Our People and Culture

People and culture

Our people are our business.

The quality of their work and their coaching interventions are what makes Talking Talent exceptional. Our culture and passion is unique, and we truly practice what we preach. This is clear through the high demand for our services and being recognised as the ‘Consultancy of the Year’ at the Personnel Today Awards.

Our people 

We look for people who have a passion for the work we do, who are confident, interesting and authentic. People with commercial backgrounds, first-rate accreditations and the ability to make a real difference to people and business. Our team embraces some of the very best and brightest coaches in the business, including more professionally accredited coaches than any other coaching consultancy.

The Talking Talent team have very different perspectives and personalities. We have lawyers, journalists, psychologists, advertising and HR professionals, consultants and more! Our people are personable and have the ability to relate to anyone and have a broad range of interests outside the office.

Because of the nature of Talking Talent’s business, our success depends on attracting and retaining the best coaches from all walks of life, and we’re passionately committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive culture. It is this collective experience that shapes Talking Talent, by constantly challenging us and helping create ideas that keep us moving forward.

Our culture

Our culture is truly unique. Despite being internationally and geographically scattered, with many remote and agile workers, Talking Talent is close-knit, with a strong culture of support and engagement. It's a culture that combines passion and versatility with intelligence and integrity to overcome one of the most talked about and sensitive debates in business today.

We are very family orientated and fully embrace agile working – in fact, only 40% of people work full-time. We believe our ‘outcome focussed’ culture is what really drives the business. We enjoy travel, we enjoy our work and we enjoy getting the most out of life. We have a genuinely refreshing culture and an organisational commitment to changing the way the world does business.

In the community

We recognise our wider social responsibilities and have a strong fundraising and volunteering culture, both as a business and as individuals. Our people have a commitment to supporting charitable initiatives at home and abroad, offering their time and expertise to improve the lives of others less fortunate, as well as raising money for donations to a wide range of causes. We also take a proactive approach to reducing the impact of our business operations on the environment.

Here are some examples of our commitment in the community:

  • Change-makers for WorkingFamilies
  • Climbing Mount Snowdon for Laniado Hospital
  • ChildLine support volunteers
  • Advisory to the United Nations
  • Fundraising event for St Christopher's Hospice
  • Bereavement counselling volunteers
  • Reducing consumption and managing waste at our 3 global offices
