What problems does Talent Intelligence solve?
Our Talent Intelligence service comprises three areas of specialism and expertise; talent research, talent pooling and talent insight.
Used independently or in combination, these three core strands can help you to make informed and strategic recruitment decisions that can help you gain a competitive advantage and drive business performance.
Attracting, recruiting and retaining employees can cause ongoing problems and frustrations, often traced back to a lack of knowledge or insight into the marketplace drivers and trends.
Understanding local employment environments, candidate needs and requirements, benchmarking local salary levels and conducting competitor analysis can significantly improve results when used to define a recruitment strategy.
Our talent research team has helped clients to understand why recruitment campaigns have failed. Through detailed research and analysis, we’ve identified why clients have struggled to attract the type of candidate they desire. We’ve helped them understand why they may not be attractive to candidates or whether the type of candidate they seek exists.
This informed approach allows clients to tailor their requirements to keep ahead of their competitors, build and maintain a compelling employer brand and maximise success with their recruitment requirements.
Our confidential and comprehensive talent research can help.
We can help you with:
- Understanding the market or role that you need to hire in
- Talent mapping
- Niche talent identification
- Talent benchmarking
- Using research to understand where things have gone wrong and solving the problem
Our talent pooling team is often retained by clients to investigate and assess the candidate landscape in preparation for recruitment strategies or campaigns. As employer brand ambassadors for our clients, our talent pooling team will proactively approach candidates to assess their suitability and interest for future client roles. The team will maintain contact with relevant candidates to ensure they are primed, informed and interested when roles become available.
This proactive approach to candidate sourcing and vetting gives clients a far greater chance of successfully filling their vacancies with the desired calibre of candidate and in the shortest time possible – both for immediate and future needs.
