COVID19 has certainly changed the recruiting landscape. Here are eight recruiting strategies and best practices that can help you fill key roles. Although the curve may be flattening, recruiting is still a challenge with lock downs, travel bans, and remote working. Candidates are also reluctant to take risks to move companies, especially if they are still being paid or are on, what is hopefully, a short-term furlough.

Spark Your Own Creativity

When our daily routines are geared toward barrelling through a to-do list, it can be hard to set the right conditions for creativity. Fortunately, there is a time-tested approach — that is also quite simple — for generating creative ideas.

The hiring process is fraught with potential disaster since a bad hire can set you back months or, at a minimum, cost you tens of thousands is wages and lost opportunity, so do not enter this process without some thought and planning.  If hiring is only one of your many urgent priorities, execute these top 3 must do's and you will significantly increase your probability of a successful hire.

Do you need to make some important hires to make your 2020 goals? Let me share how we find and get into conversations with top candidates, plus, how we ensure our clients successfully onboard the person they want.

Executives depend on the quality of their people to achieve their corporate and personal career goals. It is an old adage – and a true one – that the best jockey cannot win races if he only rides slow horses. A better understanding of the skills and abilities of executive recruiters will enable any manager to greatly increase the quality of his hiring decisions, and thereby enhance her own career!

You as the hiring manager or business owner hold the key to significantly increase the probability of a successful hire by ensuring that the process outlined below happens before someone posts the same old job ad or modifies a similar one from the internet. Taking time now could save you weeks, lots of money or, at the very least, many hours in screening resumes and interviews.

Job postings are a 'cross your fingers' and hope that your high potential top player is thinking of doing something new AND he/she happens to have some spare time to search through job postings. It does sometimes happen, but in today’s very low unemployment job market that same ‘A’ player has already been engaged by one or more recruiters. If one of the openings is a good fit and the recruiter is good at what they do, then their client will get the top person before this person even notices any job ads. So what can you do to get the top players?

Good people have choices in this employee marketplace.  Listed below are 10 common experiences that have caused candidates to judge a job, boss or company poorly and thus causing them to hesitate in taking the next step. For advice on how to plan for and avoid some of these common missteps, download our 'How to prepare for an interview in 20 minutes' at the end of this article.

10 ways to lose a top candidate:

Simple Questions - Personalized Answers - Life Changing Conversations
 Solve some of your biggest relationship challenges before they begin. Build a low conflict culture that takes a constructive approach to the change and conflict that is inevitable in any organization.

Stop Guessing is a world class program for relationship building, team building, on-boarding and self-awareness.

When he was a consultant Jim Whitehurst, CEO Red Hat, discovered something amazing,

“One of the most surprising aspects of that work was that people would open up to me, an outsider, about all the elephants in tIgnoring the Elephant in the Roomhe room — but they were too polite or embarrassed to call out the obvious issues or blame their peers inside their own organizations. My fellow consultants and I would sometimes joke that just about every individual inside a company could immediately tell you what was going wrong and what needed fixing. But whenever everybody convened for a meeting to point out those very issues, you wouldn’t hear a peep about anything that could be perceived as negative. To our amazement, they were more open to hearing feedback from us, the outsiders, than from their own colleagues.”

Though this phenomena is good for consultants, shouldn’t companies be having candid conversations on their own?
