Agile Talent. Nine Essential Steps for Selecting Tomorrow's Top Talent
Remember these new rules of the game:
the selection criteria for tomorrow's talent could scarcely be more different than the ones used today,
selection based primarily on credentials, skills and knowledge will no longer suffice,
it is essential that you come to know your potential hires - who they are and what motivates them.
Executive recruiter, columnist and author Ralf Knegtmans offers nine essential steps companies need to follow to select tomorrow's top talent. He builds on his wealth of hands-on experience, his deep reading and research in the field and his interviews with visionary CEOs and frontline experts.
If you screen candidates according to his experience-tested plan outlined in Agile Talent, you will be able to select the very best people to guide your organisation in these turbulent times.
This book shows you how to zero in on the right people for the job, with little or no need for outside consultants to help you. Not merely meant for HR managers or recruiters, Agile Talent is of value to senior executives and anyone involved in the selection of top executives, managers and other employees - and to anyone facing a recruiter.
Agile Talent will help you find answers to these questions:
What are the selection factors for future-proof talent?
How can I tell whether a candidate who shows the hallmarks of an 'agile' talent will match the company's culture and strategic priorities?
Are there tools available to help me make objective decisions regarding my selection? Will these tools yield better predicions of future success?
Are case studies available of businesses at the forefront of hiring agile talent?
How can I spot agile talent already working for my company and how do I retain these talented people?
