Empty Seats Are Like Open Wounds

No comments

Scott's Monday Morning MessageIn an organization, an empty seat is like an open wound. It’s a painful distraction that interferes with the business’s core mission.

When there’s an empty seat, the work must either be redistributed or left undone, resulting in stress, costs, delays, and lost opportunity, as well as lower revenue.

What’s more, hiring to fill empty seats can take weeks or months, adding strain and extra costs.

This is why I’ve launched a new LinkedIn Group, called ZERO-TO-FILL. Members of ZERO-TO-FILL are committed to hiring that is faster and more accurate. Our shared vision? All jobs and assignments get filled with quality talent the day they open.

WHO MAY JOIN ZERO-TO-FILL:

  • Staffing and recruitment professionals
  • Talent acquisition and human resource leaders
  • Executives from vendors who provide hiring-related technologies and solutions

Currently, the group is accepting requests to join. Discussions will begin on July 15, 2015.

ZERO-TO-FILL will always be a supportive place to learn, share ideas, and improve the status quo.

Time-to-fill should be zero. This group brings together the parties who can make that happen.

To submit your request to join, go to:

Scott's Monday Morning MessageCan your company instantly fill any open seat? When you achieve a zero time-to-fill, which I call ZERO-TO-FILL, you can.

Waiting for Talent is Unacceptable

Scott's Monday Morning MessageWe live in an on-demand world. Every day, we access more and more products and services at the click of a mouse, touch of a button, or by dialing our phones. Many companies have installed apps, websites, and other devices allowing their employees to order food, report updates, and procure supplies the moment they are needed. This same convenient access must be applied to acquiring talent.

“Downloading” the next hire should not be a reactive process where people access resumes to begin a search. Every company can increase the flow of candidates. When a more substantial pool of talent is combined with better selection, interviewing, and quality checks, companies can build a Talent Inventory, people that are ready to go the moment they are needed.

Quick and decisive hiring (filling roles with greater speed, more accuracy, and less effort) should be a non-negotiable standard for leaders to keep their jobs.
