- Look at what they know, as well as their past experiences
- Become a grower of talent

Hiring requires a marketing a sales approach: Stand out!

- What are your Unique Value Propositions?
- What can you offer future candidates based on the above information?

Find out what is important for your candidate: " If you were one of our employees, what criteria would you use to evaluate the quality of our business partnership?"

Our human resources do not all have the same needs:
- Living and working at home routines
- Social interactions
- Project collaboration
- Need for feedback
- Mentoring, coaching, and training
- The development of skills and competencies
- Professional Development
- Leadership vs Supervision

Human Resources are critical to increasing revenues, becoming more efficient and productive, while reducing costs.

High overhead turnover within an organization has a direct impact on net profits, one more reason to adopt a much more strategic approach in order to attract and retain talented workers.
