No need to panic; we all have had to fine tune this process, and have even stunk at it in the past. How can we make sure we learn the lessons and begin attracting, recruiting and retaining those A+ Players?

No need to panic; we all have had to fine tune this process, and have even stunk at it in the past. How can we make sure we learn the lessons and begin attracting, recruiting and retaining those A+ Players?

  1. 1. Define what an A-B-C player looks like within your organization and communicate throughout the ENTIRE organization. State what having the right players on your team means to the success of your organization, and what the wrong players mean to your detriment. Think in terms of $$$ and overall morale. Make it a part of your dialogue, both internally and externally. It must become a part of your culture, who you are and march your vision.
  2. Determine who is responsible for the process. How it will be implemented and communicated throughout the ENTIRE organization. Also, develop a training protocol for success. Define expected outcomes, and make sure they match your mission.
  3. Discuss expectations with everyone on the team and what attributes or skills are critical to measure for recruiting and retaining the correct people within the organization. This includes your recruitment firm. Also, define metrics that will measure the success of the organization and marry them to your values.
  4. Decide how you will find these candidates. Whether using internal or external sources. If using external sources, they must also be on board and understand how you define your hiring strategy for A+players. Also create tools, that make it easy for those interviewing and hiring so everyone becomes clear on how candidates will best compliment and execute team strategies.
  5. Train on the message and implement the tools. Measure your success using well defined metrics. Also, make sure you are getting feedback from your organization on a regular basis. If you think once a year is enough, you’re wrong. Ensure everyone is executing well on employer branding tactics.
