The Talent Practice

at Capatus

Some organizations just work. They accomplish what they set out to do, powered by engaged employees with the tools and motivation to get the job done. Yet only a fraction of companies are designed to achieve this. Together, we can design, develop and implement upon a talent strategy designed to drive better business results.

Talent/Talent Leadership is a critical strategy to capitalize upon competitive advantage and for market leadership. We partner with organizations ranging from start-up to Fortune 500 to develop creative strategies and create a new talent dynamic that transforms and innovates the hiring, onboarding, development, and retention function. Couple this with our extreme customer service model and you have a strategic partnership that not only results in better talent and higher talent retntion, but drives better business results.

The challenges are real…talent scarcity, globalization, the era of the individual, just to name just a few. These and more will determine which companies win out over their competitors in the race for talent. Developing a thriving workforce requires business modelling and industry insights to know what initiatives will deliver the most value. Are you ready? 

We provide the fresh thinking and deep insight you need to attract, organize  motivate and develop the right people for your business, and to build a high-performing internal HR function in support of your business goals.

Talent Acquisition, RPO & Talent360

Our RPO solution can support some or all aspects of the talent acquisition process from position scoping through hire and onboarding. It is a strategic solution that provides you with a competitive advantage in the market, differentiates you from your competitors, and exceeds the expectation of your internal customers and leadership. Based upon your business goals and objectives, we partner with you to develop a custom solution that drives business results.

Talent acquisition is constantly changing and growing ever more complex. Organizations need innovative, scalable solutions to remain competitive and results-driven.

Recruitment Process Optimization/Outsourcing solutions will help you fill positions faster, with higher-quality candidates, while delivering exceptional candidate and hiring manager experiences. A bit of disruption perhaps? We will help you rethink your approach to talent acquisition and recruitment, giving you dedicated recruitment teams embedded within your internal team that use the latest talent acquisition technology while living and breathing your culture and serving as brand champions.


Independent contractors, freelancers, and project-based staff and other contingent workers play an increasingly large role in today’s workforce, and using only traditional methods or just a single channel to find them puts your brand at risk for missing the best talent.

Our Talent360 solution provides a way for you to recruit and manage all of your talent, permanent and contingent. This approach lets you align talent to your business strategy, enhance visibility, increase the talent pool, and centralize your talent acquisition function.
