General market movements and trends: the professional feedback provided by Cortez regarding external market developments is always appreciated and helps the organisation to appropriately steer the talent acquisition strategy. The data shared covers areas like rewards trends, migration of skill and talents, generation idiosyncrasies as regards motivational fit and retention developments. The focus scope is global given the nature of Schneider Electric. External mapping: Due to the nature of our business, the criticality to lessen transition time losses is unparalleled.

The exercise was immensely valuable and provided us with opportunity to benchmark structural efficiency, skills availability and application and available market bench strength.”
