Consulting & Research

Swann Global’s Human Capital consulting practice provides the full complement of talent related services to help clients attract, manage and retain their people assets. Swann provides a spectrum of organizational and policy analysis covering remuneration, retention, succession planning, cultural and generational change.


Talent Mapping

In addition to a large internal database of highly qualified candidates, our network is the who’s who of the international natural resources and industrial sectors. Should we not already know the best person(s) for a vacancy, our network or our Global Research Team will identify them. Swann Global adopts a collaborative path to search that matches the strategic, financial and operational features of our client’s culture. Our proactive approaches include ‘talent watch’ and ‘pipeline’ techniques to identify, track and deliver talented individuals as needed.

Succession Planning

Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing a company’s employees/personnel with the potential to successfully fulfill key leadership positions in the company. Lack of succession planning could potentially result in significant destabilisation of a company as the senior executive leaders are headed towards retirement. Swann has worked with a number of Boards to revitalise the executive teams and strategically introduced new generation leaders and successors to corporate leadership.

Rewards & Compensation

Since 2014, Swann jointly designed and created two international remuneration studies

These reports review executive remuneration practices of the top 100 leading mining companies globally and can serve as a benchmark reference document to:
• Set appropriate pay levels throughout the organisation
• Attract the right talent through competitive remuneration schemes
• Retain top performers by offering competitive short and long-term incentives
• Manage the bottom line

Swann is committed to co-producing these reports for the next several years and be in a position to capture trends.
We believe this is a highly beneficial solution to the present challenge of putting effective remuneration policies in place to reflect market conditions and empower employees and senior management to be confident in their remuneration policies.
