THE 4 PILLARS OF OUR APPROACH

UNDERSTANDING

Question - Listen - Analyze - Understand

We don't believe in the cookie-cutter approach. While our years of experience have given us the tools and knowledge, we do not pretend to know more than you about the issues you face.


Knowing how to identify and understand the causes of a problem is the most effective way to provide a lasting solution.

CULTURE

Culture: what welds individuals

Over time, your company has developed a culture of its own.  We are talking about management style, methodology, communication, behaviors, interactions and values.


Knowing how to identify the individuals most compatible and able to enrich and evolve your company's culture leads you more quickly to the perfect equation between company-culture-talent.

PEOPLE

Your People: the alpha and omega of your organization

The success of any business depends primarily on its people. Beyond markets, cycles, technologies, and all these changing factors, only one constant remains: People.


Knowing how to develop an efficient, fast, transparent and more human hiring process is the cornerstone on which an optimal work ecosystem is founded, with the added bonus of achieving full potential.

EMPOWERMENT

Boost confidence and momentum with the right tools and support

We'll help you build a recruitment function that ensures everyone is equipped with the tools and knowledge they need to grow the business to its full potential.


Knowing how to energize the entire team within a clear, transparent and effective structure allows everyone to feel more confident and empowered to act on the strategy.

OUR MISSION

Amplify human talent to help make its strategic contribution essential to the success and sustainability of companies, by increasing:

  • the talent of your teams to operate efficiently.
  • the talent of your human resources to recruit with intelligence and speed.
  • the talent of your leaders to plan with confidence.
  • the talent of your company to increase profitability.

OUR VALUES

  • Curiosity

    Our curiosity is the starting point and we make sure to cultivate it constantly. It takes great curiosity to come to fully understand a phenomenon, to know its causes and effects, especially when our intention is to improve it. Because the obvious is easy for everyone to see, but the real underlying issues are hidden in the details, and only the truly curious can find them.

  • Transparency

    Transparency is the gateway to building a relationship of trust. Acting with transparency necessarily involves complete honesty, and it also means telling it like it is, without ambiguity. With us, you will always know where we stand. Our honesty originates from the respect we have for the people with whom we collaborate, and sets the way for meaningful and impactful partnerships.

  • Fairness

    Fairness is the virtue of regulating one's conduct with reference to the principles of equity. Our constant concern for fairness sets the stage for healthy, cordial and fruitful working relationships and is an integral part of the culture we help you create. It is a guarantee of credibility and success.

  • Clarity

    Clarity saves time, reduces doubt and encourages action. The clarity of our ideas, intentions, proposals and recommendations facilitates decision-making, planning and implementation, and helps produce measurable and verifiable results. This enables HR leaders and recruitment teams to make the right decisions with confidence.

OUR ORIGINS


Our name, TALENT IQ, perfectly reflects how we intend to contribute to the growth of your business: working with talent and intelligence so that you can acquire & build an intelligent AND talented workforce.


Our logo, a homogeneous whole made up of several elements, is inspired by kintsugi. Both art and technique, kintsugi is an ancestral Japanese process by which pieces of broken porcelain are glued together with gold powder, making it even more valuable than before.



Kintsugi is also an eloquent metaphor for our work. We identify the gaps, carefully repair them in accordance with what existed before, and ensure that the result is unique, more efficient and more valuable.
