Our runaway success this year was our Awareness Days but as that did well in Google and went far wider than the HR industry we’ll focus here on the content we made for YOU. 

  1. HR Strategy Whitepaper
    Find out the Let’s Talk Talent process for putting together a HR strategy. Whether you have been asked to write a new HR strategy or update your current one this whitepaper will help you on your way to a strategy one-pager.
  2. Succession Planning Whitepaper
    Do you have the right people, with the right skills, doing the right things? Do you have more of those people on the bench? If you’re wondering what you can do to your business for the future. Then download our Succession Planning whitepaper to find out how you can do more.
  3. Onboarding Checklist  
    Your biggest investment is your people. So make the most of it when they join your organisation. Here’s our onboarding checklist to make the biggest impact you can.
  4. Competency Framework Whitepaper 
    Competency Frameworks are no longer the dusty things that live on shelves never being used until annual performance reviews. With a modern approach to competency frameworks, with a joined up approach we think you can improve career pathways, performance conversations and just about everything else.
  5. Performance Management Whitepaper 
    Is your performance management process an annual or only a formal process? Read our performance management whitepaper where we outline a new and modern approach to performance conversations.
  6. Learning & Development Strategy Whitepaper 
    Ever wondered about what should go into a winning L&D strategy? Download our L&D strategy whitepaper which outlines your recipe for success.
  7. The Ultimate list of HR metrics  
    We collated over 100 metrics and KPIs that you can measure as a HR professional. Whilst we don’t recommend you report to the board on them all – it’s good to be aware of what you can measure, and what impact you can show to the business.
  8. Career Pathways Examples & Our Career Mapping Process 
    This is one of our favourite documents. It showcases our approach to career pathways, and how we see that they should be joined up to competency frameworks. Not only that, we showcase what some of the outputs could look like in our branding and offer a case study into how career pathways have helped one of our clients.
  9. EVP Playbook  
    An EVP playbook which is based on our paid EVP Toolkit. Several of our clients truly value the paid version with additional consultancy. However if you’re just getting started and need some pointers the EVP playbook is a fantastic place to star.
  10. Career Planning Whitepaper
    One of our first whitepapers. How do you enable your people to empower their own careers? We too often as HRs end up focussing on what the organisation can do, or how to upskill our managers to have better career conversations (all important) but also think about how to support, encourage and empower your people to develop themselves.
