Louis Efron’s article titled, “When Managing Talent, Don’t Let Michael Jordan’s Failure Become Your Failure,” states….
Despite the obvious importance of aligning an employee’s talent with his or her job, a 2012 Gallup study indicated that only 50% of U.S. workers use their strengths throughout their day. More important, there are at least hundreds of thousands of employees at large organizations who each could be more effective in a different position at the same company. Maximizing the strengths and talents of your workforce to increase employee engagement and productivity, reduce attrition, and ultimately improve business results is a basic management and human resource goal.
