I know when I use Designs on Talent, I’m going to get creative design, good solid development, timely execution and proactive communication. Many firms provide strategy development, but success comes from translating strategy into plans and deliverables. Strategy is just words on paper without the plans, deliverables and measurements you need to make it come to life. And that’s what the Designs on Talent team does for me.
General Manager, People and Organization Capability - Microsoft
Linda, Designs on Talent’s Managing Director, has been one of the most frequently called upon to offer perspective and insight on a range of talent questions. She is bright, has a broad perspective on human capital systems, and cares deeply--not only about what the client needs, but what will be most helpful to them, even if that means an opportunity for someone else.
Director, Talent Strategy - Chick-fil-A
The Recruiter Assessment Center identified a significant gap in my team’s skills that might have taken me years to identify on my own. Because of the program, I now know who on my team excels at each skill—giving me resources for training those who need to improve. We are also now much further along in finalizing individual development plans for each person on my team.
