Private Equity investors face several unique human capital challenges when identifying and growing investments, from assessing senior leaders to building the alignment and skill required to execute on strategy. Brainworks has a strong track record of partnering with investors to identify the human capital strategies most critical to achieving their investment thesis, accelerating value creation, and positioning them for a strong exit.
Private equity investors generally have great instincts in assessing leaders, but most PE leaders would say that one of their most time consuming and challenging responsibilities is talent management and engaging the right leaders for their businesses. Today, many PE investors lack the same rigor in securing leaders compared to the rigorous institutionalized process they undertake in acquiring companies. BrainWorks institutionalizes the search process by utilizing unique qualitative and quantitative measurement tools and processes resulting in driving data-driven analysis in combination with instinct and gut feel.
