We uncover how diverse their team is, the industries they hire from, the structure of their business functions, who the key executives are and other valuable insights.
Our talent pipelining services build a talent pool around your specific requirements with insights into the size, shape and diversity of that talent pool. Talent mapping and market research projects are ideally suited for when the critical experiences required for the role are well understood.
These executive talent mapping projects are modular and can include:
- Global, regional or country focus
- Specific focus on diversity
- Career path analysis
- Industry background analysis
- Availability and interest checking
- Compensation benchmarking
- Assessment of candidate suitability against your criteria
With over 20 years experience identifying and assessing executives internationally for some of the worlds’ biggest brands, we have a proven track record of accurately and thoroughly talent mapping markets to identify hard to find individuals. Our research teams know and understand their markets inside out, positioning them uniquely with access to diverse global networks, business intelligence and insight.
Most of our clients are on a transformation journey and some can struggle with candidate engagement due to historic perception challenges that exist with their brand. This can range from negative sentiment due to the industry they are in or simply not being known as a contemporary business on an exciting transformation journey.
We create custom candidate story packs which position the opportunity at your business in the most compelling way possible. These mobile optimised, interactive stories improve candidate engagement so that larger numbers of candidates flow through to later stages of the hiring process.
Our team will take a combination that includes interviewing key stakeholders blended with an in-depth online review and our expertise in talent acquisition to promote your company and increase engagement with hard to hire candidates.
Increasing executive diversity requires looking outside of the obvious places for talent. Our talent mapping and executive talent insight services combine sophisticated executive talent mapping technology with our research teams’ specialist knowledge and experience.
This approach allows us to rapidly cover the market, introduce fresh ideas into the search strategy and identify diverse candidates that others miss.
We use data science to find relevant target companies that others haven’t considered. Our reports include rich data-driven visualisations and charts to help you understand target companies by their size, scale, organisational capabilities, digital maturity, diversity, growth, functional structure and key players.
Our highly experienced research team uses their proven approaches for finding top talent in combination with our state of the art technology to identify candidates that others miss.
Our executive talent insights reports include rich data on the candidate pool including career path analysis, industry backgrounds, diversity, location, experience in certain types of organisation and potential fit against your specific criteria.
These reports help you understand the external talent landscape, reveal ‘hidden gem’ and diverse executives and narrow down a list of targets for a future search.
This insight we create is distilled into our market intelligence reports and uses advanced categorisation and visualisation tools to help bring the information to life.
Business leaders and HR teams find these visual market mapping reports particularly useful when presenting talent strategy ideas to their board or other senior stakeholders.
