How we help

Talent Intelligence can be established as a stand-alone function, as additional capabilities attached to a Talent Acquisition team, an extension to people analytics within HR, or a branch of business intelligence that connects to Talent and HR. 

Building on 30 years of experience in partnering with global, blue-chip organisations, we provide clients with the tools, training, expertise and capacity to realise immediate benefits from Talent Intelligence.

Speak to an Expert

We set out the strategies and roadmaps for scaling and developing the function, creating a competitive advantage for your business.

Whether you are building a Talent Intelligence function from scratch, augmenting or upskilling an existing Talent Acquisition team, or looking to build on existing talent intelligence capabilities, we will develop a proposal and framework to help achieve your goals.

We start with an initial consultation to understand your goals and to get to know your unique context. This includes an analysis of your current capabilities, technology and tools, processes, current operating model, stakeholders and current vendors. We then work with you to develop a model that applies leading talent intelligence capabilities into your business environment to ensure success.
