Unleashing Growth: The Benefits of Using an Embedded Talent Provider for Your Team

Hero Curve

‘Embedded Talent’: a phrase that’s becoming more and more common in the Scale Up world. 

But before we delve into why it’s becoming increasingly popular, we need to ask the question, what exactly is ‘Embedded Talent’? 

Effectively, an Embedded Talent Solution Provider works closely with you to handle various aspects of talent management. “Embedded” means they are deeply integrated in your recruitment operations, almost like being a part of your internal team. 


So what are the challenges that scale-up businesses face when going through periods of growth? 

As you strive to establish a strong foundation for growth, the continual investment that scaling-up your team requires can often become a barrier for success. Not being able to establish an in-house talent acquisition team, not having the right technologies in place and the inability to offer the competitive packages that are provided by larger organisations can also become a problem. So too does culture: ensuring you bring people on board that fit your culture and long-term vision can be tricky.  

So how can an Embedded Talent solution solve these problems? And how exactly does it differ from the more traditional method that is used by recruitment agencies across the globe? 


Cultural Alignment  

Here at Spinks, our embedded talent solution, Spinks on Site, tackles Cultural Alignment issues by seamlessly integrating into your operations by having our Talent Managers and Talent Partners present themselves on LinkedIn as part of the your team with access to company systems like email and slack. They are physically onsite with your team, which allows for a firsthand understanding of your company culture.

The face-to-face presence of our Talent Managers and Talent Partners ensures the smooth assimilation of new hires into your business.
