Build A Talent Pipeline To Take Your Recruiting To The Next Level
This where a talent pipeline comes in. Partnering with a talent development organization provides consistent access to high-quality candidates while providing talented young adults who have historically been disconnected from work and higher education with opportunities to apply their skills and add value to your company. Building a pipeline through partnership adds business value in three big ways:
- Avoiding the costs of a bad hire: Leaders want recruiters to have a comprehensive recruitment strategy in place- but fewer than half of recruiters do. A comprehensive strategy allows recruiters to align their practices with larger business goals, including improved cost efficiency, employee engagement, and diversity. Strategically building a talent pipeline allows a company to avoid the costs of bad hires by working with a partner organization that provides candidates who are already vetted, trained, and excited to build a career at your company.
- Providing a consistent source of talent: A pipeline is a consistent source of high-quality talent, and business leaders consider consistent quality hires as critical to their company’s success. Talent development partner organizations train young adults in market-relevant skills that meet your business needs, setting your company up with a strong pipeline of skilled candidates. Through a partnership, your company can benefit from these young adults’ skills, desire to learn and add value to your company, and diverse perspectives.
- Accessing untapped sources of talent: Business leaders rely on recruiters to provide the strategic thinking about what capabilities new talent could bring to the company. Only one-third of recruiters are effective at providing this strategic support, according to HBR’s data. Partnering with a talent development organization can open your company to skillsets and talents you may not have previously considered. Opportunity Youth bring with them a wealth of experience, determination, and eagerness to learn. If you’ve been struggling to identify exactly what your talent pool has been missing, consider partnering with a talent development organization; it could help you see more possibilities.
