Talent Acquisition: Money is Muscle

By Mike Mayeux Tue, Mar 11,2014 @ AM

After 20+ years as a recruiter and 12 of that in RPO, I am often amazed at how conservative Chief level executives are about investing in their talent acquisition and human capital programs. This trend spreads across many industries, all sizes of companies and most position titles. It’s also interesting the pressure leaders place on the management class to get quality people onboard and meet hiring deadlines then strap them to incentive programs directly tied to retention. In essence the leaders say “Hire People real fast, but they have to be keepers”. You would have to be really lucky to consistently hire fast and maintain enduring matches.
