CULTURAL TALENT

MANAGEMENT SERVICES

At Waterstone, we see talent management as a continuum, inclusive of cultural assessment, executive search and recruitment, succession planning, cultural alignment and leadership assessment and coaching.

Learn more about our newest tool, The Waterstone Culture Dashboard below.  It's a brief survey that measures your organizational culture.

CULTURAL ASSESSMENT

 

As a leader of your organization, do you understand what behaviours drive your success? Are there common behaviours amongst your top performers that you would like to identify and articulate? Waterstone would meet with you to discuss the kind of culture you have, as well as the kind you are striving towards. We would then meet with your high performers, review your corporate strategy and materials, present a GAP and SWOT analysis between your current and desired culture, and strategies for pushing it towards the desired state.

EXECUTIVE SEARCH AND RECRUITMENT

 

At Waterstone, we go deeper.

 

Each search starts with a modified cultural assessment so we can best identify the behaviours that drive success through your current high performers. This then facilitates us finding candidates that share those behaviours.

 

We believe excellence in recruitment and search is about looking for behavioural patterns that fit your culture, but we go deeper to uncover them. We do this through deeper directed referencing, behavioural assessment, and checks on character, performance and reputation; verification includes education, professional roles, finance, legal and social media. We also work with you to get candidates to present real life business cases or 100 day plans that allows you to see how they behave and test your findings. Going deeper is why our one year placement guarantee is best-in-class globally and our retention rates amongst candidates is unparallelled.

 

We know it is how leaders do things more than what they do that drives performance.

 

Our Recruit4FitTM process is designed to maximize candidate fit and integration, allowing us to identify candidates who possess the key behaviours that drive success within your organization.

SUCCESSION PLANNING

 

How does your organization ensure it has the right bench strength, and that a new generation of leaders are being identified and developed that fit your unique culture?

We have a five-step process to help our clients through this very important analysis:

Identify

critical

positions

Identify

competencies

and cultural fit facilitators

Identify succession management strategies

 

(i.e. Internal pools, virtual bench,

on-boarding, recruitment, development and training)

Document and implement

succession plans

 

(train key enablers on succession tactics)

Evaluate effectiveness

(key metrics and data)

CULTURAL ALIGNMENT SERVICES

 

Once we have helped our clients recruit the best talent, we then help them identify how to keep that talent through a comprehensive analysis of their compensation, performance management, rewards and recognition, and other human capital programs.

ASSESSMENT AND COACHING

 

Waterstone conducts team member assessments using a variety of behavioural analysis including in depth interviews, 360s, self-assessment and profiling tools. Then, development plans are created based on team member's needs, with a particular focus on adapting to the core behaviours that drive culture.

RECRUITMENT TRAINING AND CONSULTING

 

Our recruitment team is adept at assessing and analyzing your recruitment processes and making recommendations based on best-in-class recruitment practices. They can also train your team on how to Recruit4FitTM. Ask us about how we can take you from good to great.

Much of what we do has come out of our involvement and leadership in the Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures programâ„¢, which has been the R & D lab that provides us with the best human capital practices from leading organizations across Canada and the world.
