CPI’s Chris Tury talks Essentials required to acquire, deploy, and retain a successful workforce

Transforming Talent Acquisition in today’s environment centers on a process that ensures employee engagement, productivity and retention. The objective is connecting top talent with the right opportunity and inspiring talent through the alignment with the company’s culture. Most of all, it’s understanding an empowered workforce’s desire for flexibility, creativity and purpose.

There are numerous talent acquisition methods that are practiced today, but many do not properly achieve the above stated objectives. To conform to the rapidly changing business environments and compete meaningfully for the best talent requires innovative ways of recruiting and onboarding. How companies set the stage for individuals in new roles is imperative for the long-term success of each new hire. The journey to this success is accomplished through understanding organizational expectations and priorities, while creating and executing strategic recruiting plans. This is not about just sourcing, interviewing and hiring.

The recruiting process that is used by Career Partners International, Texas and provided to client companies is a proprietary process called Performance, Integration, Engagement, Retention (PIER); a proven process used to create a 100% opportunity for success.

The first objective is to focus on Performance – Clearly identifying the performance expectation for the position and fully vetting the requirements with leadership prior to candidate sourcing. The sourcing plan has to be focused and consistent. The interview process is focused on the stated priorities and thoroughly evaluated by the leadership team. Clearly define what success looks like now and in the future for this position.

The second objective is Integration – Concentrating on effectively integrating the new employee into their position and organization. This is accomplished through an onboarding process focused on the position priorities and integrating effectively with related personnel. Utilizing a professional onboarding coach and process for the first 90 days of employment and onboarding significantly enhances the employee’s performance and retention.

The third objective is Engagement – Effectively integrating the employee into the organization and aligning their strengths with position objectives is essential. Continued development opportunities and positive communication lead to an engaged employee.

This leads into the final objective, Retention – The application of the previous steps prompts higher rates of retention. The cost of turnover is 150% of the positions compensation. Companies that focus on retaining productive, engaged employees experience a higher ROI from their talent. Transforming the company’s talent acquisition process to a comprehensive and cohesive plan will significantly improve employee retention.

To achieve the PIER objectives, Career Partners International Texas begins with the development of a Position Success Profile (PSP), identifying and vetting the priorities in the position for the new incumbent. Emphasize determining what success looks like in this role and pinpoint required backgrounds for candidates to ensure the required capabilities can be met. Attention to quality sourcing related to the PSP requirements is a priority through every stage of the process. Set up an interview process that focuses on the stated PSP priorities and cultural fit of the candidates and create an environment in the interview to properly sell the position and organization to the candidates.

To manage this process effectively, our organization uses exclusive technology and implements dashboards and metrics that facilitates the process and evaluates the recruiting process. It is also essential that the right leader manages the overall process.

Establishing the POSITION SUCCESS PROFILE (PSP) – Effective SOURCING – A strategic INTERVIEW PROCESS – A HIRING PROCESS that reinforces expectations and promotes opportunity – A well planned and executed ONBOARDING PROGRAM for the first 90 days.

Properly executed these 5 steps are essential to Transforming the Talent Acquisition Process and achieving a 100% opportunity for success.
