How to hire top leaders
1. Accelerate the learning curve
It takes time to understand company culture, learn about the products and become familiar with the customers. Attract top leaders by showing them how you will accelerate the learning curve during the onboarding process - enabling them to start delivering results immediately.
2. Be clear about the job role requirements
Top sales and business leaders will want to know how your company uses tools and targets to measure success. A recruitment consultant at Heron Talent recruitment agency can help you find exceptional candidates with an enticing job description that clearly states the targets and requirements of the role.
3. Keep up with the competition
Imagine you’re a leader in your field working at a well-known organization when you get scouted for a new job at a rival company. Changing companies and stepping into the unknown can be risky. Competitive salaries with excellent benefits can entice sought-after candidates to make the switch - especially if they've not begun a job search.
What do top leaders look for in a new role?
Experienced candidates have high expectations. Here are the most common questions top professionals consider when weighing up a new job opportunity:
Do the company’s aspirations align with my ambition?
Is the product or service competitive?
How experienced is the team?
Is the role set up to deliver good results?
What’s the relationship between the chairman of the board and the CEO on commercial issues?
Is the company ready to make sales and business development investments?
What’s the company culture like?
