Start-up company’s CEO dangles shiny new Tesla’s to try to attract talent. He thinks giving his employee’s a car is a better move than giving something like a merit based bonus.
The News Observer reports: The company’s CEO Nick DeMarco”said “the company’s outside investors, which last month plowed $5 million into the company, are on board with the unusual perk.” “We’ll see, but this is probably the most cost-effective way to do good recruiting, much cheaper than using … headhunters,” he said.”
It clear this CEO has no clue to the value of a good recruiter. A good recruiting firm can make a profound impact on a companies bottom line. The ability to attract, extract, and deliver top talent is, and always will be a cost effective highly specialized service, which will continue to put seasoned experienced recruiters at the very epicenter of the corporate future.
