In a job market like today’s, where skilled workers are in high demand and employers are having a hard time filling positions, offering workplace flexibility is something to consider in order to attract top talent.

If you had to put a price tag on your top sales executive, how much would they be worth? What about the web developer you struck gold with? Or, your all-star digital marketer? As the Harvard Business Review notes, a high performer is estimated to have a 400% higher productivity level than the average performer.

What you need is a robust people strategy, an innovative and well-structured recruiting program, and a strong value proposition and employer brand. Here’s how.

Now imagine those 19 kids are in reality the 19 countries where your company recruits, and you are the one in charge of creating your global recruitment strategy.
