On this week’s edition of “The Customer Mission” on The WAM Podcast, host, Andrea Olson, is advising listeners about talent attraction and retention, an important conversation for many manufacturers who have a hard time recruiting and keeping skilled talent in their organizations. Perhaps it’s time to investigate whether we are approaching the hiring process correctly because attracting the right pool of candidates is crucial.
What we’ve discovered is that it is often in the smaller details where companies go wrong. The hiring landscape has changed so drastically that the strategies that worked twenty years ago are no longer applicable and new methods for finding the appropriate employees should be explored. A rigid checklist of qualities and qualifications often prove ineffective because the lane becomes too narrow and potentially great candidates can be discarded. Andrea shares insights on how to overcome these obstacles, discussing and providing solutions to the eight most common mistakes that companies make in the hiring process.
