TalentSum Pro

Expertise on Demand retainer with 100% guarantee and no hidden fees.

The plan to help you get from “strategy to execution” faster.

TalentSum Pro is an annual retainer that combines audits and educational insights with expert coaching and lots of hands-on support to help you modernize and operationalize your talent acquisition and recruiting programs. Unlike other consultancies, TalentSum doesn’t just report on what’s broken. We jump into the trenches to help improve your talent acquisition and recruiting machine and keep it running.

Our Process

First, we’ll help you to establish the right foundation

When you join, we’ll set our first discovery sessions and perform our objective talent acquisition audit, TalentSum 360. Then, we’ll jump right in to help your team develop the right talent strategy and plan.

Next, we’ll work with you to put strategy into action

With your strategy and capabilities-based plan in place, we’ll help to design a path to implementation. And then, we’ll roll up our sleeves and help to address niche challenges and put your strategy into action.

And then together, we’ll work to bring about lasting change  

As we work our way through full implementation, we’ll continue to look for additional areas for continuous improvement – or we can pivot to match other needs or support future staffing requirements.

Additional Information

How do I know if I need this plan?

Stop us if any of this sounds familiar…

  • You want to develop a sound talent acquisition strategy but don’t know where to start or how to turn it into an actionable plan…
  • You know you have a great company, but for some reason you can’t establish a compelling brand to bring in those you want to hire most…
  • You’ve spent countless evaluating new approaches and tools, but now you’re second-guessing everything and need some help…
  • Your recruiting and sourcing programs are up and running but things are not going as well as you’d like, and you could use some help…
  • You want to train your people but you really need to get project work done, and you are open to try our “right-now learning” approach that combines experiential learning and hands-on consulting support.
  • You might consider our Talent Acquisition Accelerator if you are with a fast growth company and want to establish a brand new talent acquisition and recruitment function within 30 days.

What level of support will Talent Pro provide?

It depends on your need. We customize every approach and focus our energy and capabilities where you need it most. We’re set up to guide you through all aspects of discovery, implementation, training, and ongoing support to ensure that all your projects deliver the very best results. Whether it’s a daily coaching conversation or full hands-on team partnering to help you to complete important projects, we’ll customize our partnership to work best for you.

Think of us as your rapid-response team to help improve the way talent acquisition work gets done – from solving data and research problems, to activating the employer brand, to designing or enhancing experiences, to choosing or implementing the right technologies and tools, to modernizing programs across talent acquisition and recruiting, to sourcing and talent pooling, and all the way through critical hiring and 90+ day onboarding.

What else do I get with TalentSum Pro?

While we’re partnered up, you’ll also get “on-call” expert call support for your most pressing issues. And we’ll share full access to trends and tool evaluations, peer research data benchmarking, and more. We’ll also provide a steady stream of progressive ideas and insights from our team – as well as opportunities to connect with other members addressing the same issues. We’re even set up to provide add-on programs to support your immediate recruitment and hiring needs.

At any time during our time together, we are set up to jump in to help you design and implement fixed fee projects, take over routine streams of work, or provide additional resources where they are needed most. While we’re engaged, we collaborate with full transparency and as an extension of your team. We’re flexible and can handle most everyday conversations by phone, text, email, Asana / Slack, (or other), and we can do daily, weekly or monthly check-ins, ad-hoc breakout sessions, and more.

Is there a guarantee? Can we scale up/down?

Everything we do – from leading with a “teaching mindset”, to making partnering easy and affordable, to how we approach planning, drive implementation, and execute programs to deliver better outcomes, as well as the option to hit the “pause” button and our promise to leave behind all intellectual property – is designed to solve your immediate problems, prepare your people for the future, and neutralize conflicts of interest.

When you join TalentSum you are fully protected by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you don’t feel like you’ve received value and you decide you want to cancel any time within the next 30 days, just let us know and we’ll send you a prompt refund. No hassles, headaches or hoops to jump through. We’re confident that you’ll find us useful, and we won’t make you beg or invoke any silly rules or conditions – if you’re not satisfied within your first 30 days then we’ll refund you without any fuss.
