How organisations stack up today

According to the 2023 Talent Health Index, most organisations ranked in the Administrative level, demonstrating a mastery of the basics and very early exploration of new innovation. In this level, talent programs are behind in automation and have yet to build a robust learning strategy leaving ample room for growth and improvement.

By remaining stable at this level, organisations are failing to provide their people with comprehensive growth opportunities to reach their full potential.

The secret to talent success

But there’s good news! This stagnant state is curable. Talent programs don’t have to remain unhealthy — it’s possible to take practical steps forward to improve talent program maturity. In fact, organisations deemed High-Performing Organisations (HPOs) consistently scored better in the Talent Health Index.

The Talent Health Index dives deeper into these global trends, revealing the signs of under-performing talent programs and steps you can take to progress your program to the next level.
