Leadership & Talent Management

Creating winning leaders and building resilient people strategies for the future of work

Businesses go through all sorts of changes during their lifetime, whether it’s a new CEO or management team, a merger or an acquisition, or implementation of a new strategy. Good leadership is essential during these times of transition, but also when it’s just business as usual. Leadership as an organisational capability is essential to driving business strategy, implementing change and cultivating innovation within the organisation. Underperforming leaders can negatively affect the quality of business decisions, decrease trust in a business and create low employee engagement.

A clear, measurable and executable people strategy is also quickly becoming a key differentiator in this fast paced digital age. The shift requires a rethink of leadership and people strategies to deliver on strategic intent. It also requires an improved alignment of internal capabilities and people infrastructure to achieve competitive advantage in facing the challenges of tomorrow.

Is there a lack of clarity on the alignment of business objectives and HR priorities? Do you need to rethink your HR functional structures, capabilities and role designs to enable a shift in focus to more strategic, high-value activities? People expect HR operations to provide the same user‑friendly experience they have become accustomed to in other areas of their lives - is your organisation delivering? And do you need to optimise costs across the HR function?

Do your current people strategy and plans need rethinking and realignment to keep pace with your business strategies and business innovation? Do you understand the significant talent and skills challenges in your environment? And are you adapting to new ways of working with the right flexibility and agility?

How we can help you

Agility is key to addressing today's business needs and those of tomorrow. We help clients make the connection between their business strategy and both people activities and leadership initiatives needed to deliver it, through a framework that maps strategy into all aspects of the employee lifecycle.

People Strategy

We help you understand your organisation, people, culture and leadership. We break down business strategy to understand its implications on people and we use diagnostic tools to assess the current people and organisational landscape and required capabilities to identify value and constraints. From the organisational landscape, we co-create and implement your unique people strategy to account for the changing talent mix. We work with you on scenario planning to consider the impact of multiple and evolving visions of the future. We also help you create people analytics to measure real-time data and generate insights for continuous improvement.

Competency Management

We help you build customised competency frameworks and assessments with defined targets. Or, you can draw on our comprehensive assessment library, with a range of instruments that measure skills and abilities; behavioural and personality profiles; culture, job, and career fit; leadership; and performance against predefined indicators. These assessments will help you understand and manage your organisation's talents and their skills better.

This reflects our broader mission: helping our clients make fact-based human capital decisions. From surveys and benchmarking, to predictive services and people analytics strategies, we help our clients use data more effectively to create meaningful change for employees, teams, and entire organisations.

Reward and Benefits

We help clients using our combined technical capabilities, market intelligence and analytics in addressing a broad range of emerging reward and benefits issues. We work with organisations to make their programmes more effective using our four-step approach.

Employee Engagement

We help clients drive business goals by creating an engaging and empowered workforce using our PwC Employee Engagement Model to measure levels of employee engagement and establish linkages to key performance drivers. The engagement tool is flexible and is designed in the context of the business strategy. It looks at what the organisation is trying to achieve and is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. These insights will enable us to co-design engagement programmes with you to create a differentiated work experience for employees.
