A high-potential employee is usually in the top 5% of employees in an organization. These people are thought to be the organization’s most capable, most motivated, and most likely to ascend to positions of responsibility and power.
Though in most companies High-potentials are frequently mistaken for those who are performing well today. However, only 1 in 7 high performers have the critical motivation and behaviors to be considered a true HIPO. Too many programs focus their efforts on the wrong people, which results in wasted resources.
Identifying high potentials and ensuring they are ready for the next level is an essential part of the employee talent management process.
However for all its importance succession planning is not an issue that many organizations address in any systematic way partly as the organisation needs to have an effective way of identifying what is talent.
Measuring high potential employees on attributes like sales, margins, and leads is reasonably simple, but what about factors that aren’t so easy to measure? Traits such as personality, intelligence, attitude, and beliefs those are critical to an employees’ performance at the next level.
