Accordingly to international research, and our very own Dr Rhema Vaithianathan of Auckland University, New Zealand managers are amongst the worst in the world at recruiting great talent, nurturing and promoting that talent, and managing poor performance when things get sticky. At Talent Magnet, we are committed to doing something about that. Through our partnership approach we develop core recruitment and selection competencies in the hiring managers we work with. In addition, we have designed offerings to support NZ managers become Talent Magnets by being better at attracting, integrating and managing talent for performance and retention.
Employer branding is getting personal. It’s generally accepted that the number one reason most people leave their job is the relationship with their direct manager, yet this is only third on the list when they make the decision to accept the job in the first place. Company reputation comes in at #1 and the job at #2. We work with progressive organisations to balance the books on that score through the deliberate creation of Talent Beacons, managers and leaders who have the personal pulling power to draw in mission critical talent through their industry profile, personal reputation, acknowledged expertise and strong networks. And the positive impact isn’t just on your employer brand!
