<----> <----> Identifying & Retaining Top Talent - Saville Assessment

Identifying & Retaining
Top Talent

The Recruitment & Employment Confederation reported overall vacancy levels are increasing at the fastest rate for 23 years. This is against the backdrop of an active labor market where 41% of the global workforce are considering leaving their job.*   

These statistics suggest an opportunity to capitalize on a new wave of talent in the market but a Willis Towers Watson Survey highlighted that organizations are predicting difficulties in attracting and retaining talent. 


In this series of webinars, we will spotlight different approaches that organizations are taking across their talent practices in order to boost the critical metric of employee retention.

Thursday 11th November 2021 11.10am-11.45am GMT

*The start time for this webinar is 10 minutes past the hour to allow for the Remembrance Day Silence. 

Presenters: Gemma Harding, Managing Consultant at Saville Assessment and Daphne van der Wielen, Managing Consultant at Saville Assessment

41% of current employees will leave their job in the next 3-6 months (Microsoft) and 36% of recent job leavers did so without a new job in hand (McKinsey). This is fueling many conversations about ‘The Great Resignation’, but with a new Wave of talent in the market this also creates opportunities for ‘The Great Hire’.

In this session, Daphne and Gemma will share:

  • Employee Experience survey data illustrating what is pulling talent in and what is pushing it out
  • How a multinational manufacturing company has delivered an integrated talent strategy to recruit and retain top talent
  • How a Global Insurance company transformed their hiring process and improved their talent acquisition metrics
  • Key considerations for how your talent acquisition activity can reduce the risk of selection errors and improve talent retention

Thursday 18th November & Thursday 2nd December 11.00-11.45am GMT

Presenter: Hannah Mullaney, Managing Consultant at Saville Assessment

Leaders have a critical role in creating an organization where people want to work, develop and stay to build a fulfilling career. Moving forward, McKinsey has commented that “Smart leaders aren’t thinking about the next phase or a return to what we had before but are taking the opportunity to reimagine the organization”.

In these sessions, Hannah will bring a wealth of experience from working with clients on leadership development and share insight on 4 key areas:

Part 1 – 18th November

  • The value of empathy
  • The value of impact

Part 2 – 2nd December

  • Leading through uncertainty
  • Creating a High-Performance Employee Experience

Wednesday 24th November 12.00-12.45pm GMT

Presenters: Matt Staley, Director of Talent at Ricoh & Martin Kavanagh, Managing Consultant at Saville Assessment

Ricoh have successfully combined organizational growth and talent retention by looking to their internal talent pool. Their Scala Digital Talent Program won Best Internal Recruitment Strategy at The Firm Awards, identifying and redeploying talent from the traditional print arm of the business to the growing area of digital services.

Scala develops digital talent with a 9-month program, blending modular learning and hands-on experience.

In this session, Matt and Martin share how we collaborated on this exciting project to:

  • Identify individuals who would thrive on the program
  • Deliver a program that demonstrated a commitment to internal talent who have been integral in Ricoh’s success whilst also meeting very specific needs of the organization
  • Place individuals into new roles and create internal pipelines for succession
  • Deliver digital transformation
