If you’re not innovative in your communication with talent, they will not be inspired to take on your mission.
After 20 years in this business, we can say unequivocally that if you don’t develop an overall strategy first before you start building your team, you will lose the best and brightest talent to competitors who do.
We all know innovation is essential to business success, and human capital is the key to business innovation. The challenge is that “design innovation” transcends all industries, which means businesses are all competing for the same top talent.
As if that wasn’t enough, this challenge is made infinitely harder for two reasons:
1. Because of the high demand, it’s a talents’ market. And your best talent wants the works: quality of culture, quality of life, opportunity to grow and expand. They want you to pull a rabbit out of a hat and then turn it into a unicorn before they sign on with you, since that’s essentially what you’re asking of them.
2. Meanwhile, “innovation” is a broad topic. Without crystal clear clarity on the company goals, and strategic path to achieving those goals, finding the right match is virtually impossible. Unfortunately, most recruitment firms will go straight to the search before identifying the parameters for success within the greater context of your business.
We developed our IDeology Strategies methodology out of the ever increasing need to attract and retain top talent.
Our clients can’t afford to drag out the process, lest they lose the next Steve Jobs to their competitors. Recruit better talent, faster, and more efficiently, without wasting precious time going down the wrong path.
Building a team that is truly innovative requires an innovative process. At Yeh IDeology we practice what we preach: We are innovators of talent.
"What really excites me about strategizing corporate innovation teams is the potential to influence long term company growth. Organizations that don’t fully realize their capabilities stifle their own potential. I’ve found that developing the innovation department is a catalyst for company-wide transformation.”
