Do you want Messi on your team? Reactive recruiting practices will always mean you are playing catchup. With good planning, and the right tools, your team can operate much more effectively and a small number of focused people can transform your business.
It’s not about how many people you have, its about how good they are. It’s about what training they’ve had. Its about what tools are available and how they use them. Give a team of 10 recruiters a forecast for 2017 and the same tools / training as a team of 20 who are working reactive mode and performance wise they’ll be smashed out of the park. That’s a fact my friends. They’ll remove talent from the market place faster than you can say where the hell has Sam Allardyce gone?! They’ll have talent pipelines built, pre-sourced, pre- assessed, pre-selected and ready to offer before the team of 20 have whipped out their briefing form.
