FASTNET – THE TALENT GROUP LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE TALENT MANAGEMENT SERVICE FOR BUSINESS
Fastnet – The Talent Group has launched a new division to exclusively service the critical role of talent management within multinational and indigenous companies in Ireland. The establishment of the division is a response to the ever-increasing challenge for companies not just to attract, but to keep valued employees.
Speaking at the launch, newly appointed Director of Talent & Transformation at Fastnet – The Talent Group, Dave Barry said:
“Ensuring that employees are hired, managed, developed, engaged and retained in the best possible ways will have positive knock-on impacts for every aspect of the business including performance, productivity and ultimately, profitability. We have established the Talent & Transformation division to partner with companies so that they can perform better and are more successful in the future.”
Talent & Transformation is a relatively new concept in Ireland, but is already having significant impact in the UK and USA. According to McKinsey and CIPD 2016, a one-point shift in the quality of management practices had the same impact on productivity as a 25% increase in labour employed and a 65% increase in capital investment.
Utilising an innovative organizational Lean Six Sigma approach, the Talent & Transformation division at Fastnet – The Talent Group is led by Dave Barry, who has steered global organisations such as Eli Lilly and Trend Micro to attract, manage, develop, engage and retain key resources.
With offices in Dublin and Cork, Fastnet – The Talent Group is already a leading provider of recruitment, executive search and contract services to clients and candidates in the life sciences, agri-food and associated business services sectors, and companies are already working with the Talent & Transformation division.
“This new Talent & Transformation division is reflective of our firm’s strategic focus and consultative approach to our work on behalf of our clients. We are ahead of the curve in bringing this talent management focus to the Irish market, and we have already seen firsthand both the strategic requirements and positive results of talent management for businesses,” said Niamh O’Driscoll, Managing Director of Fastnet – The Talent Group.
