Recruitment Lifecycle - Our Services

Talent Research Solutions diagram

Supporting clients across the entire recruitment lifecycle, from resource planning right through to employee retention strategy

 

Resource Planning 

These are bespoke, real-time, data driven reports to help you make key resourcing decisions.  The solutions we offer are Talent Mapping Reports and Competitor Insight Reports. Please see beneath for further information or click here to see our case studies. 

Talent Mapping Reports 

Our Talent Mapping projects allow you to better understand what talent pools are out there in your market, specifically the levels of supply and demand for particular types of talent, information on who they work for, what they do and where they are located. Our research will provide you with key information on these talent pools such as their work experience, educational backgrounds, managerial skills, past employment, average tenure and likely mobility. 

Competitor Insight Reports 

These projects look more specifically at how competitor organisations are structured, their typical roles, where they and their employees are located, where they typically hire from and what firms they lose people to. Other useful data such as their USPs, core services and positioning within the market can be obtained. We can profile as many or as few competitors as you like and we can do this locally, regionally or globally.  

 

The output from each of the above project types is a comprehensive report detailing key information pertinent to your market and your talent strategy, with clear conclusions and practical recommendations where applicable

All projects are designed bespoke to what data you want to us to uncover. A full proposal outlining the scope of works, our methodology, timings and fees can be provided free of charge with no obligation following a thorough briefing to understand your particular requirements.   

If you would like to discuss our talent, competitor and market intelligence reports in more details, please call Chloe Betteridge on 01625 541 039 or Martin Anderson on 01625 541 032.

These are services to help you attract the right talent to your business. The solutions we offer to support your talent attraction efforts are Executive Search Assignments and Attraction StrategReviews. Please see beneath for further information or click here to see our case studies.
Executive Search 
Executive Search is where we work in partnership with our client to map out, engage and secure senior level or difficult to source talent. Some key benefits which our particular approach offers, are:
 
A Fixed Fee Approach
  • Our calculation of fees is based on time spent, not as a percentage of salary
  • This means our fee will not alter, regardless of the salary offered to the eventual hire
  • This approach often provides better value and is a more honest reflection of the actual work involved
A Full Talent Mapping Report
  • Our approach to Executive Search is underpinned by thorough desk research
  • The initial phase of each project is a full talent mapping exercise of your market
  • This research phase is compiled into a full talent mapping report
  • This report is then used to determine which candidates we then engage with during the outreach phase
  • Your report will provide thorough information on each prospect against all the key criteria sought
A Discreet and Professional Route to Market
  • We understand the need for a sensitive and discreet approach to the sourcing of senior level talent
  • We have the communication skills and credibility to represent your brand in a professional manner
  • We work closely with you to ensure the right people are approached, in the right way, with the right message
Additional Support
  • We are happy to provide added value support throughout at no extra cost
  • Advice on the most effective interview process, who to involve and how to assess
  • We can access numerous personality profiling tools and aptitude tests for you to use
  • We can support at the offer stage to ensure your chosen candidate accepts
  • And we ensure they remain engaged all the way through their notice period to their start date

Attraction Strategies 
Utilising our significant experience gained through years of working with hundreds of clients, we are well placed to offer an objective review of your current candidate attraction processes. From the moment you identify a resource requirement to your market approach, interview and onboarding processes, we can assess and advise where efficiencies and enhancements can be achieved. An objective review would consider your attraction methods: materials, messages, reach and results. And it would consider your assessment methodsstakeholders involved, the interview process, tasks and tests used, communication and the candidate journey 
 
The outputs from any review project will conclude in a full and detailed report which outlines the key findings and provides very clear and practical recommendations for possible improvements and better outcomes in that particular phase of the recruitment lifecycle.  
 
All projects are designed bespoke to what you want to achieve. A full proposal outlining the scope of works, our methodology, timings and fees can be provided free of charge with no obligation following a thorough briefing to understand the specific requirements.

Talent Retention  

Our talent retention services help to ensure that you maintain a motivated and fulfilled workforce, that you minimise attrition and maximise their tenure and that your employer value proposition remains competitive. To support talent retention, we offer two services which are Employee Engagement Surveys and Retention Strategy Reviews. Please see beneath for further information or click here to see our case studies.

Employee Engagement Surveys 

Employee Engagement Surveys are a very effective way of gauging current levels of happiness and motivation among your workforce. They can uncover new ideas and suggestions to help further improve the employee experience and enhance your employer brand. If tracked consistently on a quarterly or bi-annual basis, the information and feedback derived can really help to improve performance levels, increase staff engagementand thus improve retention rates, whilst allowing the business to decrease overall spend on recruitment.  A well-designed Employee Engagement Survey can:  

  • Provide employees with a welcome and much-appreciated opportunity to provide feedback and make suggestions  
  • Enhance the sense of engagement amongst your workforce because they feel more valued, listened to and cared for  
  • Allow you, the employer, to identify and address issues swiftly and make practical changes to improve productivity and increase loyalty 

The output is a thorough report of findings, analysis and practical recommendations to increase fulfilment and loyalty among your workforce.  

All surveys are designed bespoke to what themes you want to explore. A full proposal outlining the scope of works, our methodology, timings and fees can be provided free of charge with no obligation following a thorough briefing to understand the particular requirements.   

If you would like to discuss our employee engagement surveys further, please call Chloe Betteridge on 01625 541 039 or Martin Anderson on 01625 541 032. 

Retention Strategy Reviews 

These projects would focus on your ability to motivate and retain talent. An initial phase would consider your attrition rate and compare that to competitors in your market or perhaps to particular firms known for strong staff engagement. We’d look to understand what measures are in place to track attrition and what can be done to further improve retention rates and encourage staff to remain loyal for longer periods. Areas considered might include culture, induction, training and development, flexibility and rewards 

The outputs from any review project will conclude in a full and detailed report which outlines the key findings and provides very clear and practical recommendations for possible improvements and better outcomes in that particular phase of the lifecycle. 

All projects are designed bespoke to what you want to achieve. A full proposal outlining the scope of works, our methodology, timings and fees can be provided free of charge with no obligation following a thorough briefing to understand the specific requirements.    

If you would like to find out more about our objective process reviews, please call Chloe Betteridge on 01625 541 039 or Martin Anderson on 01625 541 032.
