Remember these new rules of the game:
The selection criteria for tomorrow’s talent could
scarcely be more different than the ones used today.
Selection based primarily on credentials, skills and
knowledge will no longer suffice.
It is essential that you come to know your potential
hires – who they are and what motivates them.
Executive recruiter, columnist and author Ralf Knegtmans
offers nine essential steps companies need to follow to
select tomorrow’s top talent. He builds on his wealth of
hands-on experience, his deep reading and research in the
field and his interviews with visionary CEOs and frontline
experts. If you screen candidates according to his experience-
tested plan outlined in Agile Talent, you will be able
to select the very best people to guide your organisation
in these turbulent times. This book shows you how to zero
in on the right people for the job, with little or no need for
outside consultants to help you. Not merely meant for HR
managers or recruiters, Agile Talent is of value to senior
executives and anyone involved in the selection of top
executives, managers and other employees – and to
anyone facing a recruiter.
Agile Talent will help you find answers to these questions:
What are the selection factors for future-proof talent?
How can I tell whether a candidate who shows the
hallmarks of an ‘agile’ talent will match the company’s
culture and strategic priorities?
Are there tools available to help me make objective
decisions regarding my selection? Will these tools yield
better predictions of future success?
Are case studies available of businesses at the forefront
of hiring agile talent?
How can I spot agile talent already working for my
company and how do I retain these talented people?
