5.0 out of 5 stars Are people truly your most valued asset?, June 21, 2006
This review is from: Talent Balancing: Staffing Your Company for Long-Term Success (Hardcover)
Talent Balancing is for employers who want to pay more than lip service to the line, "people are our most valued asset." My experiences at four Fortune 100 companies has shown that this philosophy and culture of "people first" is often poorly reflected in practice.

This book is a must read for business leaders, hiring managers, and HR professionals. Stedt writes in a very easy to follow style, and his book is complete with checklists for quick referencing later. Talent Balancing offers a thorough guide to finding, growing, and retaining talent. Sometimes, that talent is hidden right under our nose in an employee originally earmarked for other business purposes. It's up to business leaders to uncover the many talents of their employees to unleash their full potential and productivity, and in turn unleash the power of "talent balancing."

5.0 out of 5 stars A thorough insightful and practical resource!, March 27, 2006
This review is from: Talent Balancing: Staffing Your Company for Long-Term Success (Hardcover)
Jim Stedt's book really helped me modernize - not just in thinking about how to build my staff and teams, but how to use modern tools to recruit and manage them. I've shared it with our HR department and also with many job hunters. Staffing is an age-old task but it's a new marketplace with new methodologies for connecting supply with demand. No job hunter, recruiter, interviewer or hiring organization should tackle the task without Talent Balancing - it will pay for itself over and over!

This review is from: Talent Balancing: Staffing Your Company for Long-Term Success (Hardcover)
This is an excellent source. It is a practical reference for anyone establishing, maintaining and/or developing an organization. This book is a quick read that is enhanced by effective use of case studies. The information contained is contemporary and includes details of search methodology. The sample forms and checklists are a good starting point for the practitioner. It is evident that the viewpoint of the writer is that of someone that is experienced, "hands on" and operating in today's environment. This book is a solid addition to your technical library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finding the staff you need, February 25, 2006
This review is from: Talent Balancing: Staffing Your Company for Long-Term Success (Hardcover)
Having trouble finding and keeping the talent you need at your company? This book addresses the issues of how to recruit the right employees for your company. For instance, I have seen companies that hire good people, only to lose them by not giving them the right challenges and career paths. Or the people that are hired turn out not to have the skills that needed to be checked before they are hired.

I particularly like the forms and checklists in the book that help you through the recruiting process.

Recommended.
