1. ALIGN EXPECTATIONS
Tell your talent partner what you want. At Glocomms we often say that the close is at the start – in other words we manage tech professionals expectations from the very beginning and make sure they align with the role, which is why it is really important businesses know what they want.
2. THE NEED FOR SPEED
Don’t drag your heels - Top talent simply won’t wait around. Cut out inefficiencies, include putting hiring managers and HR in one round to decrease the number of interviews for example, and streamline processes to free up time and space to measure personal fit.
3. IT’S ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS
Being able to access and communicate with hiring managers from the very start makes such a difference because it is a great way to show those interviewing what the culture and team are really like. Be transparent, be human, and demonstrate what positive relationships look like.
4. DISCOVERY TIME
A discovery call, or a live role play often allows organisations to really explore a person’s proof points on their CV and dig into those achievements. It allows businesses to assess an individual, and stops both parties wasting time as they are open and honest with what they have done and need.
5. BE OPEN TO TALENT
Even if you’re not looking right now, the best talent tends to be passive, meaning when a good talent partner spots top tier tech professionals, they should be telling you about them immediately, instead of holding off until you have a job spec signed off. Consider the best talent, always.
At Glocomms, we partner with VC backed, early series A-B, to global giants, which means we benefit from an industry-leading portfolio spanning multiple sectors worldwide. With full visibility of the market, we know what competitors are doing and what tech professionals across different verticals really want, so we truly have the inside intel to help you boost your talent processes.
