Talent pipeline


Whether you’re growing, staying flat, or in any other state other than straight-out retreat … always be hiring. 

That doesn’t mean keep making job offers. 

It does mean get out there, meet new people, expand your network, keep your website attractive and up to date, make sure everything that’s on social media tells the story you want to promote, tell everyone you know to point interesting people in your direction, listen out for opportunities. 

It does mean seek out and be visible to the kind of people you want to hire next. 

Because it’s a competitive market. Because it’s easier to find good people when you don’t absolutely need them, and need them now. Because it’s better to be prepared than behind the curve. Because a full talent pipeline is a source of confidence and strength. 

Skippy strategy: Always look out for the next person you’d like to add to your team.
