Turnover, mobility and talent upgrading are three issues that all companies face periodically. Turnover may be a persistent drag on the firm, or it may rear its head after a crisis, a move by a competitor, or a management change. Mobility, which is the movement of employees within a firm, is a hot topic when several important positions are vacated, which managers scramble to fill by shuffling around employees. Talent upgrading often comes up after annual performance reviews, when managers realize their low performers remain entrenched.The truth is that these three topics are directly related and need to be addressed as a single process. Disciplined upgrading of talent leads to open positions within a firm. Mobility planning leads to a set of career-enhancing employee moves to fill those positions, often followed by an infusion of talent into the firm, all of which leads to good turnover. This book describes a unified approach to turnover, mobility and talent upgrading, and how it can raise the overall talent of an organization.
