A company is only as good as its talent. And a company’s talent is only as good as its talent strategy.
Talent leaders can no longer get away with haphazard hiring and ineffective career management. Employees today aren’t interested in just jobs — they want meaningful careers.
Put yourself in the shoes of a city master planner. It’s up to you to decide where highways need to connect neighbourhoods, where concrete jungles need to be dressed with greenery, and where bus and subway stops should sit. In short, you have to anticipate people’s needs and design a thriving city — not just for today but for years to come.
As a talent leader, you have the ability to shape a thriving and productive landscape across offices, regions, and even continents. But success rests on an astute talent strategy. Mercer’s Human Capital Scan can help
"62% of organizations rate themselves as ineffective at workforce planning."
Combining human capital data, exclusive research, and expert consulting, we’re ready to help you create the best plan for your workforce ecosystem.
No planner has resources to waste. You want to make sure every dollar counts and that every desk (virtual or otherwise) is occupied by a person who’s contributing to the success of your business. Use our talent strategy road map to analyze your business strategy, identify issues within your talent management systems, and define actionable talent initiatives to fill the gaps.
Do you really understand your people — who they are, how they’re performing, and where you’re losing them? Turn “we think” into “we know”: Use our workforce planning tool or proprietary Internal Labour Market analysis platform to assess your internal labour pool. The true story of your workforce is in the data, and you can use the data to determine which talent investments are really paying off and where you should be focusing for the future.
We’re entering a new era of performance management. Instead of looking back at what an employee has done, today’s people leaders are inspiring them with exciting career prospects ahead.
We can help you provide your people with careers that count. Our research shows that careers are a key engagement driver for talent — surpassing pay in some markets. If your employees don’t feel that they’re on an exciting career journey, your talent city could look very different in a few years.
Our approach to performance and career management, including our employee-centric CareerView app, takes the long view on careers to ensure that the lifeblood of your organization doesn’t drain away.
Our research provides hard data and insights into talent challenges around the world, from what leadership competencies are critical in different markets to how companies are solving talent mobility challenges. And we provide practical solutions to fixing the issues we identify.
"With the right tools, identifying potential can be a science. Mercer partnered with us to identify and develop leaders with a growth mindset."
