Strategic Employee Branding, Staffing and Recruiting

Employee Branding, Candidate Assessment, Workforce Planning, and College Recruiting

“LSA’s Strategic Employee Branding, Staffing and Recruiting solutions are top notch.  We piloted a customized behavioral interviewing program aligned with our employee brand and talent strategy to help ensure that we continue to hire the best and brightest while we rapidly scale. LSA’s ability to understand our employee brand, staffing strategy and our unique culture combined with their desire to ensure that the best practices framework truly fits our performance environment and is highly adopted by our people is a real blessing. Most other firms want to just ‘give you training.’ Not LSA, they are focused on helping me hit our hiring forecasts and attract and retain top talent.”
Jennifer Remling | Director of Global Recruiting | AKQA

If you are like most fast growing companies, chances are that your staffing and recruiting process is not what it should or could be. To hit your ever increasing and shifting targets, you need it to be impactful, efficient, and strategic. From sourcing quality candidates to meeting hiring forecasts to employee and internal branding, an effective staffing and recruiting process is a complex challenge.

Best-in-class organizations execute each Strategic Employee Branding, Staffing and Recruiting phase efficiently and in alignment with their business and people strategy.

Strategic Employee Branding and Recruitment 

Strategic Employee Branding and Recruitment is an essential element of an effective recruiting function. Your employee brand is your corporate calling card. It impacts your recruiting, engagement, and retention of current, potential, and future employees.

When it comes to Strategic Employee Branding and Recruitment, we help growing companies:

  • Research and analyze current employee and recruitment brand perception among internal stakeholders and external targets
  • Develop employee brand strategies that align with the company’s recruiting, talent and growth strategies
  • Analyze and redesign their current recruiting website to better attract top talent

New Hire Candidate Assessment

Advanced technology, social media, and a shifting economy have increased the flood of resumes (both qualified and unqualified) that bombard applicant tracking systems. Today’s recruiting websites often lack proficient applicant screening tools and make it easier than ever to apply for a position.

The right applicant screening software can act as a first-level filter to eliminate potential candidates who fall short of the basic requirements for your positions.

When it comes to applicant and candidate assessment, we help growing companies:

  • Identify the best candidate screening and assessment approach to fit the company strategy, recruiting goals and volume of applicants.

Workforce Planning Process

Workforce planning is the process of deciding how many people you will need in a particular area in a certain period of time. And conversely, workforce planning is also about taking a hard look at the talent market and assessing how many people are available and how difficult it will be to hire them.

When it comes to workforce planning expertise, we help growing companies:

  • Put together a more effective workforce planning process
  • Provide recruiters with training and skills in workforce planning
  • Research and understand the availability of targeted talent

College Recruiting

College recruiting can be an important ingredient in your overall workforce plan and recruiting strategy…or not. Depending upon historical data, key recruiting metrics, and your hiring managers , it could also be a colossal waste of resources.

When it comes to college recruiting, we help growing companies:

  • Develop an effective college recruiting strategy
  • Improve or design a complete college recruiting program
  • Train their key hiring managers to be better college recruiters.

LSA Global has been a great partner in helping ServiceSource move toward its Vision of being “the leading developer of talent in the service performance management industry.” I have engaged LSA’s services to help develop best-in-class programs in the areas of: Executive On-boarding, Manager Training, Sales Training, Employee Engagement and Instructional Design. They have consistently met or exceeded my (very) high expectations and are always responsive to my needs.

Mike Normant
Senior Director, Training & Development

Service Source

We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding and measurement process. The process was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership. The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training and reinforcement made all the difference.  The pilot program in EMEA was a big success and the solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires. We are continuing to work with LSA Global to scale the program in other GEOs and expand to cover more roles at VMware.  I would recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally across VMware as we continue to scale.

Rochana Golani
Director, Global Field Readiness

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The systemic approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to executing our business and people strategies.

We turned to LSA Global to help take our behavioral interviewing process to the next level in terms of both efficiency and effectiveness. LSA quickly understood our unique culture and challenging requirements.  They immediately helped us to improve our ability to continue to hire top talent that fits our culture and talent management strategy as we rapidly scale.

We engaged LSA to design and deliver a 6-month custom executive coaching program for a group of our key leaders. The focus of the program was to help a core group of senior leaders to leverage previous investments in management training, to ensure the engagement and retention of key employees, and to push critical strategic initiatives forward. Even with the high expectations of our senior people, LSA has completely exceeded our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone looking to create and implement a custom coaching methodology using proven tools to drive true change.

Ivan Fukumoto
Senior HR Manager - Staffing, Training, & Development

Thank you to LSA Global for their partnership and support in helping us to design and roll-out our valuable management development training program. I personally have partnered with LSA Global at four of my previous companies. It continues to be a delight working with LSA. We look forward to partnering with them at Blackhawk Networks for future training and consulting needs.

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our talent management needs has been a real blessing. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of offerings to meet the changing needs of an organization, having an external partner who understands our business and our culture and offers everything from a wide range of open enrollment programs to customized organizational development consulting is almost as good (and in some cases better than) having your own internal Training and Organizational Development function.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

We consistently receive positive feedback about the quality of the LSA Leadership Training Programs and LSA facilitators. We recognize and appreciate the hard work LSA always goes through to align to our unique culture and meet our specific requirements. Thank you for regularly going above and beyond to design solutions to meet our needs. Your support and dedication, both on the strategic and tactical side, have been outstanding!

As a Training Outsourcing Partner, LSA consistently saves me time and money by designing the right solutions and quickly bringing us the best experts to solve key business problems in a way that works for our unique culture. Their methodology and resources are fantastic and allow us to deploy better solutions faster. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to raise the talent bar with a true strategic partner.

Tim Bonnet

Dimension Data

The action-learning leadership project has been very beneficial to me, our leadership team, and the entire organization. The balance of development and results has been excellent. We have made huge progress, and I was also able to identify 2-3 high potentials while having the extra benefit of people stepping up to carry strategic projects forward. The Staff is very appreciative and has become very comfortable with both the program and the process. It is still going better than anticipated, and I have been very pleased.

Heather Feltman

We partnered with LSA Global to help us invest in our people. LSA designed a modular and customized management curriculum that allows us to deliver top quality solutions to our managers and leaders. We consider LSA to be our learning and development partner and our LSA consultants to be an extension of our team.

LSA brought a very effective training design, and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training. As a fast growing company with a geographically dispersed workforce, their expertise in this area was invaluable to us in driving consistency, creating a sense of belonging for our employees, and developing a common language for all of us to use.

I’m not sure if I’ve run across a company that can match the depth and quality of LSA’s consultants and facilitators. I highly recommend LSA to anyone seeking a strategic training outsourcing and consulting partner to improve performance.

The customized new hire on-boarding process, coaching, tools, and measurement have provided a very useful structure and frame for the first 90-days for both me and our new hires. It has been a very positive experience from my perspective and will make it much easier to on-board my new hires.

Martyn Storey

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with LSA on the design and delivery of the experiential new employee on-boarding training. I’ve been getting tons of positive unsolicited feedback. You truly exceeded everyone’s expectations.
