From acquisition to retention
In 2015, talent acquisition is tougher than ever, as the cream of the employable crop discover their power as consumers of jobs, rather than feeling at the mercy of their employees. Not only this, but once you succeed in recruiting the best available talent into your company's key roles, the battle doesn't end. Retention, in our times of fast-paced job-hopping and next best things, is more challenging than it's ever been before. Nowadays, the average UK citizen will have between 10 and 14 jobs in their lifetime. So when it comes to recruiting for your workplace, thinking ahead and considering retention as part of your ongoing engagement strategy is absolutely essential. After all, there's no point in bringing in new recruits until you've made sure that you're not needlessly losing perfectly good current employees through lack of engagement.
