Great people are the key ingredient of any successful company. Numerous business leaders from Steve Jobs and Bill Gates to Richard Branson and Lawrence Bossidy have identified hiring people as their most important task and the secret to their success.
The trouble is though, great people are hard to find. Great people need to be able to cope with a dynamic and fluid business environment that didn’t exist ten or fifteen years ago. Great people need to be more tech savvy than ever before. Great people understand that corporate and social responsibility aren’t buzzwords for the careers page on the business website, they are fundamental parts of a businesses make up.
It makes no sense then that most businesses continue to try and recruit these people using the same methods that have consistently provided underwhelming results for years.
