Looking for workforce solutions to hire top talent and build a better workforce? Check out EBSCO’s six-part blog series, The Ultimate Guide to Building a Better Workforce, content courtesy of Accel5®.

After hiring for success and finding the top talent available, an important contributor to retaining your staff is dedicating time to learning and developing their skills. This leads to their professional development and ultimately, a more productive team of employees. The Ultimate Guide to Building a Better Workforce: Tips and Best Practices for Training and Developing Top-Performing Employees, will feature information and tips from Accel5® on hiring for success, corporate learning on a budget, training and development by learning styles, crafting a leadership training program, how to save time with microlearning, and recruiting and retaining millennials.

“Hiring for Success” was featured on our blog in May 2019, How to Hire for Success: Tips from Accel5. If you missed it, you can read it now or download a pdf from the link below.

Included are ideas from thought leaders on how to hire for success, attract top talent, narrow your pool of viable candidates to a short list, be willing to negotiate to gain the best hires and make a final offer your best candidate will accept.

Following WWII through the 1970’s, most open positions were filled by internal candidates – as many as 90 percent.

Hiring new employees is a critical task for any organization. “…everything but tea leaves,” that is how Peter Cappelli, Wharton School Professor of Management, described the hiring process in use, often through third-party consultants, to find new hires in the Harvard Business Review article, Your Approach to Hiring is All Wrong (available in Accel5). Following WWII through the 1970’s, most open positions were filled by internal candidates – as many as 90 percent. From then until now, that number has dropped to 28 percent, which leaves companies dependent upon their own or third-party hiring processes, neither of which have great stats on whether they lead to successful employees. However, with the right process, you can recruit new hires that are the ideal fit for your organization.
