Did you know that Google often acquires companies based upon what their talent is going to do in the future?
Google recognizes that the real differentiating factors in today’s economy are the people who make up a company. Megan Smith, Google’s vice president of new business development, says “…Be open to growing your company, both through hiring top talent as well as acquiring top talent. That is what we have come to find for our own company.”
This is a lesson for any organization. Top Talent is the key to maintaining and increasing profitability and competitive edge. It is also getting harder to find top talent. A Strategic Employer understands this business reality and plans for it.
