“The Talent Lab process has been invaluable in providing clarity around defined benchmarks and standards. Observing skills and behaviours throughout the development centres has provided fairness, consistency and integrity in the assessment and feedback. This process has helped us to form rich and compelling data, around which a number of relevant learning and development interventions (in varying forms) will be designed and delivered.”
Mike England, President EMEA RS Components
How do Talent Labs work?
Will a Talent Lab work for my organisation?
Talent Labs are for any organisation that is looking to improve results through their people. They are particularly useful for businesses that are:
- Going through turnaround or transformation
- Looking to improve department performance
- Looking to increase operational efficiency
- Looking to acquire a business and need to identify a team to run it
- Looking to launch a project and need to identify the right people for it
Talent Labs: Benchmark, Engage, Improve
Talent Labs are outsourced and are, therefore, completely objective and without bias; this is often difficult to achieve if such diagnostic activity is undertaken in-house. Delegates benefit from going on a journey of self-awareness and positive learning, as opposed to their manager telling them they are not up to scratch.
By using Talent Labs, teams or entire businesses share a common understanding of how self-improvement can lead to overall improvement. This shift in mind-set leads to much better engagement and return on investment for recruitment and development budgets.
