Development of Employees

Understanding strengths and weaknesses

A study from AS3 has shown that 21% of job changes are due to a desire for personal and professional development. A lack of focus on employee development can be costly, as your organization risks having to pay if the best employees leave because of this.

The costs can be both direct as recruitment costs or indirect in the form of start-up inefficiencies, lost revenue and disruption and adaptation costs.

There is a lot of money to be saved and the first step for you is to identify which employees need development and what kind of development they need.


Ensure proper development

Unfortunately, we often see that companies only talk to their employees about competence development. However, much can be gained by increasing employee self-awareness, as most people often benefit from knowing their own strengths and weaknesses.

The TT38 test facilitates better knowledge, and in this way it enables employees to showcase their talents. With increased understanding comes increased control over talent – roughly speaking, employees go from being slaves to their unreflective cognitive habits to managing and using them in the best possible way.

A talent-aware workforce leads to higher productivity, and improving process thinking as a whole is often worth more than just slapping on more individual skills.

Train managers to develop employees

An important element of effective employee development is the crucial role of managers. Up to 70% of employee engagement is directly linked to their immediate manager, and it is also the manager who is responsible for the daily staging of the employee’s talent.

In a figurative sense, it’s the coach of a football club who is responsible for the continuous development of his players day in and day out. The coach doesn’t tell his players to go to the sports director so they can be developed into stars.

Statements from happy customers

"In DOVISTA, we view “selection” as one of our most important competences, as our ability to choose the right people for the right position are crucial to creating the optimal organization.

In HR we have until recently based interviews on 4-factor profiles, which is an excellent conversation tool, but at the same time we were aware that we were missing an analysis and development tool.

Therefore, we choose to enter a collaboration with Talents Unlimited on their TT38 “Talent test” which gives us new and better opportunities to put together teams and organization based on a thorough test. It gives us opportunities we haven't had before. The fact that we have chosen to become certified ourselves, is because we see the tool utilized far wider than solely for recruitment, which is why we prefer it in-house, which allows us to work more agile, by having the competence ourselves"

"Personality tests have the effect of providing a rather caricatured - and therefore limited - image of a human being. TT38 is not like that.

TT38 draws a nuanced profile that better takes into account the often very contradictory qualities we each possess. The conclusions are not limited to "blue personality with a little green, so this is who you are", but is based on data on a wide range of personal traits and takes into account the interaction between them. It is all presented in a relatively straightforward way and is complemented by knowledgeable questioning and interpretation by Talents Unlimited, allowing the final nuances to come along

The warmest recommendations from here for both recruitment, efficiency and sheer curiosity"

"Talents Unlimited conducted the TT38 Talent Test on everyone in our team. It has been an eye-opening process for all parties, where each of us has been identified with personality, values, human top talents and non-talents - as well as their paradoxes.

I, as well as employees, are now geared to individualize the types of tasks we each enjoy the most, so that we can solve them with the least possible energy and get the highest possible output.

I really feel that we have shaped the pieces and we can now start to puzzle and create some even better teams that understand and complement each other's talents.

It will give us a better bottom line. Economically as well as socially"

"In our selection of candidates, TT38 has
predicted the behavior 100% right each time!
The 3 times we chose not to follow the test
the candidate failed!"

"At Canon, we have a strong focus on hiring the right profiles that can succeed in our highly competitive market. Therefore, in collaboration with Talents Unlimited, we have used the TT38 Talent Test to define a success profile in sales that shows the talents a seller must have to be successful in our industry.
We can see that when we are loyal to our success profile, our success rate is higher in getting a salesperson to succeed in the job. This is of great benefit to both the employee and the company.
We have now gone one step further and have used the TT38 Talent Test in connection with team building in our sales team. The sellers and executives have become more focused on their talents and how they can become even better sellers, as well as how the sales team improve each other with each other's talent contributions"
