March Madness is here so let the fun begin. As an avid college basketball fan, mother of a college basketball athlete, coach, mentor and leader, I can say with certainty that talent wins games and makes teams competitive. That said, just as coaches use data to choose players, recruiters too need data to ensure the best talent is chosen for the team.
Data driven recruiting strategies start with identifying an accurate, on target talent pool, filled with relevant contact and profile information. This data is then used to compare the professionals who are part of the pool so that only the superstars, the ideal candidates make the cut. This part of the recruiting process is one of the most crucial step since it is the feeder to the candidate pipeline and ultimate recruit. Without a doubt, data has a purpose in recruiting top talent and is truly an asset necessary to recruit priority talent to include diversity. This research data takes the guess work out of talent availability, showing who is part of the talent pool and who is not.
When building competitive teams, it is all about first knowing who you need; (the job specification), who you know, (who is in the talent pool), the identification of the super stars (recruiting vetting) and presenting the most qualified for the role (those who can make an immediate positive impact to the team).
Whether you are a college coach or a recruiter looking for the best talent, data provides the competitive advantages and an unbeatable edge. From the court to the corporate office, having access to the right talent pool is the pathway to success. Net, net, research data has its place in the recruiting process and is proven to create recruiting efficiency.
