Chief People Officer
Head of Transformation for Diageo.
Diageo approached Inventum Group as the Talent Acquisition team had delivered a fully male shortlist for a Head of Transformation search.
Diageo are committed to diverse shortlists, wanted to understand where there were blockages and re-run the search. They wanted to engage with a search partner who adopted inclusive processes and who could deliver a diverse/gender balanced shortlist.
The team at Inventum worked closely with its consulting arm to initially review the current process that had been undertaken by Diageo and its Talent Acquisition team.It concluded that both the role profile and the subsequent advertisement had excluded women with both the language used and the duties set out – many of which were incorrect and no longer relevant. Inventum worked with the hiring managers to overhaul and redesign the role profile and the advertisement.
Inventum Re-ran the search and delivered a gender balanced shortlist and a female was subsequently offered and accepted the role.Diageo were grateful they could work with a search partner that could advise (via their consulting arm) of the blockages in their original process with a view to re running the process and delivering the gender balanced shortlist they desired.

The team at Inventum worked closely with its consulting arm to develop a behavioural matrix for the CPO.
Interviews were conducted separately with 4 members of the leadership team to understand what they considered to be important behavioural traits from the successful individual. Inventum then reviewed all the qualitative and quantitative data to provide a 360 degree view on the candidate.
All Shortlisted candidates were then matched against this assessment and 360 view to ensure that they matched the behavioural and psychometric profile the role required.
