We understand that once a year, or even quarterly – you need to gather key data about your talent to inform pay and promotion decisions. Talent Snapshots achieves that more quickly and efficiently than admin-heavy appraisal forms.

Medigold Health

Medigold Health is one of the UK’s most respected and established providers of occupational health and wellbeing services. We have been involved in the business of helping employers to keep their people in work, safe and well for over two decades.

 Unlike many of our competitors, we are a clinically led organisation from the top down. Our Life President and Founder, Dr Mike Goldsmith, established the Medigold Health brand and service delivery model on the uncompromising principles of quality and integrity.

 We are very different to many of our competitors; We have scale, but we have a human face; We have clinical heritage, but we have pioneered the most advanced modern technology; We have our own-employed clinical resources, but still have a fully national presence, And we are growing, investing and inspiring, but we are stable and without leverage.

 In October 2017 we encouraged proposals for external investment, and subsequently formed a partnership with the Business Growth Fund (BGF) who provided capital investment which enabled us to complete a number of acquisitions in both the Occupational Health and Alcohol & Drug testing markets, strengthening our national footprint and improving our vertical integration of relevant organisational health & wellbeing services. 

 We are redefining corporate healthcare in the UK and we are dedicated to “Keeping people in work, safe and well”.

Real World Group

At Real World Group we enable organisations to achieve superior, sustainable performance through harnessing their people’s full potential. We conduct research of publishable quality that identifies exactly what day-to-day behaviours differentiate the most effective individuals and teams in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world. We use this knowledge to create uniquely proven assessment tools that have been shown to enhance performance, motivation, innovation, wellbeing and many other positive outcomes. Our research and assessments are respected worldwide, and distributed in multiple countries and languages.

Since we were formed nearly 20 years ago, we have been deliberately different in focusing on the contribution of behaviour to performance, rather than personality. This enables us to get closer to predicting what will increase effectiveness, and reduces the guesswork in how personality will translate to success in a given role. Our research and approach to leadership is deliberately inclusive, which we have shown enables organisations using our self-assessment or 360-degree feedback tools to also enhance diversity and inclusion through their application.

Whether you are working within an organisation or as an independent consultant, we can upskill you to apply our ground-breaking assessments for individuals, teams, Boards, and whole organisations. This will build your own capacity and potential now and into the future.
