Revitalize Hiring and Retention - Building a Compelling Talent Brand
There’s no question that the school workforce was hit hard by the pandemic. The old (often passive) recruitment efforts —dusting off the job description and posting it in the usual places— are no longer enough. We can help you create more robust, year-round recruitment practices and build a compelling, differentiating talent acquisition and retention brand.
We include assessing your current recruitment and candidate management practices, crafting the unique story of how your community provides exceptional career (and life!) opportunities as well as gathering feedback to inform how evaluation and professional development offerings can better meet current workforce needs and provide opportunities to grow internal talent.
By the end of the process, you will have a clear talent acquisition and retention strategy and a customized talent brand toolkit.
In collaboration with
Deliverables include a detailed report and a workshop on how to use your talent brand toolkit.
The most well articulated and thoughtful evaluation system is worthless if it mainly lives in your employee handbook. We work with you to both reimagine and implement a nimble evaluation system as a retention tool with goals of developing internal talent, focusing on professional growth and creating opportunities for current employees to climb the ladder. We work with you to look at the current system, identify what works, what doesn’t, and how it’s connected to moving your strategy goals forward. We will also engage faculty and staff about the kinds of feedback they find the most helpful for both their work at the school and to meet personal professional growth goals. We then collaborate with you to build and implement a system that can be a vibrant aspect of school life, strengthening relationships, creating new leaders from within and bolstering a sense of mission-driven purpose for employees.
