Talent Philosophy
This powerful process creates the foundation for
successful talent management.
What’s Your Talent Philosophy?

In few companies has the senior team agreed on the “best way” to manage talent to achieve the strategy. When every executive manages to their personal preferences, performance suffers and bias blooms.

What we do?

A talent philosophy is the foundation for every talent practice in your organization. It details your executive team’s point of view on performance, behaviors, accountability, transparency, and differentiation. That clear point of view means that managers can easily explain the outcomes of talent processes and employees know that talent decisions are made using a consistently and equitably applied approach.

The process typically includes interviews and a survey for the executive team, analysis of that data, preparatory work with HR and presentation to your executive team.


A talent philosophy provides guidance and support for the design of every talent practice and helps ensure consistent execution.

Your executive team becomes vocal sponsors of the HR and talent agenda because it reflects their beliefs and passions.

A talent philosophy helps to defeat bias by making explicit the “rules” of success in your organization and empowering employees to hold leaders accountable.
