Talent management

Driving organisational results by identifying
potential and harnessing talent

Having a robust talent management strategy is key to an organisation’s success.

Talent management

Unlocking the potential in your people

OPP Consultancy works with clients to integrate their talent management strategy into their people processes so that they can recruit and unlock their talent.

The success of an organisation depends on deploying talented people in the right roles now and in the future. We work with clients to help them identify, develop and retain talented people. While it can be easy to spot high performance, spotting potential can be more challenging; and the two are often confused. We help you establish objective processes for discovering and developing high potentials and succession planning. Once you have pinpointed talented individuals we provide the developmental support to help you engage them and enable them to realise their potential.

Talent management the OPP way

Defining success - We help you embed talent management within your organisational processes and ensure this is aligned with your business strategy. We work with you to define what ‘potential’ and talent looks like within your specific business context so there is no ambiguity. This definition helps us shape your talent identification to directly address your current concerns and future challenge.

Evaluating people - We use a range of evidence-based tools and techniques to objectively identify potential. We also conduct a talent audit. This involves looking beyond simple numbers to fully grasp the key strengths and development areas of your participants, their motivations and drivers. We can work with you to implement an internal evaluation process, or can provide an external viewpoint to support your talent decisions.

Growing capability - We provide a wide range of developmental support to your participants to nurture their potential, including individual coaching and feedback, skills development and leadership development. We help your high potential staff to become more self-aware in relation to behaviours and style and to align their career path to their own goals and aspirations. This helps to increase the engagement and retention of your key talented people.Talent management services offered.
