Topgrading & Rhythm - Weapons to Win the Talent War

Jenny Rodriguez-Vargas, Workforce Optimization Partners and Chris Cosper, Rhythm Systems

Unemployment rates are at a 17-year low, making the labor market more competitive than ever. And according to the Brookings Institute, nearly 40% of middle market firms say lack of talent is constraining their ability to grow. This competitive environment can cause you to hire too quickly or overlook obvious misalignments between your candidates and your company. The cost of mis-hires can have a staggering impact on your bottom line. This is a universal issue that all companies in all industries must master. However, there are simple and practical strategies to win the war to attract, retain and grow top talent.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The power and purpose of Job Scorecards
  • The predictability of hiring success when using Topgrading techniques
  • How to create an environment where A-players can thrive over time
