Finance leaders need to keep their eyes on the future, assess current talent gaps, and address employee retention to help recognize the best results from investing in talent development programs for high-potential finance employees, according to APQC’s research on Developing High-Potential Talent in Financial Management. 

APQC discovered a direct relationship between how prepared employees are before starting finance development programs and their effectiveness after completion. If organizations want better prepared future high-potential leaders, they must ensure that the finance organization is investing the time and effort to develop them. The finance organization itself needs to be prepared first to ensure its employees are prepared.
