Moving the Needle to Attract Top Talent

Our clients regularly tell us that they’re seeking “A Players” and “Rockstars” to join their teams. Both are overly used (and some would argue dreadful) cliches, but we all know what they’re talking about. They want the best available talent that will have an immediate impact to increase sales, cut costs, improve efficiencies, develop new products, and gain market share. Ideally, they want the “best of the best”.

Is the organization truly ready to bring on the “best of the best”? The “War for talent” dates to 1997. Identifying quality talent is not the hard part. Attracting and getting top talent to engage in a meaningful conversation relative to making a career move is. So how is that accomplished?
