Recruiting Top Talent is Just the First Step

A business woman faces a huge group of hirees for potential talent

Managing talent effectively is an ongoing process. Recruiting is just the first step…but it is a necessary and crucial one to ensure that your talent management strategy starts off on the right foot.

Recruiting Top Talent

When you look to build a differentiated work force that can serve as your competitive edge, you need to take into account the kind of high performance organizational culture and employee brand you want to create—a culture that will support your business strategy and attracts, engages and retains the employees you need to be successful.

Your message as a recruiter should be consistent with your desired corporate culture. Think of recruitment as the first contact potential employees have with your company. This first contact should reflect your company’s true purpose, core values and desired way to do business. Be clear about the organizational culture you promote so you can engage the top performers you want from the very beginning that will drive your strategy forward.

Developing Top Talent

Talent management necessarily involves preparing your work force for the future as well as the present. Developing those “A” players requires looking ahead to what core competencies will be needed in order to stay current and competitive. And then, it requires offering relevant and targeted learning opportunities to help your employees thrive in the situations that matter most.

As a business leader, your efforts to help your employees learn and grow show your commitment to them. As you provide ways they can improve both personally and professionally, they show their appreciation in deeper engagement and dedication to the company.

Engaging and Retaining Top Talent

Employee engagement and retention is the final piece of an effective talent management strategy. The cost of turnover is high. The more you can engage your employees in their work, the less you will have to deal with and absorb the cost of their leaving. Retention is not only a money-saver; it also helps secure a high performing culture where each employee is valued for their contribution to the overall strategy.

Attract, engage, develop and retain the most outstanding and talented employees available. If you then support them as they progress along their chosen career path, they will stay and offer their energy, skills and commitment to the directions you have set for the organization.

Hyperion has a commitment to lifelong learning. LSA helps us provide the right business sales training, management training programs, and leadership development programs at the right time to meet the needs of both individuals and departments.

Understanding and conforming to legal compliance was very important to our company. We turned to LSA Global to provide a quality and cost effective way to ensure that we were AB 1825 compliant. Their interactive eLearning program was top-notch. It allowed our managers to learn at their own pace, and on their own time. The program was tailored to include our logo and our internal harassment policies. It was interactive and met all federal and state legal requirements. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company looking for an efficient and effective and top quality way to train their managers to be in compliance.

LSA’s consultant designed and delivered a half-day team building solution for our recent conference. It included careful customization to integrate the design with our new mission and values. Everyone had fun and identified key issues with our teamwork. Altogether a great program!

Harmonic has worked with LSA for over 8 years. We have found their partnership extremely beneficial. We recently implemented a Management Development Program that was designed and customized to support our company’s strategic initiative of hiring, building, and retaining key intellectual property and human talent. We worked closely with LSA to target and implement the right solutions with the greatest impact. I would recommend LSA to any company that’s looking for a trusted training and development partner.

Our company engaged LSA to do a specialized “train the trainer” program, and the consultant’s performance outdid our exceptionally high standards for such a program. Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals. Our facilitators continue to comment on the success of the program. Thanks also for the follow-up.
