- Employer Branding
As demand for high-calibre school leavers, graduates and MBAs grows, it is vital for organisations to develop an employer brand proposition that both appeals to a new generation of emerging talent and honestly reflects the reality – good and bad – of the day-to-day employment experience.
Through focus groups, surveys and wider market research, Futureboard can help you gauge the perception of your brand on campus among specific student groups and help enhance your proposition, targeting the candidates who are most likely to be inspired by, and successful in, your organisation.
- Assessment Design
Futureboard’s consultants design bespoke assessment and development centres for our clients, using robust competency and strengths based recruitment models, delivered via the latest technology, including immersive and virtual reality assessment.
We take a personalised approach, designing material that links to your view of leadership in the context of your organisation. The materials we create will reflect your employer brand and helps your candidates to understand the reality of life within your organisation. Our goal is to make any assessment or development centre challenging, but also insightful and fun for assessors and candidates alike.
We believe that thorough feedback is hugely beneficial to candidates, helping them to build awareness of their key strengths and highlight any areas in need of additional development.
- Development Programme Design
As school leavers, apprentices, graduates and MBAs are becoming increasingly discerning about career choices and more sceptical about marketing propaganda, it is essential that organisations have a forward-thinking approach towards their investment in employee development. We can work with you to produce a future leaders development programme that accommodates your business objectives whilst also inspiring the minds of today’s emerging talent and future leaders.
Our commitment to stimulating and carefully targeted development will ensure that you retain your valued talent long after the initial learning and development programme has been completed. We can either provide a fully-customised programme, or candidates can be enrolled on an ‘open’ course, via our collaboration with Impact International.
