Release the Energy of HR High Potentials. Let Them See HR Leaders in Action

Release the Energy of HR High Potentials. Let Them See HR Leaders in Action

Your HR high potentials are aren’t human capital, they’re solid gold.

An HR high potential employee is worth one-and-a-half times average HR employee. And they do 96% more than the slackers.

Do you think that your salary increase budget of 2.8%, the lowest we’ve seen in 25 years, is going to keep their attention? Not likely. Know what will? Letting your high potentials see HR leadership in action.

HR Thought Leaders at The Conference Board’s Senior HR Executive Conference
I spent two days listening to leading HR executives talk about what they’re doing in their organizations. Here’s a theme for you: Not one of them talked about “getting a place at the table.” That kind of talk is for losers. For pretenders. At The Conference Board’s sessions, executives talked about what works. And why.

You know who else should have been in the room besides me? Your HR high potentials. They’re the ones you want to reward. They’re the ones you want to encourage. They’re the ones who you want to bubble up the big ideas. “HiPo’s have choices,” said Stephen R. Fussell, Senior Vice President, Human Resources at Abbott Laboratories. “They have more than double the chance to move — even in this market.”

You want your HiPo’s to stay. Besides all the good things you do at your shop, letting them attend sessions like The Conference Board’s Senior HR Executive Conference is a way to stimulate their thinking and providing them the best ideas in the HR business.

Coming up next: Lessons from the Senior HR Executive Conference, including Agile Workplace (Unilever), Deploying Talent to the Point of Highest Return (Xerox), Billions of Moments of Happiness (Coca-Cola), and a View of the Future (Futurist.com).
