Strengthening Workforce and Location Strategy With Labor Market Insights

A large defense contracting organization found it was competing for talent not just against other federal consulting firms but also with tier-one technology companies while bidding on contracts. The director of analytics used Gartner TalentNeuron labor market insights to strategically target the right talent and make a business case to the C-suite on a new cost-effective location for a business unit.

Mission-critical priority

Workforce planning to support business growth. 

How Gartner helped

Gartner TalentNeuron supported the director of analytics with critical insight on where the target talent exists and who their traditional and nontraditional competitors are, plus the demand, supply and cost of talent. The client used TalentNeuron workbenches (custom reports) to decide where to develop a new office.

Business impact

With support from Gartner TalentNeuron, the client: 

  • Saved over two weeks with custom analysis required to meet a presentation deadline for senior and executive leadership about location alternatives
  • Avoided the risk and reduced the cost of moving to an expensive location to hire for target talent
  • Positioned HR to be a strategic partner for business development and growth in the competitive federal contracting market
