Solve the People Puzzle: How High-Growth Companies Attract and Retain Top Talent, is available February 4, 2016, on Amazon. Written by TalenTrust CEO Kathleen Quinn Votaw, the book is directed at executives who are continuous learners and want to understand how to find and keep the talent they need to fuel their companies’ growth.
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.
Based on years of experience working with CEOs who understand that traditional staffing methods don’t work for today’s companies, in this book, Kathleen 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
