HR Management Consulting firm The Talent Company releases HR Pulse study results

Markham, Ontario, Canada – May 15, 2013 – The Talent Company, a management consulting firm specializing in human resources solutions recently concluded the HR Pulse study.  The study was designed to help leading business and human resources professionals gain a better, more current view of today’s HR landscape.  For this initiative, The Talent Company partnered with market research consultancy, Innovation Curation (IC!) to help gather insights.

Individuals invited to participate included business executives with experience working closely with employee issues, as well as human resources professionals whose roles are closely related to all aspects of a talent function.

More than 5,000 professionals from around the world were invited to complete a survey. Data collected was analyzed by IC! and the results are available in the form of an infographic that can be found by clicking here.  Customized data segmentation is also available for organizations that are interested in a more in-depth look at the study.

“This was a great experience for us at IC! to be involved in a study where the participants were clearly engaged and passionate about human capital themes, and it was a real pleasure to partner with category experts at The Talent Company”, says Brian Boudreau, Chief Insights Officer with IC!. “The findings really point to a time where we see a lot of optimism and opportunity for optimizing effectiveness of an HR function.”

“As business and HR leaders look for commonality with the people challenges they face, the rich results of this study provides a platform for meaningful dialogue, and how the focus of an HR function should move forward,” says Simon Parkin, Practice Leader, HR and Talent Solutions with The Talent Company. “We are very pleased with the results of HR Pulse and thank the participants for their candor and time”.

This is the first in a series of Pulse studies.  The next, entitled “Pulse on Leadership Development” commences in the fall of 2013.  For an invitation to participate in the next study, please subscribe here.
