    Intelligent Insights

    TalentFlo offers powerful real time dashboard reporting, customised process flow development and automated immigration compliance checks at a touch of a keystroke. Our clients leverage leading-edge data and machine learning capabilities to predict immigration outcomes, anticipate and minimise immigration compliance liabilities while also guiding intelligent decision making in the cross border mobility space.

    The Future Is Now

    TalentFlo does not merely facilitate the processing of immigration matters, instead its design anticipates key information, trends and analysis to inform business leaders of actionable insights to improve their mobility program. Significant focus was placed on the capability of TalentFlo to automate redundant processes while enhancing operational efficiencies. Clients appreciate the ability to make real time changes to our platform given its agile configuration and ability to customise processes resulting in a compressed timelines from file initiation to visa approval.


    Integrated Technology

    TalentConnect is a single sign-on delivery system predicated on process optimization, efficiency and service innovation. GH partners with our clients to review internal processes and jointly re-design a single integrated delivery model to streamline the immigration and related processes. Our client’s internal systems and processes are directly connected to our configurable technology platform resulting in higher efficiencies, reporting perspectives and cost savings.

    Invested Partnership

    TalentConnect eliminates the duplication of efforts and significantly reduces the lifecycle involved from the moment a resource is identified to the time of visa issuance. Our integrated process automates any immigration related changes impacting a timeline, strategy or compliance consideration between key stakeholders, including compensation, recruitment, HR and the GH team. TalentConnect is our next level partnership commitment personified in a technology solution.


    Predictive Analysis

    TalentSUV was designed to analyse the strength of PR applications submitted under Canada’s Start-Up Visa Class to ensure the best chance of success. Given significant backlogs and challenges facing SUV cases under the current program, GH devised a comprehensive business analysis review process that factors in risk criteria based on Canadian jurisprudence on SUV applications.

    TalentSUV permits applicants and relevant stakeholders to understand the strength and potential weaknesses of their application and the terms of their commitment certificate based on previous decisions rendered by immigration authorities. Our analysis allows applicants to significantly improve their application materials, business plans and activities to strengthen their likelihood of success and to reduce the chances of being selected for Peer Review.

    In addition to Founders, TalentSUV is a valuable resource for Venture Capital Funds, Angels and Designated Incubators in seeking a review of their internal validation processes to determine whether industry standards are met.


    Selection Strategies

    TalentSelect involves a deep understanding of immigration eligibility criteria, processing times, policy interpretation and adjudication trends to help employers determine an overall strategy to mobilize foreign talent to meet the specific needs of their various business units.

    Predictive Analytics

    TalentSelect defines and tracks case types based on the specific objective and subjective elements relating to a given immigration process and refuses prospective cases against historical data to predict success rates, processing times and to determine immigration strategies from temporary processing and transition to permanent residence status.

    Our immigration logic and internal engines are easily modified to also predict the outcomes of other non-canadian immigration work permits such as H1B visas, L1 intra-company transfer petitions and RFE petitions. GH assists clients with analyzing immigration data sets, processing trends and outcomes that will be the foundation of immigration processing for the future.

    What personal information is collected through this website?

    We will not collect personal information indiscriminately.

We may also collect information about your business and business interests or your personal interests to better serve you.
    We collect information about our users in three ways: directly from the user, from our Web server logs and through cookies. We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. We don’t share any of the information you provide with others, unless we say so in this Policy, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

We only require that you provide an e-mail address on the contact form. Further, if chat is available through this site, you may be asked to provide information if you participate in an online chat.

    Web Server Logs

    Our website is hosted on servers shared with an Internet service provider (ISP). Any personal information collected on our behalf by the ISP, such as server log data (see below), is managed in accordance with this Policy and is protected by applicable law.
    Certain information about Internet users’ traffic patterns is passively and automatically collected and linked to users’ Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. These unique IP addresses are assigned to all Web users by their ISPs, and are automatically logged by Internet servers. While the IP address itself does not identify an individual, it may, in appropriate circumstances such as an investigation of a security breach, be used with the cooperation of the ISP to locate and identify an individual using the website.
    In the normal course of establishing and maintaining Internet connections, our servers automatically log information about visits to our website. Server logs record statistical information, such as a visitor’s IP address and type of operating system, the time and duration of visit and Web pages requested. The server logs also identify categories of visitors by items such as domain and browser type. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to us and are used to improve our website and ensure that it provides the optimal online experience for visitors.
    We do not link server log information to any other data in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors, except for security purposes, as discussed above.

    Cookies

    Like many other websites, our website makes use of “per session” cookie technology. Per session cookies are small text files that contain a unique identification number that is automatically deposited on a visitor’s computer. These cookies track information during an open session and are stored only temporarily in your computer’s memory. This information helps us determine the total number of visitors to the website on an ongoing basis and the types of Internet browsers and operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh) that our visitors use. We use this information to facilitate and enhance your online visits. We do not cross-reference this information with any type of personal information that is voluntarily offered through the website.
    The use of cookie technology is common on the Internet, and many Internet browsers are initially set to accept cookies automatically. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your Internet browser to notify you when your computer is receiving a cookie or to refuse cookies automatically. To readjust your Internet browser’s cookie options, please refer to the instruction documentation of your particular browser or seek online assistance. You should understand that some features of many sites may not function properly if you don’t accept cookies.

Individuals that use and access this website hereby acknowledge and agree that such information obtained by such third party providers located in countries other than Canada may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement or national security authorities of such country.

    Retention of Personal Information

    We will retain information, including personal information, for as long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was collected. The length of time we retain information varies, depending on the service and the nature of the information. This period may extend beyond the end of a person’s relationship with us but it will be only for so long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise at a later date. When your Personal Information is no longer required, we have procedures to delete, erase or convert it into an anonymous form.
