True or False: I hire smart people and trust they’ll figure out what do to rather than looking for Drones to fill the seats in my shop.

True or False: My existing talent pool is always my first line of defense in filling key roles that become available in my organization.

If the first statement is true, shouldn’t the second one be too? In a perfect world, yes. But we know that isn’t always the case, and unfortunately employee development is often overlooked when organizations are forming their talent strategies.

Join hiring smart (people) experts Kris Dunn and Kelly Dingee for Brains Before Bros: Why Hiring Smart People over Experienced People is a Winning Talent Strategy, sponsored by our friends at SumTotal, on Wed. June 12 at 1pm EST and they’ll hit you with the following:

  • A rundown of the factors driving talent scarcity in today’s workforce and why it’s better to hire smart people and train for success.
  • FOT’s definition of “smart” and common false positives you need to consider when defining what smart looks like for your organization.
  • Three signs that your top talent may be looking to jump ship and how to reel them back in by providing the incentives they really want. (Hint: It’s not always monetary).
  • Five ways to keep training and development programs aligned with evolving expectations from top applicants and your existing talent – without breaking your budget.
  • We’ll close this webinar by bringing in Steve Parker from SumTotal to help you ensure your leadership team is creating the right environment to get the most out of your existing talent.
