In order for organizations to succeed, it is imperative that they make use of their most advantageous resource, their employees. An understanding of each employee’s strength is crucial to leveraging the same to meet an organization’s objectives (Donovan & Benko, 2016). Understanding employee strengths enables organization leaders and policymakers determine where employee strengths can be put to the best use, fulfilling both the organization’s goals and ensuring employee satisfaction.
For example, take an employee that is good with details, that is innovative, is a good planner, strong on documentation and understands emerging industry trends. Confining such an employee to repetitive clerical work will not only demoralize the employee, but also stifle organization growth. There are various toolkits available to help organizations, particularly senior and intermediate managers, determine the strengths of the employees under their supervision (Morgenstern, 2017; Donovan & Benko, 2016). Utilizing such tool kits is invaluable in mapping out and configuring an organization’s human resources for the best performance outcomes.
Regrettably, many organizations regardless of their size fail to tap into the unique talent mix their employees bring to the workplace. Rigid management paradigms coupled with inflexible workplace cultures that have developed overtime are major hindrances to identifying and making use of employee strengths (Morgenstern, 2017). Interpersonal conflicts at the workplace also undermine the full utilization of employee talent.
On the other hand, studies show that there are organizations that take the management of their employee’s seriously, with the technology field in particular showing tremendous human resource innovations (Donovan & Benko, 2016). In addition to utilizing teams where each individual brings unique strengths to a working unit, the reskilling of longtime employees has also yielded dividends for organizations in the technology field transitioning from legacy to digital structures.
