Women in the Boardroom Thanks for Paving The Way For The Next Generation Of Women Leaders

During these unprecedented times, we want to say we were here for you yesterday, we are here for you today and we will be here for you tomorrow. Stay safe my friends.

Also, as we prepare to launch our March Study and with March being Women History Month, we thought it would be a great time to recognize the highly-accomplished women who have earned their seat on the board of the Fortune 50. These powerful women along with the other successful women leaders continue to pave the way for the next generation.

The women noted below are part of a yearlong study SGA Talent conducted in 2019 as a response to the signing of a California bill in 2018, Women on Boards (Senate Bill 826) . The study went beyond the board level to the C-Suite and 2 levels below from the top 3,000 publicly-traded companies with the goal to create a talent pool of the next generation women leaders.

For now congrats to all….You made it and we thank you!

Recruiting It’s All About Your Networks & Creating Strong Engaging Talent Communities

From the desk of Sheila Greco, Chief Executive Officer SGA Talent

As a talent advisor, networking needs to be part of your long-term success strategy.  It needs to be an activity that is part of your total recruiting effort. Just like creating a talent pool and reaching out to potential recruits to build strong candidate pipelines, asking professionals to be part of your networks or talent communities should be part of what you do too. I traditionally ask people to join my network in my initial outreach because I believe it is a nice way to end a message or note. You too can try that.  But if they don’t connect right away, and you really want them to be part of your talent communities/networks, circle back later, after the hire is made, letting them know your interest in them being part of your network. Also, as you build your talent communities be sure to choose your connections carefully, requesting only those who make sense as well as those who you believe will see the value of the connection. Please take note that building strong networks takes time—- some take weeks, months or years. But, whatever the timeframe, the time to start is now. Long term, if you want to be successful in our industry, it’s all about who you know and who knows you.

The Value Of Your Networks

Business networking and more specifically recruiting networking involves making connections not only with likely recruits or potential clients, but with those who you feel will be good for referrals for both people and business. Basically, it is all about creating trusting relationships and friendships with other businesspeople that can be mutually beneficial. It is also a great way to continue your education because you can learn from others as well as exchange ideas. Often these open discussions result in building strong bonds and trust.

Staying Connected & Being Accessible

Staying connected means to personally interact with your connections with outreach and responding to their inquiries- remember it is a two-way street. Engaging with your connections can be as easy as asking them to network with you, answering their requests, sharing relevant meaningful information or simply just catching up. It truly depends upon the existing relationship as well as how much engaging you want to do to stay connected, but it must be done. Engagements can be done on an ad hoc basis, scheduling a face to face meeting or call. Reaching out on average 3-5 times per year is typically more than enough allowing one of the touchpoints to be during the holiday season. Staying connected and accessible should not be a full-time job but part of it!

Building Talent Communities To Help Build Your Own Brand

It is good to be mindful that your talent communities were not created just to fill roles but a chance to highlight you as an expert, a thought leader as well as a resource for career advice, career movements and potentially business. Networking amongst your community has been proven to be linked to many measures of professional success. In building your brand, feel free to show the world you are an expert by sharing what you have learned during your daily activities. Sharing can be simple— It can be done in an email, with a call, a text and of course through social media. Compared to years ago, where there were limited networking mediums, social media today actually amplifies the ability to network endlessly and authentically. As I do use social media, I still prefer to send email messages, even pick up the telephone or shoot a text to share some highly relevant content. Be sure to share intelligence with your connections, it will be well worth your time.

Build, Cultivate, Engage  

You And Your Networks Are Your Best Recruiting Tools

Creating and cultivating engaged talent communities are a must for those yearning for a long-term successful career in recruiting. Tapping into your networks as you begin to fill your open roles is a great place to start your search and a great way to stay connected as well as engage with your connections. Employing this strategic approach to recruiting can shorten the time to present qualified candidates as well as cultivate, maintain and grow your talent communities. Once someone agrees to join a network most understand and have agreed in some form to be open to networking, listening as well as potentially moving for the “right” position so please don’t hesitate to reach out to them as often as it makes sense. As you continue to build, cultivate and engage I encourage all of you to use your networks as you recruit top performers.

I See The Value Of Building Networks and Being Part Of Them

Having been in the recruiting business for many years I have been fortunate enough to have built many networks and talent communities as well as being asked to be part of just as many, in both scenarios, I discovered as well as experienced the many benefits of doing so. With that said, I thank my early mentors for setting the mission to make networking part of my daily routine to build my personal brand and to showcase our company. Today it continues as I try to be there for my inner circle networking members for support, to listen, react and to be a valuable resource. I encourage all of you to make networking efforts part of your daily activities.

Cheers!

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!

THE VALUE OF RECRUITING KICK-OFF MEETINGS

Kick Off Meetings Create The Strong Partnership Right From The Start

 

 

Recruiting Kick-Off Meetings Do Matter

 

Before we begin any recruiting project, even recruitment research assignments, we ask for a kick-off meeting prior to the start. This routine activity is a time where everyone can learn, share and discuss relevant information as well as discuss expectations. I believe recruiting kick-off meetings set the stage for the win-win partnership.

Embrace Kick-Off Meetings

Recruiting kick-off meetings act as the first formal meeting between the client, their team and the recruiting team (s) for a specific assignment. These meetings need to be embraced, not ignored or taken lightly. It is a time to set expectations, discuss the recruiting process, a time to ask pointed questions, learn about the role, each team player’s responsibilities, as well as discuss other relevant information that cannot generally be answered from just a job specification or informal meeting. It is a time to build rapport between all parties, strengthen the relationship and quite frankly is the start of what needs to be a successful partnership that must yield success.  Therefore, the act of engagement before and during the kick-off meeting from all parties is a must.

Meeting Overview

Kick-off meetings are generally used to introduce the team, understand the search, the strategy, the process, the goals, set the timeline of expectations as well as discuss how all involved are going to work together effectively.  In effect, the recruiting kick-off meeting serves multiple administrative purposes. These recruiting kick-off meetings also establish communication protocols, discusses specific recruiting and interviewing processes. It is also a great time to discuss timing around start date and on-boarding. It is the time to discuss when to expect feedback from the hiring manager after a candidate has been presented, set dates for update calls with regards to the progress as well as a great time to talk about the target list, potential talent pool and how many candidates will be presented weekly. I believe recruiting kick-off meetings set the right tone for each recruiting engagement and should never be omitted from the recruiting strategy or process.

The Agenda:

The agenda should be kept simple while allowing enough time to cover the role, the process and expectations. Each item should add value to the discussion. Most importantly it is recommended that all parties are prepared. Often the recruiting kick-off agenda is developed beforehand and sent to all parties prior to the meeting.

  1. Start with the introductions of each attendee while focusing on the role he/she will be involved with during the search. Allow some time to discuss past recruiting experiences that produced results, ones that worked well and should be mimicked.
  2. Discuss and review the job specification in detail – Discuss ideal candidates to include, musts, needs and wants. Define the skills, traits, and qualifications the hiring manager is seeking. Discuss companies in which the client has had success recruiting from, companies of interest and those which are off-limits.
  3. Discuss the recruiting process details – Every client has a recruiting process that needs to be followed. If there is not a specific one in place, create one. There needs to be a roadmap to follow and stick to. Use this time to gather emails and telephone numbers of each team player so that communications amongst the team can be made quite easily.
  4. Set the expectations of each team player, discussing accountability and involvement – Be sure to communicate the role of each, timelines of expected reports and candidates as well as all follow-up activities.

The Meeting – It Can Be Face-to-Face or Simply Done Over the Telephone

  1. Start on Time – To show respect for all parties involved, the meeting should start promptly. To facilitate this, it is recommended to send copies of the meeting materials in advance. This may include the agenda, job specifications, the list of those attending and biographies or links of those attending.
  2. Allow the client or someone from their team to drive the process and meeting –  During this time, typically the client will speak in detail about the role, the process and expectations. This is the time recruiters and those who are executing need to listen, learn and ask questions.
  3. Recognize the fact that the kick-off meeting is the beginning of the recruiting engagement – An effective recruiting kick-off meeting presents a unique opportunity to establish the tone of this mutually beneficial partnership. For the client, it is a time to explain the role, the team, the company and the importance of the role to this hiring manager. For recruiters, it is a time to show the client you are an expert and you are the trusted partner who will deliver results by delivering interested, qualified candidates quickly. You are the recruiter who will identify, recruit and vet the high potential candidates your client so deserves. Now is the time to define your own responsibilities for the engagement. It is okay for you, the recruiter to “sell” but not oversell, the recruiting function to the client as a value-added service. Lastly, it seems logical to use this time to build trust between all parties involved. Game on!
  4. When the discussion is winding down, the recruiter can suggest he/she will send a follow-up email, recapping what was discussed – This ensures everyone is on the same page.

Our SGA Talent – HERE FOR YOU CULTURE & kick-off meeting commitments ensures that everyone feels heard and supported so we can successfully meet our clients’ talent needs.

Happy Hunting and be sure to include a recruiting kick-off meeting as part of your next search engagement.
