The pandemic has transformed the way we work. It has also challenged many companies when it comes to retaining staff. Your organization needs a talent management strategy that can help you make the most of this new evolving, and increasingly global workforce.
Looking beyond jobs to skills can revolutionise your workforce planning. Mercer can help with reskilling/upskilling, performance management, your internal talent marketplace, succession planning, pay and talent acquisition.
With transformation an everyday reality, the opportunities around skills-based talent practices are unprecedented. Without accelerating progress on their skills agenda, organisations won’t have the talent to take advantage of emerging talent. Leading companies are re-inventing their talent and reward programs around skills and Mercer can show you how.
Reinventing skills-based talent management
How Mercer’s skills-based talent
Strategic workforce planningWe can help you audit your internal and external supply of talent and use our skills research data to provide enhanced insights and redefine your talent and skills pools where necessary.
ReskillingWe can help you conduct rapid reskilling, targeted by robust assessment capability, without laborious current state analysis.
Skills assessmentMeasure skills and capabilities objectively for talent acquisition, development, succession or a broader people strategy, based on your skill framework.
Pay-for-skillsInvest in future skills and reinvent pay programs with AI-driven pay decisions based on skill demand, supply and criticality.
Performance managementKnow that agile environments require rapid, multi-sourced performance feedback and assessment, so skill proficiency and development activities are even more critical.
Career development/pathingEnable employees’ ownership of their careers through skill mapping and adjacencies, which shine a light on actionable career paths.
Succession planningEnsure succession pools are informed by individual skills to expand potential talent pipelines and avoid job structures that may limit diversity.
Internal talent marketplaceDeploy talent to gigs, projects, experiences based on skills supply and demand, promoting internal mobility and diversity of thinking and experiences across the organisation.
