Some other considerations when developing your company's talent and professional development programs:

  • Does our development program elevate the best employees, or cater to the common denominator?
  • As we scale, does our talent program enable company vision to permeate throughout the larger organization?
  • Do we inhibit (and possibly frustrate) the most talented team members through overly-rigid development and promotion structures?
  • Do we have an effective mentor and counseling program? How do we validate the outcomes of that program?
  • Do our HR processes enable or detract from the talent development processes?
