There is no “silver bullet” in today’s recruiting world. To attract the best talent, organizations have to use a blended recruiting or “go to market” strategy.
To attract, hire, and retain the best, leaders need to ask themselves tough questions:

- What’s great about social recruiting and what about the new trends?
- Are all company leaders on the same page?
- When does recruiting start?
- How is the leadership team supporting recruiting efforts?
- Is recruiting really a priority?

- Who is on our recruiting team?
- What does the data indicate about the origin of our top talent?
