What is the Talent Management Life Cycle?

What is the Talent Management Life Cycle?

As part of the “Cycles of Success: Employee Engagement, Career Development & Talent Management” series (learn more about it at, we conducted several interviews with Nicole Trapasso, Division Director of HR and Organizational Development at CPP, Inc. Over the next few months you’ll see blog posts from these interviews and more on topics related to talent management and the phases of the talent management life cycle. If you’d like to read more about career development from the personal or employee side, you can find the first blog post in the series here:


What is the talent management life cycle?

There are various models of the talent management life cycle. Some are unique to specific company cultures or industries, while others are more general. They all start from the initial touch points a company has with potential employees and show how, once hired, those employees move through the company. Most models encompass all the phases or steps in employees’ career progression.

Among the chief concerns of HR people today are (1) matching candidates to jobs based on their ability to handle the job-lifecycle1_c2researchspecific challenges they are likely to face and (2) finding out what candidates are seeking—such as ongoing investment in their professional development that will enable them to not only grow but also give back, and opportunities to experience a lot of different things in their career. When looking at areas for organizational improvement, it can be helpful to map these concerns onto the talent management life cycle model to get a clear picture of where programs can be implemented for employees.

One simple example can be found above from C2 Research.

One of the most interesting challenges facing HR today is the increasing rate of change of technology, and how that’s affecting all parts of the talent management life cycle. The career path model of 30 years ago is very different from what people expect today from their employment life cycle. From the employee perspective, the infographic at the bottom of the blog is a great example of the modern employment life cycle created by Boxer Property.

For employees, the new model may mean having a variety of careers that all have a common thread running through them. For employers, it means looking at how they can meet and develop those people wherever they are in their own employee life cycle.

At CPP, we have a long-standing tradition of developing our employees and growing from within. And ,of course, using our own assessments is one of our keys to fostering that employee growth. Within our organization, employee tenure tends to be above other companies based on culture that fosters learning and growth. . Since we strive  to meet the development needs of employees and help them in their personal and professional growth, we’ve been able to engage many CPPers—including our CEO— while they perform various roles throughout their tenure at CPP. Many staff believe they have essentially had many careers here. I believe this has given them the meaning they’re looking for both professionally and personally while keeping them  sufficiently challenged with the ever changing demands of the business and external marketplace.
