Talent Intelligence FAQs

Our talent intelligence services offer you the best of both worlds. On the one hand, we use cutting-edge AI technology, which enables us to gather data at a pace and scale way beyond what traditional methods can achieve. On the other hand, all the data we gather is challenged, validated and analysed by a team of expert leadership consultants. It’s a uniquely powerful combination of technical ingenuity and human insight.

Talent intelligence enables you to make data-driven decisions and align your talent strategies with business goals. It offers valuable insights on everything from recruitment to succession planning, from employee engagement to workforce analytics.

Our experts draw data from numerous sources, which they then validate and visualise through analytics. Their analysis uncovers trends, patterns and examples that enable you to make confident leadership decisions.

Talent intelligence is useful for validating your talent acquisition strategies, particularly when hiring for new capabilities and roles. It helps you to avoid misguided senior recruitment investments and enables you to effectively prioritise when, where and who to hire.

Talent intelligence provides data-driven insights on the size, shape, diversity and mobility of critical talent populations. This helps you make more informed decisions when building pipelines for critical leadership positions.

Our talent intelligence experts are supported our proprietary AI technology. The AI is built to mimic executive search methodology at a pace and scale impossible to achieve with traditional methods.  The team validate and analyse the data collected to produce board-ready insights for you and your organisation.

Our AI identifies relevant candidates based on company and people capability alone. It does not make selections based on any demographic characteristics. It is trained solely on the technical career markers recruitment teams look for when determining relevancy for inclusion within a project.

Talent intelligence incorporates advanced technology and data analytics to provide as close as possible to 100% market coverage. This results in insights that are based on robust data, rather than on intuition or a narrow market view.
