Your talent strategy is the plan and approach you deploy to identify, attract, develop, manage, and retain the right talent to meet your business goals and objectives.

Talent strategy helps you align your workforce with your strategic objectives, ensuring you have the right skills in place to drive growth and innovation. Having the right talent strategy in place leads to increased productivity, engagement and retention while reducing talent costs.

In this way, our talent strategy professionals help you move faster at reduced risk and cost.

Our AI technology has been trained to understand career profiles in the same way as an executive recruiter. It considers the organisations a person has worked in, the job titles they’ve had and the remits they’ve held. Once we provide MapX with specific criteria, it searches across the web in real time for relevant profiles and decides whether each is a close enough match to include. It also labels people’s career positions in a format that allows us to run analytics against the talent pool as a whole. All data supplied by AI for our talent intelligence projects is then reviewed by a talent expert to ensure consistency and accuracy.

Our AI technology 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. This is in stark contrast to keyword-based searching, which is commonly used by recruiting platforms. Research has shown, for example, that women typically use fewer keywords than men, so are less likely to appear in searches than male candidates despite being just as well-qualified for the role.

We offer a range of talent strategy services, including competitor, location and future function analysis.  

Our leadership consultants have worked with organisations across many different industries, helping them to design and implement effective talent strategies and get their big leadership calls right.
