Take a Net Zero Approach to Talent

The world and the workplace are evolving quickly. To meet these challenges, businesses must work to create a vital, sustainable ecosystem for talent by applying a Net Zero approach to their talent strategy. This means reimagining how they attract, hire, reskill and redeploy talent, to optimize the skills of their people.


As the leader in innovative workforce solutions, Talent Solutions has developed a maturity framework that helps businesses measure, improve and track their talent practices against those critical to becoming a talent-centric organization. The Talent Sustainability Framework provides the insights and solutions needed to prioritize and develop a strategic plan for the sustainable management of talent.



To benchmark talent sustainability practices, organizations can complete the Talent Sustainability Quotient (TSQ) which evaluates how they are performing across three domains, each with six dimensions that are key enablers for creating self-sustaining talent ecosystems.


The three domains include:

  • TSQ Acquiring and Hiring

  • TSQ Engaging and Evolving

    Engaging and Evolving Talent to Create A Higher-Skilled Workforce at an Optimum Cost

  • TSQ Culture

    Improve Culture, Retention and Belonging by Transforming Leaders

Each dimension has been mapped using a five-factor Likert scale so organizations can see how mature their talent practices are, as well as receive tangible KPIs to improve performance to reach their sustainability goals.
