One of the most common questions from executives is: How do I find and keep the best people in today’s competitive employment market? If that’s your issue, you’re far from alone. 87 percent of CEOS list talent as their #1 issue; and four in ten can’t find candidates with the skills they need.
Attracting the right talent is not about the beer or the foosball table, and salary is not usually the top candidate issue either. Today’s employees are looking for purpose, flexibility, and inspiration. They want a workplace where strong core values are practiced and everyone is treated with respect and humanity.
Give up on “post and pray,” where you post an open position and pray that the right candidate finds you. Learn how to attract the right talent by establishing and maintaining a strategic recruitment process that makes you irresistible.
