The survey challenges you to consider parts of your process and strategy which you may not have considered in need of review and benefits us in ratifying our strategy, highlighting what is working well, and amplifying the need for change.

“This is a great temperature check for benchmarking resourcing activities against peers in the public sector. I have found this really useful to support business cases when you require further investment on staff or resources. It shows where improvements are most needed to drive performance.”

Ben Gledhill, Interim Head of Resourcing Transformation, Anglian Water

“I like the style of the questions; they are pitched at the right level, but the assessment is simple to use. The metrics are valid and overall I think it’s a refreshing change.”

Craig Morgans, Head of Talent Acquisition, HR Shared Services, Learning & Development, AA

“The assessments were straight forward and certainly made me think! There’s obviously some areas which we’re very good at, but by completing the assessment it’s already clarified we still have some areas for development – both as a team and an organisation.”

Jeff Uden, Head of Talent, Iceland

“TALiNT Partners’ Benchmark Programme has been an important tool in prioritising our TA strategy. The range and depth of the questions helps create quality debate and discussion within the team. Its facility to now help me understand how we compare to other organisations within our sector makes it even more valuable.”
