Adopting an agile approach to attracting talent and skills

The new world of work is one of digital transformation and increasing automation. Such fundamental change requires innovative ways of mapping, developing and bridging skills across the workforce. There’s a shift away from linear career paths as skills emerge as the employment currency of the future. For business, this means building access to skills to successfully operate in this new, wider employment ecosystem. For employees, this means thinking differently about how they navigate this landscape to best deploy their skills across different teams, locations and the wider workforce.

We know organisations often struggle with predicting the skills they need, understanding the skills they already have, and preparing to meet future skills requirements, which is why, as a leading supplier of talent services, we’re supporting an increasingly agile approach to talent attraction and deployment  - that of ‘buy’, ‘borrow’ and ‘build’.

From recruitment campaigns which attract high quality candidates to assessment design, onboarding and screening, our industry experts help you respond quickly to evolving requirements. Once your new people are onboard, you can build their skills to develop their career with you with our flexible, relevant learning and development programmes.

If you’re looking to ‘borrow’ talent, we offer expert, scalable resourcing to fill skills gaps, including flexible talent management schemes so you have access to the right people and skills at the point of need.

We help you align talent strategy to specific requirements, using evidence and data to benchmark performance. And our market-leading technology supports the entire recruitment and HR life cycle, providing valuable insight to enable you to manage peaks and troughs.
