The best companies use predictive measures to identify true high-potentials, compare them against the competition and develop them through on-the-job learning to drive performance impact.
The SHL Approach to HIPO identification
High-potentials are frequently mistaken for those who are performing well today. However, only 1 in 7 high performers have the critical motivation and behaviors to be considered a true HIPO. Too many programs focus their efforts on the wrong people, which results in wasted resources.
SHL has studied high-potential employees and high-potential programs for over a decade and has identified the critical factors that determine their success.
Our model defines high-potential and helps to answer three critical questions:
Who will rise to more senior positions?
Who will be effective in more challenging roles?
Who are committed to the organization and will stay?
