More than 15 years ago McKinsey’s War for Talent focused the need to understand, identify and nurture talent. The ‘war’ shows no signs of abating, with short candidate pools and competition for talent at all levels and in all sectors.

How do organisations grapple with such a complex reality? To understand the ‘what’ and the ’where‘ of talent, organisations need to identify ‘what someone has previously done’ as well as ‘what someone might be able to do in the future.’

Facet5 helps organisations understand what characteristics a person has, and identifies those characteristics that are likely to be shown consistently over time. This information can be used as an integral part of a talent segmentation process, coupled with other processes such as line manager assessment and a career event interviews.
