Talent and Future Workforce

Talent and future workforce

In today’s environment, there is a demand for highly-skilled people, and the competition to attract and retain top talent is becoming a harder battle to fight. Organisations face a challenge retaining their top talent due to a shift in priorities as employees are looking for a more comprehensive employee experience and employee value proposition, prompting them to explore other career opportunities.


As a result, companies are now exploring new talent pools to find candidates that they can nurture and develop and taking time to strengthen their Talent Management Approach and Employee Value Proposition to attract, develop and retain top talent.

Talent and organisational health

We ensure that all of the foundations that underpin organisational health are in place, healthy and are enabling your organisation to be high-performing.


To understand how a business is performing, we believe that the health of an organisation should be considered in its entirety – from the strategy to the process and everything in between. This ensures the right interventions can be made to produce the outcomes the business desires.

The organisation’s Talent Strategy and Strategic Workforce Plan must support the business strategy to ensure that the workforce has the skills and capability to deliver on strategic goals.


Talent Management is about attracting, retaining and developing the best talent. It’s important to make sure the right people are in the right roles with the right skills to deliver the Strategy, Op Model, or drive a Transformation.


Line Managers are the spearheads of Transformation, Change and Employee Experience. It’s important to make sure that they are supported and have the capability to succeed in their role.

Strategic workforce planning

A strategic workforce plan (SWP) is a structured way to identify the critical skills needed to ensure an organisation has the right capabilities in the right roles, in the right numbers at the right time to deliver their strategy.

At Q5, we can help you develop a strategic workforce plan that analyses and forecasts the talent and roles that your organisation needs to deliver current and future strategic goals and objectives. It enables you to identify the key capabilities you need to deliver your business strategy and define what this means in terms of recruitment, development, talent and performance management priorities. ​​

When implemented well, SWP enables businesses and organisations to operate at a more strategic and future focussed level – being able to leverage talent more effectively to work in a more robust and agile way and put capability in place proactively, rather than being forced to respond reactively.
