In survey after survey, executives list attracting and retaining top talent as their #1 issue. While the people puzzle isn’t easy to solve, this book features compelling research, specific personal and client stories, and key perspectives from top business leaders and experts—all in a format that’s easy to read and prompts readers to act. It’s an executive’s guide to finding, keeping, and growing the best.
Kathleen Quinn Votaw has years of experience working with CEOs who understand that traditional staffing methods don’t work for today’s companies. In this book she offers advice on:
- keeping your employees engaged so they don’t leave
- cultivating new hires—Always Be Cultivating (ABC) by thinking of recruitment as a sales process
- attracting people who will thrive in your demanding, uncertain, entrepreneurial environment
- hiring for attitude and cultural fit first, and parting ways quickly if the fit isn’t right
In survey after survey, executives list attracting and retaining top talent as their #1 issue. According to the Vistage Small Business CEO survey, more than half of CEOs reported unfilled positions, 46 percent had trouble finding qualified people, and 24 percent had trouble finding candidates with a good cultural fit for their company.roth companies need people whose passion matches that of the company. It is not likely that everyone in the company will be a perfect match, but if your core team is not a match, you will never succeed.
