workforce, rewards and talent

talent strategy defines business success

 

What’s your talent management strategy?

 

Elevate your workforce with succession planning and leadership development.

Imagine you are a city planner. Where do highways need to connect neighborhoods? Where should concrete = be dressed with greenery? Where might the bus and subway stops sit?

In much the same way, a strategic workforce plan must anticipate and address talent needs for years to come.

As a talent leader, you shape a thriving and productive landscape across offices, regions and even continents. Conduct a leadership talent assessment to pinpoint a strategy for success. Mercer’s Human Capital Scan can help.

 

Are You a Master Talent Planner?

Put yourself in the shoes of a city master planner. It’s up to you to decide where highways need to connect neighborhoods, 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. 

62% of organizations rate themselves as ineffective at workforce planning.

Do you really understand your people—who they are, how they’re performing and where you’re losing them? You need the best plan for your workforce that combines human capital data, exclusive research and expert consulting.

Using workforce analysis will ensure that every dollar counts and every desk (virtual or otherwise) is occupied by someone contributing to your success.

How Mercer Can Help

With Mercer’s talent strategy road map, you can update your business strategy, identify gaps within your talent management systems and define actionable talent initiatives.

Assess your internal labor pool with Mercer’s workforce planning tool or proprietary Internal Labor Market Analysis platform. With these workforce analytics, you can determine which talent investments are 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.

Our approach to performance and career management, including our employee-centric Mercer Career View app, takes the long view on careers to ensure that the lifeblood of your organisation doesn’t drain away.

Global leadership is no longer the preserve of expats or senior executives. A global leader is anyone who works across geographic and cultural boundaries. Global leaders can be found at the most senior levels or at the front line of your organistion. Even early career professionals are working regionally and globally, interacting with an increasingly diverse range of colleagues and customers. This means that a wider cadre of leaders must develop the unique skill set necessary for global leadership success.

How organisations are responding to the challenges of talent scarcity, globalization, and the era of the individual is just a portion of the issues that will determine which companies win out over their competitors in the race for talent. Developing a thriving workforce requires business modelling and industry insights to know what levers will have an impact. Are you prepared?

  • Develop a talent strategy road map.
