How We Help

We want to support our clients to ensure they are provided with detailed and researched data on their talent needs for their latest expansion or project. Our service comprises four phases, each addressing vital questions for an organisation's hiring strategy. 

Phase 1: Global Talent Pool Analysis

Our talent pool analysis is vital to an organisation's success when placing talent with in-demand scarce skills, particularly in large volumes. We understand that talent acquisition teams are under pressure to hire while maintaining low costs and increasing diversity. Therefore, our expert research enables organisations to identify viable locations to hire the talent who will support them in achieving their goals. 

Our research provides real-time data on crucial areas, including:

  • Where talent is available 
  • Hiring costs
  • Compensation and benefits 
  • Hiring activity of competitors
  • Awareness and perception of your brand and organisation
  • Knowledge of local educational institutes 
Phase 2: Location Feasibility

Our location feasibility service provides detailed reports developed by our insight and talent analytics team that offer a deep understanding of the local talent population in a new location, country, or continent. These insights will ensure you have confidence about having your business operations in a particular location and will allow you to gain an edge over the competition. 

We are able to analyse a wide range of areas that businesses need to consider when setting up their operations, including:

  • Size of talent population 
  • Average experience levels 
  • Diversity of talent 
  • Employee benefits 
  • Cost of living 
  • Commuting trends
  • Language capabilities
Phase 3: Talent Mapping

Talent mapping provides a comprehensive insight into the current talent landscape, allowing us to identify relevant global talent aligned with the client's requirements. 

It also quantifies a particular market to enable our clients to understand the talent demographics in a specific location. This phase allows us to ask and answer the following crucial questions:

  • Where is the talent required?
  • Who are they employed by? 
  • How diverse is the talent? 
  • How prevalent is it? 
Phase 4: Talent Engagement

Talent engagement measures the strength of an employee's mental and emotional connection towards their workplace or employer. Highly engaged professionals associate their work with personal growth and are likely to show increased commitment to their employer. 

Getting talent engagement right can ensure an organisation stays ahead in a competitive market. We provide talent engagement in two methods, lite-screening and full competency-based screening.

Lite-screening: provides candidate engagement with a maximum number of mapped individuals for full competency-based screening. This screening typically has three or four agreed 'key qualifying questions'. 

Full competency-based screening: enables us to assess the candidates to generate a pipeline of Qualified-Interested-Available (QIA) talent with a detailed profile for each candidate. These candidates include talent not ready to engage now but may be suitable for an organisation's future hiring needs.
