Talent management

Aligning people and teams with business goals

talent management

For too long, organisations’ skills-acquisition strategies have been reactive – responding to emerging needs, often just in time. Although the training still delivers benefits, it enslaves the organisation into the mindset of being a follower; a mindset where training simply fixes problems instead of trailblazing new destinies. We help organisations to plan their headcount and skills requirements to prepare for the future – to proactively manage their teams, to build a business that has the skills needed to succeed when the business needs them.


Helping organisations resolve skills-acquisition challenges

There are times when you need an outside view. It might be for an extra pair of hands, an objective viewpoint or to exploit experience that the in-house team lacks. That’s when Obscurant can help. We have extensive experience across a wide spectrum of skills-acquisition activities, from the tactical to the strategic – encompassing everything from recruitment to training. We can provide your business with that boost of experience it needs – helping you to achieve your goals faster, in fewer stages, while avoiding costly missteps.



Transforming the performance of your people


Properly targeted, effective training can alter the fortunes of a company – driving it towards greater efficiency and profitability. We’re adept at helping organisations with every aspect of their training – from developing a powerful training strategy to putting in place pre-employment training programmes for new starters. We have a proven track record of helping organisations within many sectors, enabling them to understand their skills needs and then implement training programmes which put those skills in place.
