Why you might be missing the best talent.
Posted: 4th October 2018
Why you should consider your talent pipeline at all times, whether you are hiring for new positions or not. Here are our three tips;
Strategy: Complementing your organisation's goals and business plans, a considered recruitment strategy will review the skills and capabilities of your existing team and any potential requirements to upskill through external recruitment to meet business objectives.
Succession planning: Is highly effective as it offers employees scope for development and a clear career trajectory, which will improve your retention efforts. People are much more likely to remain with an organisation where they can see their future potential and feel valued.
Delivery: If your approach is traditionally advertise directly have you considered that your dream candidate might be blissfully unaware of your role's existence and so you are limiting your search to only candidates proactively on the lookout? Established and ongoing relationships will make recruitment much easier - we do the groundwork for when an opportunity becomes available and can identify and approach these people on your behalf.
We will be able to connect you with talented candidates, which are worth meeting to expand your network, even if you don't have an appropriate position available. You never know when their skillset might come in handy and being ahead of the curve when it comes to sourcing new talent will pay dividends.
