Using a combination of bespoke research, continuous horizon scanning and input from our network of academic and industry experts, we help our clients answer critical talent questions, including:

  • What talent will we need tomorrow and where do we find it?
  • What are the leading trends in human resource management?
  • How do we develop our differentiating strategic capabilities (DiSCs) in the future?
  • How do we utilise new techniques and technologies to get the best from our talent?

Our global experts have deep insights into issues such as talent supply and demand, technology and skill trends, labour market economic dynamics, engagement and well-being and many others in a wide range of industries and geographies.

Mobilisation Support

Entering new markets presents great opportunities, but it also brings complexity and risk. With hands-on experience in a variety of global markets, OSC first helps clients understand the social, cultural, economic and political landscape of a given market. Then we work with clients to develop detailed mobilisation and start-up plans.
