Kim Shepherd to SUCCESS Magazine: How to Attract Top Talent

image description


Decision Toolbox CEO Kim Shepherd recently connected with Emma Johnson from SUCCESS magazine to discuss how business owners can attract and retain top talent.

Excerpt from the article:

Kim Shepherd, CEO of Decision Toolbox, a national staffing firm based in Irvine, Calif., says employee engagement is a far better investment than a tricked-out campus. One oft-cited McKinsey & Co. study found that, across the board, things like praise from management and leadership opportunities were at least as effective—and sometimes more effective—in motivating employees than financial compensation. “Hire for soft skills and build a company where people want to work,” Shepherd says. “People join a company, but they leave their managers. Be a manager who keeps employees.”

In the article, Kim also shares tips on how to effectively market your job opening to attract better talent, and interview tips to help identify the kinds of hires who will help you grow.
