Meeting Talent Where they Are, Not Where You Want Them to Be

The days of one-size-fits-all approach to HR needs to be over according to William Tincup, President & Editor-at-Large of RecruitingDaily during a recent session of ExecuNet Master Class. “Historically, in HR, we’ve looked at a cookie-cutter approach where what works for Sally is going to work for Tom, is going to work for Yolanda, etc. Those days are gone. In a knowledge-working environment, I think we have to solve for highly personalized experiences,” said Tincup.

“Talent wants to work differently,” says Tincup. You are not even going to know you are missing out on talent because they simply will not apply. Talent wins. The best way to understand is to leverage data and learn what talent wants…if you want to keep who you have and attract more tomorrow.

Listen as Tincup talks about this topic in this excerpt from a session of ExecuNet Master Class.
