Talent management and mobility

Talent and succession management are strategic imperatives that support the delivery of our vision and purpose. Our talent framework has been aligned to the core capabilities we require to deliver customer centricity. We recognise that individuals also have career aspirations and prefer to advance their careers with recognised employers of choice.

Our talent management cycle is integrated into our business cycle, and is viewed as a key component of human resource management. By understanding the talent and capabilities we have, we can appropriately match these to critical roles in the organisation, thereby maximising employee potential and achieving our strategic goals. This understanding also informs our development and retention plans, ensuring that we build the capabilities we need to create shared value for our stakeholders.

Critical to the success of Liberty’s growth are people, our greatest asset. The identification of highly talented professionals and potential successors for critical leadership roles across the group is key to maintaining Liberty’s competitive position as an employer of choice in the insurance industry.

We understand that managing talent is a complex and multidisciplinary area of focus. In order to be successful, we need to develop the organisational capability to identify, engage, develop and track talent within our business. During the year, we launched our talent toolkit to assist both our human resources and line managers to better manage talent in their areas. The toolkit provides our definition of what talent is, our talent management principles and practices and outlines our talent identification process.

We recognise that performers aspire to professional heights and therefore seek organisations that offer them advancement opportunities. To this end, we implemented a key initiative to retain such high calibre individuals with the formation of partnerships with leading local and international business schools that offer managers opportunities to further their development and improve their skill sets through relevant and bespoke content.

Liberty has developed management development programmes that cater for staff at all levels of the business, and key talent programmes that cater for junior up to executive management levels. Our effort to develop talent bench strength and foster leadership capabilities adds not only to the skill sets within the organisation, but helps us in striving toward our talent retention goals and improving our employee value proposition.
