Solving strategic talent challenges

Mercer | Evolve is here to help solve your strategic talent challenges by using a data-driven, holistic approach.

What We Do >

Talent pipelining, reinvented

We work with you to identify, understand and benchmark the world’s best talent for your organisation, helping you to acquire talent, establish global and local talent pools and create succession pipelines. Our aim is to help you develop a comprehensive, data-driven understanding of your internal and external talent landscape.

Are you prepped for success?

We establish pools of high-potential external successors and understand how they align to organisational priorities and values. We develop a deep understanding of the motivations and aspirations of each of these individuals and how effectively they will perform for your organisation.

We also assess your internal candidates to give you insights into the leadership bench strength and succession readiness of any internal talent. We provide detailed internal succession plans for each critical or pivotal role, protecting your business continuity.

Know your strengths and weaknesses

Our talent and capability assessments are designed to align your business values, context and operating environment. We use a combination of both stable potential, malleable potential, and external and contextual factors to land on a full picture of a candidate’s readiness for a targeted role.

We also provide best-in-class benchmarking, including external norms (industry and geography specific) to assist you in future proofing your business from a talent perspective.

How do you stack up against the rest?

We aim to use competitor intelligence to bring you a deep understanding of your market conditions, analysing where your organisation is positioned in relation to your competitors. We provide leaders with powerful insights to improve organisational performance and mitigate the risk involved with operational and strategic decisions, particularly when it comes to creating the right workforce for today and tomorrow.

We use a number of discrete research and intelligence methods to understand functional and organisational structures, key talent, talent inventories, and the strategic priorities of a competitor or industry.
