Facing severe talent shortages

Employees are in great demand in almost every industry. As a result, some suggest using nontraditional talent pools such as older workers or military veterans. However, most often, the best talent pool may be the surplus talent hiding in plain sight.

For example:

  • The salesperson can fill the open sales manager position. 
  • The house cleaner in the motel can become a capable general manager.

There may be risks associated with this strategy, as you have to identify the right people and then do what you can to set them up for success.

To find such a person, ask: If all employees were gone for a month but you could pick three people to stay on with you, who would it be, and why?

  • They are willing to work hard but also work smart and execute.
  • They're doing great work, but they are also great to work with.
