A great talent strategy requires an integrated platform that supports successful execution.
This platform comprises several ‘building blocks’, which include:
• An effective branding and attraction strategy• Rigorous screening and selection• Swift onboarding processes• Learning and competency development• Career management• A succession management strategy• A leader development strategy• An effective performance management system, and a• Retention strategy
Before rushing into providing solutions, we prefer to develop an understanding of the level of maturity of the client’s current talent management practices. We do this by conducting a talent management practice review (or audit).
A review of this nature provides the foundation of facts required to start creating the strategies, solutions and infrastructure needed to build the right workforce, create a performance culture and minimise the organisation’s exposure to risk.
The review itself is a scalable diagnostic intervention, which is designed to help business leaders and HR-professionals evaluate their organisation’s talent management practice against parameters for effective practice.
Armed with data, the organisation can implement specific actions to close gaps and realign talent management processes, thereby reducing the organisation’s vulnerability and exposure to risk.
In addition to the execution of a practice review, we facilitate the design of:
• Success profiles• Talent scorecards• An assessment centre platform and associated protocols (for clients who wish to create in-house assessment capability)• Client-specific talent management governance structures.
