Hiring Right™ will make it easier to hire great talent
With growing competition for the best candidates, attracting, closing, and retaining talent has become a critical success factor for organizations, and it can make the difference between a company that survives and thrives, and one that does not. The good news for you is that every organization – including your competitors – is facing the same challenges. That creates a massive opportunity: the first organization in a market or industry to adapt to those challenges and changes will create a commanding competitive advantage over other employers.
Over the course of Simon’s career, he has seen many changes in the world of recruitment. In recent years, however, those changes have become seismic. If you are involved in recruiting in any way, you need to adapt to this new world. You cannot afford to ignore the changes, and you cannot simply go on doing what you have always done.
