Why it matters?

  • A robust talent & succession process and plan is a key component of high-performing companies. For it to be fully effective, the senior team must be fully engaged in it.
  • HR and Talent data is often scattered across a variety of hard to navigate systems, tools and spreadsheets which means not only do senior leaders not access it regularly but it is also a lot of work for HR professionals to get ready for an annual talent conversation.
  • Our app means the latest data is always available, in one place and at the touch of a button on your mobile device. Pulse TALENT makes talent conversations become a part of everyday life.

Today Pulse TALENT helps the senior executives of our FTSE10 client take control of their top team data and act on critical succession planning gaps.

Key decision makers now have an up to date view of their teams all year round, spotting succession gaps early and raising the profiles of their next generation of leaders.

Pulse TALENT takes the complexity out of annual talent review meeting cycles, reducing the workload on Talent & HR teams to manipulate and present large quantities of data. Discussions move from the large paper documents of yesterday and digitised by our app.

Following use by their c-suite, the decision was quickly taken to deploy Pulse TALENT to the top 100 leaders globally and plug into their core HR systems for nightly updates. Digitised succession planning and talent data at their fingertips.

HR is now leading the pack in the digital transformation agenda, from the very top of the company.
