Do you work with a Meryl Streep? How to identify and retain star performers

This Sunday, America’s hottest celebrities will walk the red carpet in celebration of the 84th annual Academy Awards. Just because the average person will be watching the celebration at home in their slippers, doesn’t mean they’re not superstars. To help CEOs and other senior executives identify employees worthy of an accolade, Dr. Paul H. Eccher, co-founder and principal of The Vaya Group, a talent management company, and author of Optimizing Talent: What Every Leader and Manager Needs to Know to Sustain the Ultimate Workforce, put together the following list of characteristics that signal superstar employees.

Give star performers their very own Oscar moment

As the economy continues to recover and companies start hiring again, it’s crucial for businesses to prioritize initiatives that attract, engage and retain high potential employees. One way to do this is to give top performers their “Oscars moment,” whether by hosting a “red-carpet” event within the workplace or simply treating talented individuals to a company dinner. The idea is to actively recognize employee contributions and instill a workplace culture that maximizes employee engagement and productivity.
