What is Talent Insight?

Talent Insight projects answer critical questions about talent using external labour market data, to influence key business decisions.

Our unique primary research approach to talent insight gathers up-to-the-minute data from highly relevant talent pools to gain sensitive, confidential market information on hiring, locations, organisation structure, employer brand, reputation, compensation and benefits.

Our intelligence adds excellent value to any talent acquisition strategy, but we go further than just analysing data. We talk to the people within the sector. Informal channels enable us to obtain strategic and unique insights unavailable from other sources.
