Is Your Brand Ready for the “War for Talent”?


Medallion aggressively ventures into companies to find the best talent in a market and introduces our client’s brand essence. Most Medallion clients want to be described with phrases like Innovative, Customer Centric, Analytical, Progressive, Creative, Flexible, Global, Entrepreneurial, and Growth oriented. Before we ever disclose the name of our client, often due to the uniqueness of the project we are working, we describe the brand essence. Medallion takes on our client’s brand essence.

To get the best “passive” talent, Medallion markets this essence to candidates who are not aware of our client’s roles or true value of our client’s mission. Remember, the best talent is happy and focused on winning in their current role. Now imagine being recruited into a Talent Acquisition process that is bureaucratic, indecisive, elongated, and works like a government entity. Recruiting processes are most often tailored to active job seekers who apply to jobs, not “happy passives” who need to be courted.

Medallion is focused on ensuring that the process to acquire talent mirrors the innovation process. We want to provide the analytical detail and creative view that allows our hiring teams to be convicted and decisive. Medallion knows that securing the best “passive” talent requires preparation and focus by the hiring team. We take on this burden and ensure our hiring teams are ready to act in a manner consistent with the company’s best brand position.

Medallion protects our client employment brand like a treasure. Our clients get candid feedback and we objectively share “best practices” to ensure they can win the war for talent. Like any innovation process or critical acquisition, we want to bring the ideas that deliver the best results.

In the war for talent, Medallion wants to ensure our clients understand who they employ, who they need for the future, who is available from the markets they know and don’t know, and the competition in the war for talent. To do this well, your talent acquisition partner must have global business leadership experience in a variety of markets.

Medallion’s broad industry experience and global network connections provide the ability to assess the current and future business requirements while uniquely accessing target talent to meet those requirements. Medallion treats each search as a talent acquisition project that focuses on measureable outcomes in the Medallion Matrix scoring tool. No acquisition is more important than the people who drive the business. Medallion is the premier Talent Acquisition organization because we know people will determine who wins. Medallion is a competitive advantage.
