Just how critical are frontline leaders? At the DDI/Corporate Voices Webinar (August 7, 2013), the takeaway is that enterprises do not have to look any further for frontline leadership talent than their incumbent Veteran employees. Enterprises are focused on building internal talent and DDI's research Be Better than Average, State of Frontline Leadership identifies the characteristics of quality frontline leadership in the organizations that rate their frontline bench strength and development quality as high.
With over two-thirds of U.S. companies unable to fill job vacancies because of a lack of the right talent, Peg Walton of Corporate Voices provides insight on how many Fortune 500 companies have gotten better results with the proven "Earn and Learn" methodology. Peg provides some of their best practices, and how to put them to work in your organization.
Veteran employees are a high-value and ready-to-go resource with skills and competencies matched to high quality frontline leadership and management attributes that most F500's are challenged to identify, select, and develop.
Utilize these resources below to better understand how to uncover and develop your hidden talent and lead your organization to be "Better than Average."
