Manage your people

Harness talent for top performance

All businesses start with talented people. Staying successful means keeping the supply of talent flowing over time. Drawing on our work with the world’s best companies (which are particularly good at this) and our own in-depth research, we can help you put the right people in the right jobs, now and in the future.

Make sure you have the right people for the future

With the right people in the right jobs, today and for tomorrow, you’re all set for success. Good talent management is one of the reasons the world’s top companies get to the top and stay there. We know this because we work closely with them and research this field intensely. Hay Group’s talent management solutions are based on what we've learned:

  • Competency modelling. Built on the seminal work of American psychologist Dr David McClelland, Hay Group competency modeling helps to define the knowledge, skills and attributes you need, and to match people to roles in which they’ll flourish.
  • Talent audits. We show you how performance and potential is dispersed across your management levels, highlighting any skills gaps and allowing you to match talent with critical roles in an objective, unbiased way.   
  • Career mapping. To make sure people’s skills fit their jobs, we create realistic, effective career maps. For the ‘mission critical’ roles your company must get right in order to grow, we identify the steps people must take to reach them.
  • Performance management. We make the link between your strategy, culture and individual performance targets in a way that increases productivity.  
  • Succession planning. Starting by understanding your strategy and the jobs that matter most to it, we create a succession ‘framework’, and then identify how to give your key people the skill and experience you’ll need to create a pipeline of future leaders and managers.

Our solutions are proven to work in the real world. They’re based on years of data about human performance and draw on the best practices of top companies.

We help with the whole talent management process, from decoding your strategy right through to identifying exactly what actions are needed to develop key staff. The result is that you’re better positioned to identify, develop and retain people – and to ensure a steady supply of talented employees and leaders for the future.
