Talent acquisition and management has changed hugely in the last few years: there has been a seismic shift in the expectations of the workforce, and huge talent gaps created.

Employees now expect more from their employers: more flexible working, mental health support, career development, and transparency and trust around company values, to mention only the most major shifts.

In the current climate, talent leaders need to develop strategies for managing talent across its whole lifecycle – from attracting potential candidates at the top of the funnel through to development, promotion and beyond. You need a skills-based approach to talent management that relies on looking at your candidates and employees holistically, by considering both their current and future skills, and understanding the drivers of their ambitions and professional goals. In other words, you need Talent Lifecycle Management.

Thinking strategically and taking a talent-first approach – and a skills-based approach to matching people with work to be done – puts more power in your hands as a talent team. You get a more granular view of talent, giving you a richer data source to make smarter decisions: you can start to forecast your skill needs and create more tailored talent development journeys. And it drives real value for your business, widening your talent pool, and enabling better internal talent mobility, retention and performance.
