Total talent management
Holistic & integrated strategies for internal & external resourcing
Historically, many employers have created silos of responsibility for permanent recruitment, contingent workforce management and internal progression/succession planning.
We believe the future belongs to organisations that think about talent in its totality. Especially now that the pandemic has forced a pivot moment on both workforces and workplaces.
Total talent management provides a smart, joined-up approach to internal and external resourcing – and enables you to explore new ways to access and engage the talent your organisation needs.
Total talent management in practice
Total talent management begins with building an understanding of what outputs are needed to achieve your organisation’s goals. Then your current workforce is assessed against its capability to deliver.
You gain a rich understanding of internal strengths, competencies and experience – enabling you to identify both skills gaps and untapped potential. This insight then directly informs a new strategic workforce plan, and a new strategic hiring plan, encompassing both permanent and contingent talent.
External, internal, perm, temp, contract, service providers, freelance or alumni – we'll help you to design a workforce strategy to flexibly access the valuable skills and expertise within your organisation’s internal and external talent ecosystem.
Total talent management empowers you to realise the potential in career mobility and succession planning. Upskilling, re-skilling and redeploying current employees can be a potent, cost-effective alternative to external hiring (or a complementary activity to it).
Total talent management also provides a platform for creating the ideal balance in blended workforces of permanent and contingent talent. Beyond this we consider the many different ways to access talent – determining the optimum talent engagement mechanisms and corresponding operating models. The result is a tangible impact on speed, quality and cost – and sustainable access to the talent needed to achieve business goals.
