Talent mapping research can take several forms:

  • You may want a general review of senior talent within your market or within a specific geographical region
  • There could be a need to focus on a specific vacancy which may exist now or is anticipated to exist in the near future
  • You might want to conduct some organisational mapping of competitors
  • You may want to understand if the right sort of talent exists around a new office location
  • Talent mapping projects can also be extended into pipelining research or executive search assignments with a subsequent phase of engagement 

The Employer Value Proposition (EVP) is the balance of the rewards and benefits received by employees in return for their effort and performance at work. It’s a form of employer branding used as a platform to attract and retain a motivated workforce. A good EVP needs to be unique within your market and attractive to current and potential employees.  Our Value Proposition Research would assess how strong your current EVP is perceived to be, both in its content and its communication. The research would inform how the EVP can be strengthened to enable you to better differentiate your employer brand from your competitors.

This is a thorough assessment of all your attraction and retention processes.   We will assess how well your current materials and methods are working to attract talent, and how effective your interview process is in enabling you to select the right candidate every time. Invaluable information will also be gleaned in relation to how successful or otherwise your current retention strategy is, and how that could be improved further.

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 EVP and employee relations internally. If tracked consistently on a bi-annual basis, the information and feedback derived can really help to improve performance levels and increase retention rates, allowing the business to decrease overall spend on recruitment. These can be included in the fuller EVP review or can be conducted as stand-alone surveys.
