Top talent isn't enough

We write a lot about top talent. That’s because everyone wants top talent. Who wants to hire average talent, right?  It’s not that top talent is elusive – it’s always out there.

The need to hire and retain top talent is nothing new; it’s not a result of the Great Recession.  But changes within IT organizations – due in part to the weakened economy…

Four winning talent strategies for the New IT

It happened again. One of your top candidates for a job you're desperately trying to fill just called to inform you that he has decided to accept another offer.  You knew three offers were already on the table, but your clunky hiring process prevented you from making an offer sooner. Now, this highly qualified, highly skilled IT professional is going to work for a competitor.
