Who We Are

The Steve Trautman Co. are global experts in talent risk management and knowledge transfer solutions. We deliver risk assessment and mitigation for your technical and professionally-skilled teams based on leading-edge talent data and a practical process.

We are specialists in solving your day-to-day talent planning, talent shortage, and employee transition problems. Unlike the Deloittes or KPMGs of the world, we start at the strategic level and then go deep—down to risks at the technical task level where the rubber hits the road. Our work is about more than mere headcount—it’s about reducing risk around technical capacity: what your people do and don’t know how to do.

As the pioneers in the field for over two decades, our scalable methods are yielding measurable results at scores of blue chip and global companies every day. With our data, clarity and speed, you will be confident that you are effectively managing your talent risk.
