Hopefully, you have seen some of our announcements and press releases about our new book, "No More Rotten Eggs â€“ A Dozen Steps to Grade AA Talent Management," just published by McGraw-Hill and available in book stores everywhere and online. We have been asked why we would suggest a book on hiring now when, in fact, many companies are still in the downsizing mode. Well, the fact of the matter is that this is the right time to hire. Not to add staff, but rather to upgrade staff. Given all the discussion of a structural change in the industry, it is only logical that business owners recognize the need to restructure to cope with these structural changes. And when they restructure, they need to be sure that their current staff will fit their new vision. There may be better people out there and now is the time to get them. If you wait until the recovery is underway then you will be competing again for the top performers and you could lose. So donâ€™t wait â€“ start now. And if you want to know how to do it right, buy our book!
