Where we can help
Your results are what matters. We partner with you to continually evolve and optimize to reflect changing markets. We help our clients in the consumer markets industry address challenges like these:
Building effective talent acquisition and talent management strategies
No matter where you are in your organization’s growth cycle, the ability to attract, develop and retain the best people is critical to your long-term success. The leaders of tomorrow’s consumer organizations will be smart forward-thinkers who guide multicultural, multigenerational teams built on agility, flexibility and innovation.
Our consumer markets consultants work collaboratively with your business to create strategies that identify and develop internal and external talent. In doing so, we build dynamic, experienced, future-ready leadership teams that drive creativity, innovate growth and improve efficiencies. We also work with you to incorporate diversity and inclusion into your talent acquisition, management and succession strategies.
Accelerating digital transformation
In the past, it might have taken years to create a new consumer product. Today, technology-fueled innovations arrive in a matter of months, shrinking the time to market. Navigating today’s market and competitive forces requires consumer markets organizations to be as technologically advanced as businesses in any other industry. That demands leaders and talent with the skills to excel in the digital world, including learning agility, connectivity and adaptability.
We help your company recruit new talent as well as reskill and upskill your current talent with the right cross-functional skills to excel both now and into the future. We know what the new future of work requires and we will help you develop a talent profile that defines the skills and core capabilities your people will need to succeed. We work with you to design structures and job definitions focused on digital transformation and geared toward key competencies such as agility, connectivity, discipline and focus, empowerment and alignment, and openness and transparency. Then, we help you identify and assess candidates who match your ideal profile so you can achieve your goals. Our solutions will allow you to put the right people in the right place, so your organization is not only ready for new opportunities—it’s also the one innovating them.
Realigning organizational structure
When markets turn volatile and consumer demand surges or wanes, many consumer markets organizations start to consider structural changes. If you are undergoing a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or other structural realignment, you also need to evaluate your shifting workforce needs. You have to assess not only whether you have the talent you need to manage current disruptions but also whether you have a workable and affordable talent and organizational strategy that will optimize costs and allow you to flex into the future.
Our organizational consultants have decades of experience in helping consumer markets organizations deliver sustainable strategies that ensure business agility and continuity—enabling them to weather any crisis. We help you evaluate cost-cutting tactics, such as organizational restructuring, outsourcing and right-sizing. We also work with you to develop talent and engagement strategies that raise productivity and efficiency, improving your organization’s stability.
