Businesses that struggle to attract the talent they need, do so because they don’t know where to find them or what they want.

When to use Talent Pipelining?


Disruption is an unavoidable factor in people planning and it pays to be ready when it comes. A talent pipeline can help you identify and cultivate the individuals ready to ‘step up’ when it does, thus helping to ensure business continuity (or minimal business disruption) due to unexpected changes.

Growth & Capability Building

Growth is the target of most businesses. But it can also prove their greatest challenge if it isn't planned for. As businesses grow, they need to take on new talent to continue to deliver their success. By pipelining talent and engaging with a pool of external talent in advance, growth can be managed and talent integrated as the strategy and performance dictates, substantially reducing the people risks associated with growth.

Diversity Planning

Businesses need to attract the best people. We can help you establish the strategies and relationships that will help your business broaden its talent pool. Using a talent pipeline provides a targeted approach to improving diversity at all levels within the business will lead to increased revenues and business performance.

Business Continuity & People Risk

Often described as ‘just common sense’, business continuity is also described in terms of resilience and agility. We can build a talent pipeline to help you identify the people with the resilience and agility to underpin your future business success and reduce risk.

Employer Perception Management

As it does with your customers, your business has a brand identity amongst your employees and potential employees. We can help you understand and develop your employee brand to get the best out of your people. By understanding how your brand is perceived in the marketplace and amongst new generations, we help you adapt to attract the best talent for the future.

Who & Where

To hire the right people in the future, we help you to identify who they are and where they are right now, wherever in the world. This phase in talent pipelining is called talent pool development.
