TALiNT Benchmark Programme


All submissions are held confidentially. Individual organisations will only be able to see their own scores but will be able to understand how they perform across a range of key measures benchmarked against other aggregated submission data.

Your data will be consolidated into all the returns to provide anonymous benchmarking data. This anonymous data will be shared with all entrants. All individual company data will be strictly confidential. We may ask to share some examples of outstanding best practice but permission for this will be explicitly sought. TALiNT Partners will comply with all GDPR legislation.

As part of each organisation’s on-boarding process, we emphasise the value of providing objective responses to ensure accuracy. There is no benefit to scoring too positively (or negatively). The more honest the self-appraisal the more valuable will be the comparative data in the benchmarking process.

We have benchmark data from over 80 organisations from the 2018 programme. For 2019 we are anticipating this will grow to between 400-500 participating organisations.

The benchmarking assessment process is open to any organisation with a talent acquisition or in-house recruitment function, or smaller organisations/business units where recruitment may be run as part of a generalist HR function. 

In 2018 we had a range of private, public and third sector organisations participate in the benchmark programme. These included Citi Group, UBS, the AA, Iceland Foods, Café Nero, Erickson, Linklaters, Clifford Chance, Mercedes, VSO and North Yorkshire Police Force

Yes, as long as you specify what part of the organisation your answers reflect.

There are twelve categories you can enter where we can use data to provide feedback and a benchmark report. You can enter as many or as few as you wish although if you do not enter all of the categories you will not be able to get a meaningful overall benchmark score.

The basic programme is free to enter. The premium programme costs £495 + VAT and the production of a bespoke, report prepared for your individual organisation costs a further £500+VAT.

No, you can save your entry as you go along and return to complete it. You can make any changes up to the point you press the submit button.

Yes, we would actively encourage this. It is important that your answers reflect as much as possible the practices that are going on across the organisation you are describing. Getting input from colleagues, other employees and different departments will help build a complete picture.

The premium version of the programme allows you to invite colleagues from across you organisation to complete some or all of the programme and then provides an average of your scores to be submitted for the overall benchmark
