Strategic Human Resources

The alignment of business strategy with talent is essential to the success of any organization, and Talent Management is core to the work of Jackson Hole Group.

Talent Management at Jackson Hole Group goes beyond the conventional tactical work of the Human Resources function. Rather, it focuses on helping organizations fully leverage their investment in employees. It may include employee engagement, talent assessment, cultural transformation, compensation design, expansion planning, or leadership development. Whatever the focus, Talent Management with Jackson Hole Group is an integrated, cohesive approach linked directly to business goals.

Jackson Hole Group principals grow exceptionally close to their clients, gaining special insight into client strengths and challenges. What makes the insight special is the first-hand perspective on the skills and interpersonal fit that produce success for executives in a specific organization. With that insight the firm often provides a value-added service to support clients in naming directors, CEOs and other senior leaders.

It may mean assessment of an internal candidate as part of an existing succession plan or an external search to recruit new talent.  When a candidate is identified, Jackson Hole provides assistance in sensitive areas like compensation negotiations, internal communications, onboarding, and executive transition. In many cases Jackson Hole Group continues to support the client through coaching of executives in their new roles and responsibilities.

Case in point: Jackson Hole Group provided an interim senior executive to fill a key role to a client undergoing significant organizational change. Over a multi-year period Jackson Hole repositioned Human Resources into a strategic partner on the executive team in leading this major business transformation. With Jackson Hole’s deep understanding of the company’s needs and a thorough understanding of the demands on the role, the CEO sought the firm’s assistance in finding a permanent replacement for this critical position. Jackson Hole created the position specifications, identified internal and external candidates, and managed the seamless onboarding of the new executive.

Client testimonial: “Jackson Hole Group helped us better understand the critical role Talent Management must play in executing our business strategy, and then supported us in both the vision and execution of that work. Jackson Hole Group knew our company and culture so well that it was natural for them to guide us in selecting a key member of our executive team and continuing as a trusted advisor through a significant organizational transformation.” R.H.
