A few years back I spent a considerable amount of time focused on designing and managing various partner resourcing programs and offers to assist partners with their ability to recruit, hire, train and retain talent. So, it makes me extremely excited to see the availability of a refreshed set of resources concentrated on talent management.
Industry research and practical experience show that finding, hiring, and retaining top talent are keys to your company’s success. The cost of making a great hire may seem high, but the cost of making a poor hire or no hire at all is even higher.
Leveraging best practices and applying practical tools can turn need-driven reaction into an effective talent acquisition process. And in turn, streamline the time, dollars, and resources it takes to turn the talent you acquire into tangible value for your company.
Recognizing the real-time challenges you face in running a competitive consulting practice, Microsoft has created a suite of business-specific tools and resources to facilitate your talent acquisition process.
