How CER transforms the resourcing model

  • We are research and intelligence led - we look for who is best in class.
  • We build an accurate picture of the resourcing environment in which our clients are operating.
  • We can provide information to our clients in advance of a decision on whether to recruit, as to the likelihood of success and whether the talent on the outside of the organisation is better than the talent on the inside.
  • We can create banks of candidates for regularly recruited roles or to aid succession planning for critical appointments.
  • The process is transparent and flexible – the client remains in control.
  • Our aim is to become a valued adviser to the client – this is not a transactional model. We aim to be with clients for the long term and will appoint a Relationship Director who will develop a deep understanding of the business and its drivers .
  • The resourcing decisions that our clients make will be well informed.

Market Insight

The provision of effective market insight is key to gaining an advantage over competitors in the war for talent. Whilst market intelligence will provide the facts; it is the ability to interpret this and provide true insight that is the real key to success. CER is able to identify how competitors operate, assess how effective their model is, and provide information and insight that will allow you to refine your own business structure and staffing requirements. Our clients ask us to conduct market insight projects because they are seeking to:

  • Understand how their competitors are structured and how the reporting lines work-often in advance of an re-organisation
  • Identify key individuals and assess their propensity for a move
  • Gain an appreciation of remuneration levels and benefits packages - either in a direct competitor or across the industry sector
  • Build an understanding of their employer brand
  • Develop an understanding as to how other companies are gaining an advantage by embracing diversity

Every insight project is designed around a very specific requirement and an understanding by CER as to why the information is required. We appreciate how the client would like the information to be presented and we offer a formal report supported by an informal briefing. You will be provided with both an executive summary as well as a full analysis as to our findings.
