Courting the candidate-customer

Brand-conscious companies are redefining the talent acquisition experience by making sure their candidate-customers both gain tangible value from the interview process, and have the capabilities to navigate and succeed within the organization should they be offered a position.


Talent Strategies

Look first so you can take a bigger leap

Every organization wants to build and maintain a strong leadership bench, secure the supply of critical workforces and keep their people satisfied, motivated and in a state of constant development. In many companies, the programs designed to accomplish these goals were designed before the world became flat and organizational ladders gave way to organizational lattices. When it comes time to rebuild these capabilities, they have a lot of catching up to do.

Organizations facing these complex, urgent talent challenges can be tempted to jump in and start applying piecemeal solutions. That rarely works. A better approach is to understand business priorities, build a foundation of facts, identify gaps in your workforce and then create a talent strategy with associated solutions that bring it all together. No two businesses have identical formulas for talent and assembling a talent strategy requires knowledge across key areas of an organization’s goals, metrics, differentiators and infrastructure.

How we can help

Deloitte’s integrated talent approach helps clients align their business and workforce strategies to achieve their enterprise goals through five key business triggers: Mergers & Acquisitions, rapid business growth, retention, employee engagement and workforce planning & analytics. We work to gain a deep understanding of your employee populations and help you see your workforce as a value driver. From there, it’s all about creating and implementing solutions that put the right people with the right skills in the right roles at the right time. We approach talent management as an investment in programs, processes and technologies that delivers a measurable return in improved business performance. 

Bottom-line benefits

Our professionals can build a rigorous business case for any investment in talent—and track return on investment continually. We use data mining, statistical analysis and predictive modeling to demonstrate the increased value that talent strategies can bring to an organization. We deliver:
