To hire top talent you must have something valuable to offer them. You probably think I am talking about valuables like salaries and benefits. No, these are not valuables, these are basic need requirements. Valuables are more substantive and far more important.
The valuables I’m referring to are 1) A sound business model, and 2) Great leadership.
No one wants to work for a company that can’t make money. And, no one wants to work for a company that doesn’t care about its people.
If you don’t have these core fundamentals in place, then hiring and retaining good people becomes problematic.
But, if you do have a solid business model in place and you are a great leader (or at least striving to become one), your ability to attract top talent increases dramatically!
