TALiNT Benchmark Programme 2021
Retail & E-Comms
The transformation in the retail sector was already in progress before the onset of Covid-19, but now has accelerated to radically alter the fortunes of both high street and on-line brands. For some sales figures are through the roof, for others they have dropped through the floor.
This radical shift is impacting candidate attitudes towards the industry. Displaced retail talent is heading to those who have thrived during the pandemic, whilst applications from other sectors have fallen for skilled roles. At one end, organisations are trying to sift high volumes at speed, at the other they are looking at the development of internal talent to build the skills needed.
In 2021 it will be vital for retail organisations to review their talent acquisition, to understand strengths or challenges, and how they compare with on and off-line competitors.
The TALiNT Partners Benchmark tool takes you through a rigorous review of the core elements of your TA strategy from planning to delivery and evaluation. As part of our TALiNT Advantage Programme, participants can use their Benchmark results to assess the maturity of your talent solution and identify priorities for continuous improvement projects to meet the needs of your stakeholders.
The Advantage Programme
Over the last twelve months we have engaged with a wide range of different organisations to understand how we can deliver a tailored, targeted and on-demand additional resource for tasks and small projects which are often time sensitive and business critical and require additional resource.
The Benchmark review explores 11 core area of talent acquisition.

“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.”
