Leading to Change in Your Organization
Whatever your business, wherever you are in the world, talent is core to business success. A strategy that sees talent as a business imperative requires asking the right questions, testing assumptions, and understanding the impact of talent decisions on your business.
Bridging our research and consulting insights, Vital Signs is a unique approach to strengthening and diversifying your talent pipeline. It offers tools, customizable spreadsheets and compelling visuals, quick exercises, webinars, workshops, and more that get you asking the right questions about your talent. This approach makes a difference that leads to measurable change for women—and better business results overall.
Making it Easy to Get to Insight: The Vital Signs Toolkit
Many organizations feel like they are drowning in data, with lots of reports but no meaningful picture of what’s going on with talent and why. Other organizations are unsure of what to pay attention to or where to start. We’ve designed Vital Signs for both groups. The Vital Signs toolkit includes seven valuable step-by-step tools that give you a deeper understanding of your talent and help you determine where to take action.
Need advice on where or how to start? See our “Navigation Map,” based off common member challenges, and the Guide to Telling Your Story With Data, which summarizes insights available in the tools and steps to take with data. Webinars and events provide a deep dive into the content, and workshops bring the content to life in your organization.
This two-minute video shows you one way to put your data together to identify gaps more easily and for impact with stakeholders.
