Talent management tools
& HR analytics


The difference a talent management platform can make

Expectations of workforces are changing as a result of seismic shifts in working patterns. A recent global study revealed that around 40% of workers plan to leave their current employer within the year.

Losing talent, as well as each poor hire, can end up costing a company thousands of dollars. It can also have a long term impact on an organisation in terms of succession planning and knowledge drain. But leading companies are increasingly making use of talent analytics and digital talent management tools to develop focused talent strategies to help mitigate that talent loss and build overall talent potential.

The difference the right talent management solution makes is that leaders and HR decision-makers can make better, proactive decisions with talent analytics. With insights into their talent pool, they can assess overall organisational strengths and challenges, develop effective employee engagement and retention strategies, hire better and faster, build stronger teams, identify future leaders, and ultimately, become employers of choice.

Catalyst Interest Profile

The Catalyst Interest Profile focuses on areas of interest, motivation and work task preference. It maps an individual’s vocational interest and can match them to career pathways.

Catalyst Preference Profile

The Catalyst Preference Profile provides information about an individual’s strengths, personality-based motivations, challenges and stress factors. It maps an individual’s preferred work environment in which they are most likely to thrive.

Catalyst Values Profile

The Catalyst Values Profile helps the individual to reflect on what is important for them, both at work and in a personal setting. It maps an individual’s work values and identifies what they need to focus on to be more resilient and to better handle stress.

How the profiling assessment works

Candidates complete the career discovery assessment online using a link sent to their email address. The assessment takes about 30 minutes. After completing their assessment, their Catalyst Profile is collated with the rest of their team and compiled into the interactive dashboards, Catalyst Engage or Catalyst Recruit (for hiring managers). Optionally, candidates can receive a personalised report in PDF format.

With our mission to nudge companies to rethink hiring so that we can broaden the talent pool in Singapore as well as fight biases in the workplace, we couldn’t have found a better partner than EPITOME. Their platform helps people see individual talents the way they are and allows companies to find the right fit beyond the standard outdated measures of what talent should be.

Martin TanCEO, Majurity Trust

It is important that we be able to assess and understand our jobseekers holistically in order to design effective career coaching and career counselling interventions. The profiling services dovetail with our current career development approach and allow us to approach interventions from a multi-angled perspective compared to other solutions which only offer one or two at most.

Jeremiah WongWSG Manager, Career Services Division

Through the team mapping exercise, we identified key gaps in roles needed as a collective leadership team that were missing from the Founders. We made a senior hiring decision to close this gap and distributed responsibilities among the founders based on
our secondary preferences.

Azran Osman-RaniCEO, Naluri

The results and findings on individuals in the four teams outlined key metrics around their aspirations, motivations and concerns. This allowed for our Human Capital team to address concerns and, in some cases, extend counselling to affected individuals, mitigating
staff turnover and adverse sentiments.

Nizam Bin Mohamed NadzriCEO, Malaysia Debt Ventures Berhad

The career profiling tools gave us accurate and immediate insight into how we were aligned as an organisation as well as identifying the strengths of people in our unique program. We could also see the challenges some individuals were facing and were able to intervene effectively. As an onboarding tool, it really helped us find the optimal roles for new staff and motivate them.
