Global Talent Mapping and Recruitment

So what if your talent pool is not precisely in your back yard and you need to move out of your comfort zone? In 2020 many of the Western Economies will have a major shortage of talented people and by 2030 there will be more jobs than people to do them.

Talent Mapping is a strategic process where we identify and map individuals in relevant industries and companies according to their skills, capabilities and competences. We then provide our clients, through our Talent Tracker, a real time global succession pipeline and talent benchmark for the aviation industry.

Global Talent Mapping

We developed an entirely new way to locate and identify globally talent. We start by locating the talent in the world – in which country, city, area, cluster or hub they are located. We also identify which university, with what employer or in which community are they located? After that we identify the talent pool. We identify the approximate size and quality of the talent pool and the extent of the willingness to move in relation to the attractiveness of the country/sector of the future employer. Only in the final stage do we create a possible hiring strategy. Every talent pool has its own search strategy, media channels, attraction strategy, motivations, and relocation factors.

We provide you with a comprehensive overview of successful executives in the aviation industry that currently execute specific roles and responsibilities and are willing to be your partner for your (future) challenges. Even though we can deliver a standard mapping in 3 to 4 weeks, many of the executives involved are not hirable; however, they certainly are ready to partner with you, share their best practices and possibly be willing to discuss a mid to long term commitment. You will also be able to engage talent, yet not ready for a role within your company, but that could maximize their experienceand be a suitable fit in time. You are able to see who could fill your future resourcing needs, particularly important when expansion is needed, technology is rapidly changing your needs, or you want to build your business in new, niche markets. Talent mapping comes in very useful when you need to drive new strategies such as centralizing, decentralizing, or for diversity purposes.

Based on your input, we can gather specific information you need, such as average remuneration in your industry, competitor employee maps, organization charts, or the requirements for market intelligence you define.
