The Impact of Omni-Channel Retailing on the Supply Chain

Our networking events are proving very popular and at the October Dorchester Breakfast speakers included Neil Ashworth, CEO of Collect+ and Chair of the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport, and Mark Hewitt, former CEO of iForce.  With a seven minute slot to deliver his talk, Neil Ashworth shared his insights on the “empowered connected consumer” and the significant implications for companies and their supply chains.  Whilst Mark illustrated very clearly how supply chains are delivering on the customer experience, as in our new Omni-channel world it is supply chains which “have to be able to deliver on the proposition and the promise”  With their permission, we include links to transcripts of their most informative talks.

Talent Mapping

As the economic revival gathers pace, we are seeing some of the best and most talented people rainsing their heads and looking around at career opportunities for the first time in eighteen months. As they do this, they will be selective and cautious in how they engage with the market. Their focus will be on what is right for their career and the recession has led many to put more emphasis on culture than ever before.

Why Talent Mapping?

Some of our clients are choosing to anticipate this by engaging with us to help in talent mapping.

Talent mapping has always been a great way of creating a "bench" of high calibre individuals who are probably not looking to move immediately but become part of a readily accessed pool of talent when a company may need to draw on it.

At its core this is of course simply about looking at key business roles where the company may have a requirement in the short/medium term. We help to identify where the best talent is and we reach out to have a conversation.

The methodology

Our discussions revolve around the individual, their career aspirations and the type of business they may be interested in.

We don't seek to sell a role but rather to raise the profile of our client, sharing information about them as a prospective future "home".

We then look to maintain contact over time with these key individuals, waiting for the time when our client's need is urgent and/or the targeted individuals show signs of looking for a move.


Now more than ever...

Why talent mapping can be so much more effective now is because great people simply do not want to be spending time constantly fielding recruiters' calls about jobs; they want to know that their needs are understood and that they are engaged with one or two businesses whose values and ambitions may match their own at some point.

Our clients see this as something of real value, building their brand as a potential employer and making it more likely that they can get critical talent quickly when they need it.
