How to Become a Talent Magnet by Rick White (Friday-M1)

Let’s look at some pretty sobering facts: 
1. Unemployment is at an all-time low
2. The talent pool for quality technicians and advisors is shrinking
3. The old ways of chasing and finding potential help aren’t working anymore

Our experience shows that it takes an average of SEVEN months to replace a great tech and we see that number growing. Waiting for someone to leave to recruit for their replacement gets you “Mr. Right Now” in desperation instead of “Mr. Right.” Like Apple and Google, you need the best of the best banging down YOUR door every day. This class teaches you how to become your own Talent Magnet getting exactly that. 

- The mistakes you’re making in your hiring process right now
- What the top 1% need and want from a company to come on board and stay
- Strategies to turn your business into a “Talent Magnet”
