Talent Advisory: Assessments & Market Mapping

Navigating Leadership Excellence

At Pender & Howe, our Talent Advisory division is your partner in navigating the ever-evolving landscape of leadership excellence. Within this dynamic sector, we offer a range of services designed to empower your organization's leadership journey. From in-depth market mapping to comprehensive personality assessments, we provide the insights and tools necessary to thrive in today's competitive business environment. Our two main offerings are Market Mapping and Personality Assessments.

Market Mapping: A Strategic Advantage

Our Market Mapping service offers a strategic advantage in understanding the talent landscape within your industry, specific talent groups, or niche skill sets before launching a formal search. We leverage extensive data to provide a comprehensive view of industry trends, enabling you to make informed evaluations and gain valuable insights into your competitors leadership teams. This meticulous process follows these traditional steps:

  1. Begins with an initial discovery meeting, allowing us to tailor our approach to your precise needs. 
  2. Within 14 business days, we deliver a thorough Market Mapping report for your review. 
  3. During this process, we engage in discussions about potential candidates and market intelligence, offering you the opportunity to adjust qualification scopes. 

Market Mapping is not just a tool for immediate recruitment; it's a strategic resource for building talent pipelines, creating org charts, setting internal benchmarks, and enhancing succession planning. 

Advisory & Assessments: Uncover Leadership Potential

Our personality assessments offer a complete view of executive strengths and potential. We can conduct specific projects to test values and competencies for a particular position, ensuring that the data is measured against a customized list of requirements or qualifications. Similarly, we can take a generalist approach to create a team "benchmark." We employ a comprehensive approach, utilizing multiple methods to evaluate an individual's ability to perform, fit, and make a lasting impact in a critical leadership role.

Our assessment results can support the identification of competency gaps within current leadership teams, benchmarking a short-list of considerations in an executive search, or simply setting an entire company "benchmark" to use for any future hires to measure their values and competencies against. Additionally, this can serve as an interview guideline to raise awareness of potential concerns and suggest appropriate interview questions to delve deeper into those concerns.
