What if we created workplaces where we celebrated each employee’s individual talents rather than focusing on skill gaps and filling very specific roles? That’s what a recent article from Forbes suggests that organizations give serious thought to.

Instead of focusing on what’s perceived as broken, organizations could work to encourage their employees to “do what they enjoy and are good at.” In essence, flipping the perspective on internal mobility.
By leveraging your employee’s individual talents, some benefits could include a positive shift in workplace culture, greater productivity, and the opportunity to place leaders in the role where they’ll make the most impact.
