As I like to say, focus on people first, they matter the most. This is essential when leading your current teams and it is also of great importance when recruiting new employees. Don’t rely on the traditional way of hiring and finding talent. Posting a position on your HR website (in addition to few other websites) is no longer enough to find exceptional talent and leadership. Instead, leverage your networks of colleagues and friends to get the word out and in this process be on the lookout for those who stand out. Always look to recruit the best you can get even when you may not have an open position at that time. Begin cultivating relationships and reverse engineer the process to find a way to attract top talent to your teams.
Remember, never stop hiring.
