Advisory services

Reward and retain your best people

Using insightful, relevant data

"Taylor Hopkinson helped us in our quest to identify competency gaps in our existing team, conducting psychometric profiling on all team members. They then helped us to design role descriptions for new hires to address those gaps, and develop a selection and interview format that would assess these competencies. This process was extremely valuable to us in terms of attracting and retaining our talent.."

Advisory services

Helping you make informed decisions

We derive a significant share of revenues from advisory services delivered to our clients. These services improve retention and development of employees and are deployed at various stages of the recruitment process.

Remuneration benchmarking
Are you paying your key team members enough to retain them in increasingly competitive markets? Using our proven methodology and database of over 70,000 renewables-specific contacts, we can provide you with accurate,  real time data to support budgeting, attraction, retention and incentivising your teams.  Our data is tailored to your specific needs, and these services have been proven to reduce costs and improve performance across a wide range of our clients. 

Organisational design
Are you new to the renewables sector? You can rely on us to advise on the design of your organisation to maximise efficiency and effectiveness. Specific services  include organogram design, job description benchmarking, KPI benchmarking and design

Selection process benchmarking
In highly competitive and constrained talent markets, the candidate experience can save you time and money.  If you are losing candidates to competitors and money is not the issue, we can help you improve your interview and selection processes to better assess and attract talent.

Psychometric Profiling
Are your teams lacking certain competencies? Are development plans focusing on the right competencies for all team members? Our consultants are certified to administer Thomas International DISC profiling. This is included in the majority of our retained work, to improve selection decisions and cultural fit within your teams. We also offer this as a standalone product both in selection processes and in team development exercises.

Succession Planning
Leadership changes can have a major impact on organisational culture, share price and talent retention. You can manage this transition by proactively planning for these inevitable changes. We help you identify a shortlist of potential successors, approachable up to 12 months prior to a vacancy.

This process, coupled with frequent progress updates, reassures investors and alleviates any potential of negative market reaction.

Case study

Design for success

We have delivered remuneration benchmarking for clients on single roles through to 78 roles across an entire project organisation. For some clients we focus on the entire remuneration profile but, for others we deliver analysis on certain elements, such as, long term incentive plans and relocation assistance packages.

These have been delivered for multinational utilities, as well as, SME’s.

When entering the European offshore wind industry, our Asian client requested a full report on how a modern offshore wind delivery team is set up and managed. We delivered our 400-page report to assist them in challenging and supporting the leadership team they had acquired leading to positive changes in team structure and productivity.
