Hiring is the front door to your future success.

Everything – –  including hiring – –  is changing at speeds never seen before.  

This is a “Money Ball” * moment for hiring.

What does a baseball movie have to do with hiring?  A great deal!

* The movie Money Ball showed how the Oakland Athletics, a small market baseball team, could beat big city teams who had far more money to spend on new talent.  How did they beat them?  For over 75 years, all baseball teams evaluated talent basically the same way.  Oakland realized to compete, they had to challenge the status quo.

They developed a system for evaluating talent that gave them a competitive advantage.  Did it work? Oakland won their first World Series in almost 75 years.  The Boston Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs successfully used the system and each team won a World Series after a fifty-year drought.  They were successful because they went against the grain and were willing to think outside-of-the-box.

Why is this a Money Ball moment for hiring?

All companies are dealing with these workforce demographics. Some companies see them as an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage.

How to make the Money Ball moment a competitive advantage?

Question:  How do you run a company when 50% of your workforce is changing jobs every 2.3 years?

New technology, updating job descriptions or implementing a new onboarding process will not be enough.  HR cannot do this alone. Senior management and HR will need to shake up the status quo on hiring with some fundamental, structural change.  It will require some out-of-the-box thinking.  The key will be the CEOs.  Why? Too often HR has the responsibility, but not the authority to fully implement the necessary strategic changes to hiring.
