Should you buy, borrow, bounce, build, balance or bind leadership talent?
More often than not the complexity lies within the ‘how to’, and what criteria will be used to decide. In the modern workplace, opinions as to which talent acquisition approach will yield the best result is more than often a fruitless and subjective exercise totally exclusive of tangible and objective comparative criteria.
Determining which option to pursue depends heavily on supply and demand, but also on your organisation’s past experience, internal resources, best practice and integrated talent management model. Cognisance should also be taken as to how the chosen approach impacts on the greater HR lifecycle together with business and strategic goals.
