Shopping for Talent — Building Talent Marketplaces

by KPMG | Employee Benefits

In today’s fast-paced business landscape, where technology and skills shortages dominate, the traditional approach of matching people to jobs is no longer sufficient. At KPMG, we have recognised the need for a different approach, one that is centered around building Talent Marketplaces.

While building a Talent Marketplace is not an overnight process, there are key steps to consider. Adopting a skills-first approach, utilising data and analytics, and fostering a culture of talent sharing through pilot programs are essential elements for success.

Why Choose Talent Marketplaces:

  1. Skills-First Approach: Shift from the traditional “people to jobs” paradigm to a skills-first approach, aligning your workforce capabilities with current and future organisational needs.
  2. Data-Driven Insights: Leverage comprehensive datasets to identify and understand the unique capabilities of your workforce, enabling targeted skills matching across your organisation.
  3. Cultivate a Promising Future: Empower employees with diverse career path opportunities and access to alternative learning paths, fostering engagement and retention.
