It’s difficult and time consuming trying to identify the right talent for your business before hiring, not just from a skillset point of view but also personal outlook, fit with the team and company ethos as well as future potential, before hiring them.
At the point of hire in traditional recruitment, a lot of time and money has been spent on composing the vacancy, advertising it, potentially engaging recruitment agencies, a contract has been drawn-up, payroll has been set-up – all without knowing if the individual is a good fit in all areas and has the potential to grow.
If there is a ‘miss-match’ there is not only a cost implication but also a decrease in team moral.
Surely a ‘try before you buy’ works for both sides. Enter Growing Talent! Now I know what some employers may think who have not been involved in anything like this before…”the unemployed never work out”, “there is no commitment from the unemployed – they’re used to not working”.
As the saying goes – the proof is in the pudding – as many naysayers have found.
Alex, on the current programme with Portico, recently had his first appraisal. After just a few short weeks on site, he’s exceeded expectations in all areas. Outstanding feedback from the team is a natural self esteem booster. Alex is looking forward to the remaining training ahead. Already, he’s been identified as a perfect addition to the team – something the employer would not have secured without Growing Talent.
Why aren’t all employers recruiting through Growing Talent? I’d love to know…
