Strategy & Communications Advisory

Talent Advisory

Proactively ensuring business strategy is aligned with talent strategy.

CEOs and Boards have never had a narrower window to achieve strategic alignment. In the face of rapid innovation, a highly-competitive landscape, a contentious activist climate and increased scrutiny on boards and company executives, proactively ensuring business strategy is aligned with talent strategy – and that the right team is in place to bring that strategy to life – creates value in the face of relentless short-term pressures.

Teneo’s talent advisory experts help clients:

  • connect business strategy to talent strategy;
  • unlock business value; demonstrate good governance;
  • and effectively develop, retain and recruit high-performers.
