The TALiNT Benchmark Assessment Programme (formerly the Good Recruitment Benchmark) will enable organisations to effectively benchmark their performance against peers in a rigorous, objective and confidential way.

The TALiNT Benchmark Assessment has already become the yardstick for organisations working towards improving talent acquisition performance and provides an insightful “health check” of the overall internal recruitment function.

The programme uses a ‘maturity model’ to enable effective objective comparisons.

In a talent scarce world, industry benchmarks are the most insightful markers. They show not only how you compare but where you can improve.

All submissions are confidential, although individual organisations will be able to understand how they perform across a range of key measures when compared to their peers. The information will be consolidated into all the returns to provide anonymous benchmarking data. This will then be shared with all entrants to the benchmarking process.

All individual company data will be strictly confidential. We may ask to share some examples of outstanding best practice but at TALinT we seek explicit permission for this.

To share the findings from the benchmark programme, highlight a number of the key challenges organisations face and recognise best practice we are also hosting the second talint benchmark summit on the 14th november in london.

The summit event will share best practice and celebrate excellence in talent acquisition and effective recruitment. these examples will be based on values of fairness, inclusivity and openness
