Car Wash - Fall 2016 - 50


Business owners no longer need to assume
what talents are needed and what skills or
talents people possess, he points out. "With
the help of technology and talent analytics,
it is possible to quickly get a good view on
the individuals in the organization and
match individuals and opportunities."
Businesses must also offer employees
a chance to use their talents and expand
their skills, Haak said. "Organizations that
utilize the potential of their talent by making a good match between wishes, capabilities and opportunities to craft a positive

employee experience will be winners."
Tapping into employees' skills and interests not only engages them more fully but
also gives the business an opportunity to
identify future company leaders. Haak
points to three global companies that offer
employees a chance to contribute beyond
their established job description:
* A large airline created an online market
for special assignments. All employees
can apply, regardless of their specific job,
and spend a certain amount of time on
a specific assignment.

"FLEXIBLE
SCHEDULES, WELLINCORPORATED
TECHNOLOGY, GOOD
COMMUNICATION
AND TRANSPARENCY
ARE IMPORTANT
WAYS TO
STRENGTHEN
EMPLOYEE
ENGAGEMENT."
* Arcadis, a large engineering and
design company, created a global talent program, Global Shapers, where
globally all employees with five or
fewer years of experience can apply
to work on strategic challenges of the
company.
* Booking.com, an online hotel booking
service, gives new employees in customer service and information technology an opportunity to participate in an
online selection process that includes
tests and clever simulations to make a
good match between applicants and
opportunities.
Even though larger companies have
more resources, small businesses can
adapt strategies driven by talent management trends to their own organization,
says Tom Wiederin, human resource and
recruiting manager for Crew Carwash.
With 27 locations and plans to add
three additional stores each year, Crew
Carwash not only needs to fill front-line
positions but also supervisory and management positions.
"We developed a program for entry
level supervisors who are often college
students working part-time or full-time
while going to school and planning a
career in an industry other than the car
wash industry," Wiederin said. Crew is
able to retain employees with the program by offering them an opportunity
to develop leadership skills that will
strengthen their resume upon graduation - with a significant percentage
choosing to stay in the car wash industry.
Crew's fast-track management training
program geared toward full-time, experienced or college-degreed applicants is
designed to attract applicants with leadership experience in other industries such
as retail or restaurant. "We admit 25 to 30
