5 Lessons on How the Best Companies Recruit and Develop Talent

by Business Insider

Success is all about talent, and the best companies have turned finding and developing it into a fine-tuned machine.

Finding the right person for right position is always important, but it’s especially crucial for managerial positions and for early-stage companies with relatively few employees taking on many responsibilities. In an article for Business Insider, Randall J. Beck suggests the key to achieving the best results consistently lies in your company’s ability to rely on the systems and programs it has in place. In order to make sure those systems are reliable, they need to be built around five crucial elements, each supported by careful planning and focused on long-term success.

At the core of any productive system is a solid infrastructure, and Beck argues that two of the key elements – a talent auditing system and a functioning and up-to-date succession plan – are prerequisites for a company’s survival, ensuring that it has an accurate assessment of its current needs as well as a plan to allow it to quickly react and adjust to changes in the future. By putting in the work to develop a strong foundation now, you can help accelerate your company’s growth for years to come.
