Engagement matters, but too many managers pursue it as a goal, not a byproduct. https://lnkd.in/bSk4xkG
Far too many executives mistakenly chase engagement numbers to drive business performance, when they should instead be rolling up their own sleeves and jumping into the task.

    I am currently a Strategic Recruiting Manager at Staffing Advisors, leading candidate research efforts in a variety of industries including nonprofit. Staffing Advisors is a retained search firm, engaged by our clients to find the talent they need, in a very short period of time. What is retained search?

Specialties: Non-profit, Association, Membership Organization, Network Engineer, Network Administrator, System Administrator, IT consulting, End User Support, For-Profit, Construction, Medical Research, Marketing, COO, CEO, Chief Marketing Officer, CMO, CFO, CHRO, VP, Vice President, Manager, Recruitment Strategy, Social Media, Online Research & Sourcing....my ultimate specialty? Bedazzled purple unicorns, the tougher the search, the better.

We had a great experience with Kellie...Her knowledge of photography, lighting and Hilton Head gave us some amazing family photos. Everyone looks good! We were able to do so much in just an hour. The follow up view appointment was easy too - I was worried - I knew we'd taken alot of photos. But Kellie had everything queued and made it simple to compare photos so we chose ones everyone in our family would love. It was a great experience...I'm definitely keeping her in mind for future photo moments.
