Great people aren’t hard to find if you look in the right places

In the bottom right hand drawer of my desk for more than decade when I was a corporate leader in the 70’s and 80’s I had a file chock full of prospective employees. All were recommendations from my employees. I received the idea of having an “employee bank” from one of my mentors. I never had any trouble recruiting great people.

It amazes me that a common sense idea like this is not widely adopted. Your best source of finding great people is through your current employees, assuming of course that they are highly engaged with you and happy in their work.

Where are you looking to find great people?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
