What’s your talent management strategy?

Elevate your workforce with succession planning and leadership development.

 

Strategic Workforce Planning Benefits

Imagine you are a city planner. Where do highways need to connect neighborhoods? Where should concrete =be dressed with greenery? Where might the bus and subway stops sit?

In much the same way, a strategic workforce plan must anticipate and address talent needs for years to come.

Elevate your workforce with succession planning and leadership development.

As a talent leader, you shape a thriving and productive landscape across offices, regions and even continents. Conduct a leadership talent assessment to pinpoint a strategy for success. Mercer’s Human Capital Scan can help.

62% of organizations rate themselves as ineffective at workforce planning.

Savvy Planning Backed by Workforce Analytics

Do you really understand your people—who they are, how they’re performing and where you’re losing them? You need the best plan for your workforce that combines human capital data, exclusive research and expert consulting.

Using workforce analysis will ensure that every dollar counts and every desk (virtual or otherwise) is occupied by someone contributing to your success.

With Mercer’s talent strategy road map, you can update your business strategy, identify gaps within your talent management systems and define actionable talent initiatives.

Assess your internal labor pool with Mercer’s workforce planning tool or proprietary Internal Labor Market Analysis platform. With these workforce analytics, you can determine which talent investments are paying off and where you should be focusing for the future.

Build Up Employees with Career Management and Leadership Development

We’re entering a new era of performance management. Instead of looking back at what employees have done, inspire them with exciting career prospects.

Build an employee value proposition. You can architect compelling paths for your people with Mercer’s Career Frameworks solution, along with our other offerings. Mercer’s research shows that employees are more engaged when they can see a path for growth. In some markets, people value succession planning more than their salary..

Our approach to performance and career management, including our employee-centric Mercer Career View app, takes the long view on careers. And given today’s globally connected world, it is not just executives who need a global mindset—employees at all levels must develop the unique skillset necessary for global leadership success.
