Benchmarking talent

We can provide in-depth information across a range of areas, including:

  • labour market insight
  • employment statistics
  • competitor hiring activity
  • organisation design, including department size and reporting structures
  • recent news regarding hiring activity
  • salary benchmarking
  • role benchmarking

These insights provide a real-time view of the market. They’re particularly relevant if you want to increase employee attraction or retention, understand the options for restructuring or want insights to make informed strategic changes.


Location insight and strategy

Are you looking at relocating, considering opening a new office or facility or expanding your operations? We’ll research the availability of talent and the feasibility of that location, so you understand the size of the talent pool and the levels of pay and reward in the catchment area.

This allows you to make location decisions based on real time knowledge of the market, minimising risk and ensuring you know that you can meet your staffing needs.

This is particularly essential as businesses adapt to new ways of working in light of the pandemic.
