The War for Talent

We’ve been in the throes of the war for talent for nearly two decades now.

Companies everywhere are striving to build stronger employment brands, crafting worker flexibility plans, and seed funding internal innovation labs, all in the hopes of attracting and retaining the best and brightest. And while these and other HR programs are good and needed, the fact remains that no company will have all the right talent it needs available at all times to enter new markets, launch new products, harness emerging technology trends, or re-engineer enterprise business processes to sustainably improve the bottom line.

The accelerating pace of technological change coupled with recurring economic crises and global pandemics exacerbates the issue. To remain competitive and innovative, while at the same time avoiding the bloated payrolls of the past, companies need to tap into external talent ecosystems to “borrow” expert insight and highly skilled labor for key initiatives.

Clarus Group Associates

Clarus Group partners with companies to help fill that talent gap. While our core business is helping companies build sustainable frameworks through architectural foundations, we understand companies may at times just need a force multiplier to get projects over the finish line, or need that one SME to act as an outside set of eyes to make sure best practices are in place for key programs, and you can borrow our talent to do just that.

What separates us from traditional management consulting or staff augmentation arrangements though is our commitment to leaving our clients in a stronger position than when we started. One of the longer-term risks of using external talent is key knowledge going out the door when separation occurs. 

We work with our clients to mitigate that risk by fostering mentorship programs or knowledge transfer sessions to ensure a smooth post engagement transition. This allows our clients the ability to leverage Clarus Group resources to train and develop (we like to call it “green-up”) their internal team.
