SGA Talent Acknowledges The Exceptional Women Leaders Who Lead The Top Diversified Companies

Every month SGA Talent releases studies and reports which are part of assignments the team has worked on in the past. This month we are preparing to release “Who’s Who Among The Top Diversified Companies.”

Retained by a well renowned global diversified organization, our team was tasked with conducting a succession planning & diversity project. Our mission was to identify leadership teams and build organization charts three levels down from each leader. Once this was completed and shared with our client, our team began gathering profiles, conducting talent comparisons and obtaining contact details of those professionals who made the list. Now in review by our client, we have been asked to begin engaging and building talent communities with the intent to fill future vacancies. With a target list of over 200 organizations, we are sharing with our readers, the companies who were part of Venture Radar‘s top list of diversified companies, focusing solely on the United States.

As we prepare for this month’s release, I wanted to first share and congratulate the outstanding women leaders from the top diversified companies listed below. Congrats to all who made the list!

Recruiting Efforts Can Be Continuous Even When There Is Not An Immediate Opening









“Recruiting” efforts can be continuous even When there is not an immediate opening

Set a goal to continue to build your database and network with solid candidates who are engaged!


We learn early on that in order to be a strong recruiter, the need to continuously build relationships and networks is a must.  We also learn the importance of staying in touch with professionals we like, want to help and believe can help us. Recruiting efforts can be continuous even if there is NOT an immediate opening. It can easily be done if you make networking part of your daily routine.

Unfortunately many recruiters  fall prey to habits that focus only  on filling the pipeline, getting the hire and moving on. Why? Why should all of your recruiting efforts, relationships, conversations, fall by the way side, be forgotten, become lost in the black hole of an Reviews on a number of ATS systems? Instead, incorporate “staying in touch” and engaging techniques as a way to keep your recruiting efforts continuous. Allow yourself the ability to continuously build upon your Leverage your strong network of professionals. Learn to get engaged, be engaged and stay engaged with those professionals who you believe will someday be a great candidate and networker for you. 

Sounds difficult, somewhat time-consuming? It doesn’t have to be. Allow your ATS and other recruiting tools to become your friend beyond recruiting for the current job(s). Don’t let it just be a way to connect and stay organized for current roles. But allow these tools to help you stay connected after the roles are filled. 

5 Easy Steps To  Stay Connected & Engaged 

  • Start by sending an email or text to all you have spoken with regarding the successful completion of the assignment.
  • Create a 30-45 Day Letter – Send an email or text to those who you considered to be the “A” Players in this space. Those you connected with on prior engagements. The letter can simply include an interesting article about the industry or a trend. It must be something you found interesting and believe others will t00.
  • Create a 60 -90 Day Letter – Send an email or text regarding what you may be working on to see if they may know of someone. Let them know you have them on your radar screen. Tell them how you wish to stay engaged with them regarding opportunities since you recognize them as being talented and among the wanted.
  • Create a 90-120 Day Letter – send out an email or text wishing them a Happy Holiday, or something that states I hope you are enjoying the season. It can also be a great time to ask if there is anything YOU may be able to assist them with?
  • Be sure you are LinkedIn with everyone you want to stay engaged with.

SGA Talent Recruiting can be continuous with very little effort, once it becomes habit. I assure you these actions will pay off for you.

Happy Hunting.
