Identifying and valuing talent is a key part of creating a highly skilled and capable financial services team and can help turn personal aspiration into professional motivation. Talent does not refer only to rising stars, but also to those highly committed staff who turn up day after day and perform well.

A formal performance and talent management process will provide a structured approach to recognising and valuing talent and provide a pathway of opportunities for personal and professional development.

Experience and exposure gained outside the finance function will develop a greater awareness and understanding of the issues that affect the organisation and its operational managers. Secondments and leading projects are great for learning and experience.

A few tips: A simple thank-you can be quite powerful, but you have to really mean it. And if you do have a structured performance and talent management process, remember that the real value often lies in the honest discussions it engenders.
