Review:

Competing For Talent, by human-resources consultant Nancy Ahlrichs, is a solid and accessible resource for anyone who recognizes that "people (not technology or products) are the key to organizational success, innovation, and profitability." Ahlrichs advocates becoming an Employer of Choice, or EOC, which charts "new strategic directions that put people in the profit equation." Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach to recruiting and retention, she outlines some of the tools and techniques already in use by others along with her own advice for embracing them. A lengthy Introduction examines profitability in a tight hiring market, and offers ways to document turnover costs and uncover its causes. Part One explores the tactics used by some successful EOCs, and presents specific ways to adapt them. Part Two focuses on recruiting, examining the processes and technologies involved as well as some underutilized sources for quality candidates. Part Three looks at retention, laying out tactics for lowering turnover that range from improving compensation and benefits to total cultural rehabilitation. A final section offers information specific to "information technology brainpower." --Howard Rothman

From the Publisher:

A selection of the Executive Program book club.

"In this pragmatic, comprehensive book, Nancy Ahlrichs guides the reader to the promised land of 21st century enterprises--the employer of choice organization. Money, methods, and products alone won't get you to the top. That requires certain kinds of employees. This book will help you find them and keep them." Philip Sutton Chard, President & CEO, National Employee Assistance Services, Inc.

"As an HR and Recruiting Director with a Fortune 100 designated Employer of Choice, I feel qualified to recommend this excellent publication to all leaders who want to 'get it right.' An inclusive, sensitive, caring, championing culture is what attracts and retains. Nancy Ahlrichs provides a blueprint to facilitating one." William H. Bagley, Human Resources and Recruiting Director, Deloitte & Touche

"EMMIS Communications has become an Employer of Choice and a 'destination' organization for talented employees by branding our culture and embracing other principles outlined by Nancy Ahlrichs.

Jeff Smulyan, Chairman & CEO, EMMIS Communications

"Ahlrichs presents a comprehensive, compelling and accessible framework to understand the economic and psychological realities and the hard work involved in winning the war for talent. Human resource leaders and their business partners will use this book to understand their current position, and to chart a course to assure that the best talent will work for them, and not their competition." Nancy Arnosti, Principal, Arnosti Consulting
