Connect with the people who will advance your goals. An engaged workforce dramatically impacts how well you deliver on your mission and promise, organizational performance, and employee satisfaction. So how do you build this top-tier workforce?
Let’s face it: the best people out there—the ones you want—well, they’re already employed. You have to give them a reason to believe, to make the switch. That requires positioning yourself as a career destination—fostering your image over time and building a strong employment reputation.
That doesn’t mean being everything to everyone or selling a bill of goods. It means understanding, truthfully, what you are and what you want to achieve. It means finding and keeping the kinds of people who are (and, dare we say, are not) aligned with you and able to advance your organization.
So be proactive, keep your eye on the ball, and you can …
