Recruitment may be down but the war for talent remains a fierce as ever. Indeed, some employers see these difficult times as an opportunity to target competitors’ employees who have been made redundant. That is one of the many interesting findings from a recent survey commissioned by StepStone recruitment (see here for the full article).

The survey goes on to identify the vital role that HR can play in identifying and nurturing talent. However, with the focus ever more on the bottom line, functions such as HR are increasingly challenged to demonstrate their return on investment (ROI).

Demonstrating ROI is an ongoing challenge. Though it is relatively simple to look at the bottom line or other indicators of performance at an organisational level, identifying the impact of individuals is much more of a challenge.

Consider this question: What constitutes ‘success’ for particular job roles in your organisation?

And now this one: How well do you measure individuals against these ‘success’ criteria?

These can be challenging questions, but it is exactly these types of question that our expertise in assessment and measuring people performance can help you solve. If you are interested in finding out how you can identify talent and demonstrate your return on investment, please contact us.
