Executive Research

Our Executive Research service supports businesses that need to identify key talent issues impacting upon their business. Some of the questions clients come to us with include:

“Who are the key players within our competitors?

“How are our competitors structured and can we use this information to build a competitive advantage?”

“Who are the key people in areas where we are looking to launch a new product or service?”

“How do we aid our succession planning by building a pipeline of external talent?”

“How much do we need to pay our people to remain competitive and keep our competitors from poaching our most talented individuals?”

How we add value

Executive Research is at the core of everything we do, and every individual within our business is trained in the latest research methodologies. Our experience spans different industries and our people possess a profound knowledge of the industry sectors we support.

Our specialist consultants work with you to identify your Executive Research needs and then conduct bespoke fresh research to produce critical intelligence.

The four main categories of research we provide are:

Talent Mapping – We identify industry specific talent for senior, specialist or hard-to-fill roles throughout the UK, EMEA, the US and Asia Pacific, constantly matching the skills of the people we identify to clients’ requirements.

Talent Pipelining – We are increasingly asked to develop a talent pipeline of key individuals for the future to improve candidate quality and reduce time taken when conducting future searches. This works well for companies with expansion or relocation plans or may be utilised for succession planning.

Competitor Analysis – We gain insight on competitors, key individuals, reporting lines and benefits to assess your competitors and gain a deeper understanding of how they are structured. This also provides information that can be used for Talent Pipelining.

Salary Benchmarking – Compensation is one of the top indicators of job satisfaction. Knowing how competitive your salaries are can be critical for employee recruitment and retention. Our benchmarking services allow you to research specific roles giving you key insight into your position in comparison to the rest of the market. They can also be used to gain insight into salary rates in a geographical area for businesses expanding or opening a new office and relocating key people.
