Retaining your best recruiters

By GSR2R Admin | 1st May 2023

Retaining your best recruiters through your managers and leadership team.

A team that wins in recruitment is a team that works together for the greater good of their candidates and clients. At the same time respecting each other. As a result, when this is happening, bigger achievements like increase in turnover and gross profit follows. When the above is in place the last thing you need is key players started to leave. Here’s more on retaining your best recruiters.

One of key reasons the best recruiters leave

One of key reasons the best recruiters leave a business when they are smashing it, is often because of their direct manager and overall leadership of the company.

One or several of the below is often the catalyst of high-performing recruiters looking for a new role. Reasons we hear daily from recruiters looking to leave a company includes:

  1. No leadership
  2. Lack of direction
  3. Clash in styles
  4. Over managed
  5. Feels undervalued
  6. Lack of trust from both parties
  7. No common values or vision
  8. Language and behaviour to others

“Business is a game, and as with all games, the team that puts the best people on the field and gets them playing together wins.” Alan Sugar.

Lack of leadership

When I hear recruiters talk about the lack of leadership in their current company, my first piece of advice is to ask them to be vocal about this to the relevant people. And to give them the confidence that their company wants to hear this feedback and can change. However, recruiters don’t find it comfortable and will often leave rather than speak about their thoughts about the company’s leadership and their direct manager.
