Every company wants to create the highest quality workforce in order to obtain or maintain their competitive edge in the market. But this is often easier said than done. How do you do this?
Topgrading talent is the culmination of several of our advisory services and retained executive search. Our clients don’t waste their precious time sifting through reams of un- or under-qualified candidates. Our process is proven to produce top quality talent for tactical and strategic leadership positions through C-level roles. We work with our clients to establish or improve the talent acquisition and talent management processes, focusing on locating, hiring, retaining, and growing the BEST talent for your organization.
Our patented BEST BEHAVIORS® along with our proven strategies that combine both best and next practices form the foundation of driving top talent to our clients. We work with our clients on effective onboarding strategies that form the foundation of strong employee engagement, collaborate to drive additional strategies to retain employees, and then develop workforce planning and succession planning strategies to grow that talent enhancing our clients innovation and creativity necessary to continuously improve in this ever changing business environment.
It can happen to even the BEST run companies. Productivity, sales, or other department metrics begin tracking backwards. What once was thought to be a strong set of professionals is showing decline in the quality of their work and efforts. If as a leader you find yourself facing a crossroads with a section of your organization, BEST will collaborate with you to develop a Topgrading program to identify the contributing factors, assess who are the A, B and C players, and develop the processes to promote, transfer or hire in the appropriate “A” strength talent to restructure the team.
Topgrading was first developed by Brad Smart as an interviewing philosophy to seek out the highest quality workforce by ensuring that talent acquisition only focuses on the most talented and well-rounded performers.
Topgrading can be especially effective in developing new teams to launch products, services or industry initiatives. BEST will collaborate in advance with those leading these initiatives to proactively recruit the internal and/or external “A” players who successfully achieve the objectives of these initiatives.
