Equality and diversity is a central part of our approach to talent management, we work with organisations to achieve better representation of staff with protected characteristics at all levels of the organisation. Our diverse team includes Black occupational psychologists, disabled business psychologists and female industrial and organisational psychologists.
We carry out an analysis of your current skill requirements. This requires a consideration of which posts are hard to recruit to, turnover rates across the organisation at different levels to identify where you need talent most. As far as the future is concerned, carry out an analysis of the organisation’s future strategic direction and what skills and competencies will be required to meet those strategic ambitions and improve performance. This often considered along side the organisation’s current competency framework to ensure that talent is effectively managed to meet these competencies.
In the past we have designed and implemented career development events to help staff understand how to meet organisational competencies. We ensure that there is a level playing field so that no protected group is disadvantaged when placed in a recruitment or redundancy selection situation. Our occupational psychologists use a holistic approach that brings together strategy, process, systems, implementation and embedding, as well as evaluation.
