Are you looking for attractive talents in the wrong way?
Spent last evening on a seminar by Grant Thornton and one of the problems that was discussed was how hard it is to find the right talents today. It will be even harder in the near future. To me it’s all about what you are looking for and how you are looking.
If ambition, personal strengths, credibility, potential and unique qualities are not at the top of your list when you are looking for new talents, you will never find them. You should attract the irreplaceable who constantly challenges the mediocre – those who deep inside know that they can change the way things work. People with potential who probably never had to write a CV. Many see things the way they are, these people see things as it could be.
Recruitment will be done in new ways from now on. Start considering the reputation of top executives as a way to attract talented people.
