- Continuously recruit – you want to be in the driver seat not the backseat.
- Clearly define what top talent means for your organization – do not just write it down but live it out each and every day.
- Create and strengthen your referral circles – utilize your employees, your advisors and your ‘marketplace’ to ensure you are an employer of choice.
Always look for top talent – it is an ongoing process, not just something you do when someone retires or resigns. Determine with your company leadership and employees what skill set, strengths and culture fit is critically important to grow your business. Never stop seeking the best and brightest to take you from where you are today, to where you envision yourself in the next year, three years, five years and ten years.
