Why One Person Should Be Dedicated to Shepherding Recruitment at Your Company

Although there are a lot of tools and resources available to help with hiring and retention, you should focus on the basics, says recruitment expert Chloé Tashjian Soares.

"The most important thing is ensuring that your company's mission and strategy is aligned to your talent strategy, and that it is communicated properly to your team,” she says.

In her experience, Soares -- who is the founder and president of leadership search and consulting agency Tash + Co -- finds that companies should have at least one person shepherding the recruitment process, from finding candidates to hiring them. Even when different teams have different priorities, it's important to keep the process universal. After all, existing and potential team members either are or will be part of the same company.
