Case Study in Talent Management: Revelation Consulting Ltd

Talent management, succession planning and knowledge management seem like HR buzzwords of the last decade, yet for some businesses they represent a very real and very threatening problem.A global engineering company with an outstanding reputation has a highly skilled and experienced workforce with experience going back to the first jet aircraft, the first nuclear power stations and the first large scale materials handling systems in the UK.

The problem is that 50% of these people will reach retirement age in the next 5 years. This means that 50% of the company’s tacit knowledge will disappear, and the older installations that the company still supports will be left with no instruction manual. Historically, the company has had no formal knowledge management structure, and knowledge was passed across generations using the time honoured methods of apprenticeship and team work.

Fox Entertainment Group – home to 20th Century Fox Film Studio, MySpace, Fox Broadcasting and more – is an exciting place to work. But for new-hires, paper-based, manual onboarding was not an exciting process. In order to effectively engage and retain employees in their competitive marketplace, Fox focused on transforming the new-hire experience to reflect its entertaining and dynamic environment.

Attracting and Retaining Top Talent By Capitalizing on Being a Top Brand. In 2006, Deloitte was contracted by Fox Entertainment Group to provide talent management research for Fox. Findings included:
Competition for top talent will become more fierce.
Fox’s current ‘employment brand’ may be undermining its attempts to attract top performers.
