Are you planning for a new service or division, or launching in a new country? Whatever your reason for wanting to assess what talent is available to you, Research Europe can provide thorough talent availability surveying so that you understand your talent landscape.
The positive impact of understanding talent availability
Ideally, talent availability will be a forward planning service that feeds into your wider business strategy. It will help you make informed decisions about the direction of your business so that you can proceed with confidence that you will have the employee base to deliver your goals.
It may also influence your learning and development activities and employer brand. You gain new understanding in how you need to develop the skillsets of your existing staff and/or alter the perception of your employer brand. And if you are caught on the back foot following unforeseen circumstances, it will help you regain the initiative.
By understanding what talent is available in your industry, you will be in a stronger position to hire the right individuals and teams to achieve commercial success.
I have worked with Steve Buchanan and his team over ten years and across various search environments of my own in the TMT space – whether boutique or the largest global firm. I trust them in all circumstances. They are diligent, professional and a pleasure to work with. They also display the same high level of client and candidate care on which we provide ourselves.
