Strategic Talent Planning

An evidence-based consulting project led by an experienced team with expertise in the function or Industry.

These projects are useful for engaging senior stakeholders around future function planning where the critical experiences required in a role or function are different to the current environment, or for insights into competitor talent strategy.

We work with you to select a number of relevant companies to focus on, typically either competitors or businesses from an industry or specific capability that is of particular interest. 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.

Building a talent pool around a specific list of requirements with insights into the size, shape and diversity of that talent pool. Talent mapping projects are best when the critical experiences required for the role are well understood.

EVP Candidate Story Packs

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.
