A company is only as good as its talent. And a company’s talent is only as good as its talent strategy. Talent leaders can no longer get away with haphazard hiring and ineffective career management. Employees today aren’t interested in just jobs — they want meaningful careers.
Disruption in the world of work has been rapidly led by automation, digitisation and globalisation creating a tougher market for talent. Organisations are required to plan for an unknown future.
We partner with organisations to help them drive performance and engagement through individuals and leaders, supporting them to face their most complex workforce challenges. We help clients ready themselves for the future of work, through advanced analytics, leadership and assessment strategy and programme development, bespoke and core engagement surveys, ensuring the connection with reward design through career frameworks and performance strategy.
Mercer Talent Strategy are global thought leaders with 385 consultants operating in 33 countries worldwide. Our UK team of consultants have been advising organisations from across sectors for more than 20 years.
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.
Our clients choose to partner with us because we bring deep technical expertise and insights underpinned by our global research and data banks. We also offer a broader understanding of business and workforce challenges to ensure that solutions are workable and can be implemented to support systemic change.
Our consultants are connected to a global network of experts varying from strategy, to rewards, to benefits and technology. They can make this knowledge available to you as required. Just as your people challenges are not isolated, neither should your advisors be.
We are agile and provide consulting support which balances your needs with your budget and time. We partner with you to ensure we meet your requirements and bring the right strategic and tactical solutions alongside value and pace.
