Maitland, FL, February 25, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- AlignMark, Inc. formally released its white paper, entitled “What Every Financial Institution Needs to Know About Attracting and Hiring Top Talent.” In this paper, AlignMark industrial psychologist, Scot Lake, clearly indicates that to entice and hire top talent, financial institutions must excel in their sourcing, screening and selection systems. Superior financial institutions recognize that top talent is different than the rest of the talent pool and the differences have little to do with generational, cultural or value variations and everything to do with the qualities that transcend generational priorities or divergent values—qualities such as: being saavy and decisive; being an intelligent consumer of opportunity; being selective; and attracted to opportunities that are efficient to pursue, provide a fair and objective assessment of their qualifications, work preferences and skills; and, most importantly, offer the promise of an enriching work experience.
AlignMark has spent 30 years partnering with all types of financial organizations across the Globe. In this Paper, Scot Lake says, “Top talent is out there. Hiring outstanding tellers and call center agents is everyone’s goal. However, only those institutions that take the time to reflect on the first impressions that their recruitment and selection systems create and seeing those processes as top talent sees them, will be able to meet the expectations and high standards that top talent holds. With expectations met, top talent willingly, will enthusiastically join, thrive, and raise the talent bar on employee performance”.
According to AlignMark’s CEO, Cabot Jaffee, Ph.D., “our focus and unwavering passion at AlignMark is helping our clients optimize the investment they make in human capital. We want our financial clients and prospects to be able to attract, hire and retain the absolute best talent”. He goes on to say, “we believe this Paper will help financial institutions be more diligent and strategic when it comes to winning the war for talent”.
