the new war for talent

the new “war for talent”

One of the greatest challenges facing managers is finding, attracting and above all retaining the right candidates for their organisation, at a time when there are increasing numbers of disengaged and demotivated employees and a general disconnection within organisations. In France, the average cost of disengagement in terms of health, quality of life and working conditions has reached a record of 13,250 euros per employee per year, a 32% YoY increase[1]. Hence the need to give you the means to effectively assess and steer the impact of management on your teams during the key phase of integrating your new employees. To this end, we are partnering with Mozart Consulting to offer you a unique Onboarding Diagnostic & Performance solution, the DP [On]™.

an uphill battle

an uphill battle

Be honest with yourself: sourcing, attracting and securing the candidates your organisation needs is a real obstacle course, made worse by the intense “war for talent” in our Western countries and the inability of most senior managers to understand the new generations, stigmatised by millennials. Partnering with Scyllage is not only a comfortable way for you to confidently entrust the search for your key resources to experts who fully understand your organisation's challenges ans ways of working, it is also the ultimate guarantee that your new employees will adapt to your organization's culture and DNA, and fit seamlessly into your teams. What's more, we offer a contractual guarantee for all our search mandates.

how we do it

how we do it

Meticulous preparation, impeccable execution from start to finish, and our secret sauce: an in-depth understanding of the metabolism of a high-performance organisation, combined with the prediction of human behaviour. Recent developments in neuroscience and cognitive psychology now allow for a rich and nuanced behavioural analysis, a far cry from the simplistic caricature of personality tests, which are to be avoided in recruitment contexts because they are discriminatory. The balanced integration of human behaviour prediction into our recruitment processes enables us to select candidates who are not only competent, but also fully aligned with your company's culture, practices and needs.
