Bob Broady, President of BroadReach Search Partners – A member of the Sanford Rose Associates® network of offices, Featured in Monster, Keeping Your Talent Pipeline Warm During a Hiring Freeze
Plano, TX 5/14/2020
Just a few months ago, many recruiters were faced with a talent shortage. Today, it’s a completely different job market, with many talented professionals out of work and recruitment professionals faced with a hiring freeze. The conundrum is that recruiters might not be in a position to do any hiring right now.
But that doesn’t mean that your recruiting activity should be on hold. In fact, experts say that this is the perfect time to work on building and nurturing your talent pipeline.
What’s more, many of the seasoned and successful companies realize that as serious as this COVID-19 situation is, it will eventually pass, says Bob Broady, president of Broad Reach Search Consultants – Sanford Rose Associates, a health care recruiting company.
“While no one knows the exact date, wise leaders can project that when that day comes, a few things will be true: Their sales teams will be behind on their numbers and will need to make up for lost time; many of their clients will be looking for consultative guidance, advice, and flexibility in order to return to a new normal; the companies who have the sales folks hired, on-board and trained, will be their first and will be rewarded with a boom of business,” he says.
