Talent intelligence and talent solutions

 

Organisations know that talent is the key success factor for every business today. This will ensure organisations achieve strategic and competitive advantage by having on-demand access to a pipeline of top local and global talent.

Mercer | Evolve also specialises in the identification of leading female talent and more importantly, can provide key gender diversity insights to assist in attracting and onboarding top talent.


 


 

Succession Planning

 

Succession risk management

 

Organisations know that talent is the key success factor for every business today. This will ensure organisations achieve strategic and competitive advantage by having on-demand access to a pipeline of top local and global talent.

 

Effective succession planning provides an organisation with confidence that they are prepared and protected, and allows them to respond quickly in times of change. We provide a comprehensive map of your external and internal talent landscape against your executive structure, whether the need is company-wide, divisional or for an individual role.

 

Using a confidential and discreet selection process, we establish pools of high-potential external successors in line with your requirements. Potential successors are assessed for their alignment to organisational priorities and values. We develop a deep understanding of the motivations and aspirations of each individual within these talent pools, and maintain contact to ensure their ongoing engagement.

 

We also assess your internal candidates to understand your internal successors and internal talent map. At a high level, the solution is intended to give you insights into the leadership bench strength and succession readiness of internal talent, as well as detailed internal succession plans for each critical or pivotal role, protecting your business continuity.


 


 

Talent Alignment

 

Talent and capability assessment

 

As organisations look to successfully execute on their strategy over the next 3-5 years, having the right talent and capability in place will be the key to success. However, what do ‘talent’ and ‘leadership’ look like for your organisation, and across all levels of leadership? And, how would an organisation effectively assess and develop these capabilities?

 

Mercer | Evolve provides data driven insights to help businesses make better informed decisions about talent. We design and execute assessments across the entire talent life cycle; from sourcing talent to assessing for leadership succession, Board and Executive readiness, and overall talent development.

 

Our assessments are designed to align to an organisation’s 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.


 


 

Market Intelligence

 

Competitor intelligence

 

As businesses strive to become leaders and disruptors in their field, understanding market and talent insights is critical for success, particularly when determining the right workforce design for your organisation.

 

Mercer | Evolve’s competitor intelligence brings a deep understanding of a market, analysing where your organisation is positioned in relation to your competitors. We provide leaders with powerful insights to improve organisational performance. Most importantly, this allows organisations to mitigate the risks 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 and initiatives of a competitor or industry.
