Future Skills

Whether it’s Brexit, the onset of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, changing work patterns or simply staying ahead of the competition, the challenges that businesses face are never-ending. This constant state of flux makes developing a resource strategy an almost impossible task.

We have years of experience researching and advising on international labour markets, industrial and education policy, and talent strategy development.

Labour Market Intelligence

Our Labour Market Intelligence expertise will ensure you gain a strategic advantage, by optimising talent investments, securing future pipelines and supporting location-based investment screening.
We provide detailed data on skills availability, labour market dynamics, IP creation business and education environments. We also deliver detailed, comparative analysis of international labour markets, political economies and talent investment.

Employee Happiness and Engagement

The importance of employee engagement is nothing new, but some organisations struggle to establish, maintain and measure engagement and happiness.

We’ve been helped a number of our clients develop better employee engagement by establishing an Active State of Happiness (ACE).
