There’s got to be a better way, intro Talent Pools.
Talent pools and pipelines are becoming the biggest solution to this problem. At Create + Adapt, we believe that planning ahead to find the right candidate with the right credentials can help you to alleviate and avoid these challenges. Always pushing boundaries and making lives simpler! Being proactive about your recruitment strategy can help you to fill open and future roles with way more efficiency.
Talent pooling is all about building relationships with the best candidates well in advance of upcoming job openings. This builds familiarity and trust and prevents you from frantically trying to fill a seat and cover workload. Impersonal databases and selecting candidates from massive lists are not going to work effectively. Talent pools feature real, talented people who are the right fit for your unique brand culture and are genuinely interested in working for your company.
