When I am recruiting for my clients, one of the keys to hiring better candidates is exhibiting stable leadership. Organizational leadership is a huge selling point for candidates in this labor market, even more so than salary or other prevalent deciding factors. Job seekers want to know that their next career move (and their new home) will offer robust mentorship, encouragement, and, ultimately, healthy leadership.
When I have conversations with my clients, I develop an understanding of their management style. For instance, I work closely with a 200-bed facility. Their executives always make themselves accessible to answer my questions and discuss their hiring needs. Thus, I can sell that leadership style to the candidates I am working with and use as a tool to attract the best talent in the healthcare industry. Job seekers want to know they are going somewhere where there is GREAT management.
Servant leadership goes a long way
I recently learned the philosophy of Servant Leadership. Last week while recruiting, I came across two candidates that mentioned it. One recently retired and brought up Servant Leadership. She explained how much she missed her staff and told me about the leadership style of her former employer; she was so delightful to speak with.
The other candidate I was speaking with discussed his desired leadership style and how he wants to work for an organization that fosters “servant leaders.” The philosophy of “lead by walking beside your people” is something every candidate is looking for in today’s job market.
