cto Now

Our ‘Chief Talent Officer (CTO) Now’ program is a focused, on-demand intervention designed to accelerate your Talent strategy in a meaningful and impactful way!

 

“We can build your Talent strategy in less time than it would take you to do 1st round interviews… and for a fraction of your search fee.”

‘CTO Now’ PROGRAM

In today’s environment, not all organizations have the luxury or resources to have a dedicated and experienced executive running their Talent function.  A fulltime resource can start at $250,000 annually before benefits and tax liability.  Relying on HR Generalists or less experienced staff as an alternative often leads to low impact solutions that only create noise and confusion. 

A BETTER OPTION

Having a successful Talent strategy starts at the beginning: A direct connection between your organizational strategy and the human capital implications in getting there.  Everything that comes after that is designed to support and move the organization towards its goals – without getting in the way of the business. Unfortunately, that’s where it usually breaks down.  Organizations, either directly or through the counsel of well-intentioned 3rdparties, often overcomplicate the strategy.  More dangerous, and equally likely, they develop discrete solutions for things like recruiting, goal setting, performance management, succession, etc that don’t actually connect to one another OR to the organizational strategy.

 

The good news is that, if you design your strategy correctly, the work that follows is logical and extremely intuitive.  You’re connecting the dots in a way that becomes very organic and holistic instead of random and disparate.  Designed correctly, you can execute and maintain the strategy through a strong internal HR team without having an expensive dedicated senior resource on staff. 

Let us help you design a strategy that works, create a roadmap for implementation, and prepare your team for successful ongoing execution — that you own!

The ‘CTO Now’ program gets you up and running without a long-term investment.  Your program will be driven through a seasoned Talent executive who will partner, assess, educate, and inspire.  Our CTO’s have decades of experience in multiple complex environments. We know what works and what doesn’t.  We bring a point of view that is incredibly pragmatic and business oriented and won’t feel like a force fit of cliched HR iconography. 

On Demand vs Embedded?

The other hard truth is that Talent Management tends to be more efficient when approached as an on-demand function.  The reality is that most organizations have spikes in their Talent needs at very specific and predictable points in time. The core work is very cyclical.  The heavy lifting often happens at the front end as you develop your strategy or as you look to solve specific challenges like building a succession strategy and strong bench of future leaders. The work that happens throughout the year is often a combination of execution and transactional tasks.  This means your expensive, dedicated Talent resource is often working under capacity for much of the time.  How do you want to use YOUR Talent budget?
