Great talents are hard to come by. Many companies are realizing how hard it is to lose good talents, That’s why they make an effort to hold on to them. Those who fail to realize this, lose good people to competition. Attracting and hiring the right people is not only hard because they are rare, it is hard because many organizations do not have a good recruitment strategy. Specially for smaller organizations, recruitment seems to be trivialized that they end up hiring people who fail to deliver or contribute to their objectives. I believe that organizations should start looking at building a good recruitment strategy and here are a few suggested starting points.
Cast a Wider Net
A lot of the desirable talents are gainfully and or happily employed somewhere. You seldom find a combination of good and available talent. It helps to have a good sourcing strategy that go beyond the traditional job boards. It’s time to use technology, social media and all other creative means to find the talent you are looking for. Partner with a good outsourced recruitment company who can serve your needs. (Disclosure: ExeQserve offers recruitment services.)
