Talent management

Top talent assessment and retention is never out of reach

Hiring and retaining people who propel your business forward takes expertise at every step: from preparing the first job listing, to developing employees, and beyond. Create a strategy to select and retain talented people with the support of a world-class talent management solution.

Our pre-hire selection assessments allow your company to make smart hiring choices based on objective and rigorous methods that determine role readiness, commitment, and culture fit.

And, to help mature your employees' capabilities, we offer a professional development coaching practice, as well as leadership development centers. In these environments, your high-potential employees can become equipped to develop key skills and leadership competencies.

Talent management is the process of building and sustaining a high-performing workforce. Talent management includes pre-hire assessments and employee professional development to improve retention and fill skills gaps.

An effective talent management strategy ensures incoming employees are right for the role and existing employees are engaged. Both pre-hire and post-hire strategies are essential to a dynamic and productive workforce.

Talent management includes unbiased pre-hire assessments that align with your business so you hire right from the start. Post-hire, talent management focuses on leadership development and skills training. This demonstrates you invest in your employees’ careers, and ensures you have in-house talent with the skills you need.

Companies lacking a talent management strategy slip into reactive hiring. This impacts hiring quality, time to hire, and the morale of existing employees who must often take on extra responsibilities.

The talent process focuses on pre-hire assessments and post-hire employee development. Key elements include:

  • Determining must-have skills for crucial roles.
  • Pre-hire assessments for skills and situational effectiveness.
  • Hiring manager interview training to improve hiring outcomes.
  • High-potential talent identification.
  • Skills development tailored to learning styles.
  • Leadership training.
