Recruitment is a never-ending task for all organizations – and a challenging one for most. The holy grail in hiring a candidate who has all of the desired skills shows enormous potential for future success and development and is available exactly when and where the company needs him or her. This issue of AccruePartners HR Insights presents some strategies that can help companies improve their chances of finding that candidate, especially if they’re willing to shift their perspective on talent searches.
In the feature article of this issue, “Using Data to Recognize Reward, and Retain High-Potential Employees,” Adam Rogers explains how organizations can leverage Big Data to gain insight into the potential of candidates and employees.“Armed with this information,” he writes, “organizations can build succession plans, consider future compensation or professional development, and decide which top performers are worth long-term investments.” By developing high-potential employees, companies can help create the talent they need rather than simply hope to stumble across it.
If you are having trouble finding your perfect candidates “in the wild,” take some time to reconsider how—and where—you’re searching for and evaluating them. Maybe your holy grail is already right under your nose! At AccruePartners we can help you reframe your search criteria and focus your efforts in new directions so you have more success in finding what you need.
