Languishing was described by the New York Times as the dominant emotion of 2021. It describes a state in which people are neither depressed nor thriving, and accurately reflects some of the concerns employees now have about their careers since the pandemic.

After having gone through such drastic changes in the last 18 months, it’s to be expected that employees may want to take stock of their skills and potentially consider a role change.

If HR does not address this attitude change, it could be faced with the cost of either losing valuable talent or picking organisations up from a drop in productivity.

But it needn’t be this way. HR and managers can help employees to rediscover their potential and reinvigorate their careers – whilst also uncovering opportunities to support the organisation’s vision for the future – they just need to know where to look.

By helping languishing employees find their strengths, HR can bring fresh skills to areas of an organisation people might not have considered before. With a new understanding in their own capabilities, talent will thrive and business will gain as a result.

This webinar will look at how to unlock and identify potential in a way that benefits both employer and employees.

Panellists will discuss:

• Understanding potential and how to use data to explore individual’s skills
• The tools HR needs to identify employee strengths
• How to align employee talent data with business strategy reinvigorate their career
