How we helped a global defence organisation identify new industries for talent acquisition
The client problem
The business had a clear view of their internal talent pool, a good talent management strategy, a great early careers programme, good leadership development and good visibility of the gaps in their talent pool. An ageing workforce and long-term contracts meant that the client had real gaps in their senior engineering talent pool to fulfil existing contracts.
Using Stratigens™ we identified the total pool for senior engineering talent (10 – 15 years’ experience) in the UK, split by specific skills type including chemical engineers, structural engineers, radar engineers etc. A total of 39 specific skills were identified and analysed across the total engineering pool in the UK. To complement this, our data science team was able to identify previous and current industries, previous and current companies and the universities from which this talent had graduated.
