Growth in a new continent

Our client was being targeted by a number of competitors across a number of key role families globally. This was having a negative effect on their attrition rates which would have a detrimental effect on our client’s ability to attract and retain key talent if it continued.​


Using real-time insight to guide decision making

We conducted real-time insight into three key pillars: total reward, attraction, and retention. This provided our client with a deep understanding of their competitors’ reward, attraction, and retention strategies, which allowed our client to fight back against several aggressive competitors.

Over the course of the next few months, our client introduced 75% of our overall recommendations, and we further engaged to provide search, mapping and pipelining services for both executive and volume recruitment.

Actionable Insight

Our Final Report contained:​

  • An executive Summary: a high-level, overall look at the findings of our research, key themes, and trends.​
  • Final considerations: overall conclusions and recommendations based on the insight garnered.​
  • Target company insight: detailed information including the structure and operating model for each of the five target companies.​
  • Pay & reward: detailed analysis of both primary and secondary research on base pay and packages for key roles.​
  • Brand perceptions: How the brands operating in Africa were perceived. This information was generated from Insight approach calls with relevant individuals.​
  • Candidates: A pool of candidates interested in being considered for future opportunities.  ​

Ultimately, our real-time insights influenced and shaped our client's strategic thought process and decision-making while providing a shortcut to future talent. We do not charge placement fees.​
