A Players are the Unicorns of Talent and catching one and keeping them interested requires a sense of urgency,
October ended on a high note when myself, along with LLoydIT’s Vice President, Brian Green, CSP and Executive Director Joe Davis, CSP, attended the National TechServe Alliance Conference in Boca Raton, Florida.
It’s a truth in hiring – companies spend a lot of time and expense identifying and recruiting candidates… but they should be giving equal time and expense to doing what it takes to motivate talent so that they say, “WOW, what a company, I want to work here.”
They say that the three of the most stressful things in life include moving to a new house, health issues and finding a new job. If this is true, especially the last one, it continues to stump me as to why so many job seekers approach their job search with absolutely no plan, no organization and will submit to working with practically anyone, without considering if it’s a good fit.
