“You Should Work Here”: Building An Army of Recruiters

Have you ever had a job, worked for a boss, or as part of an organization so scrumptious you told EVERYONE about it? “You have to work here!”

It’s almost like you’re doing recruiters out of a job.

Wait, what if every person in the organization were actually the recruiter?

Decadent cultures, delicious opportunities, delightful people, and devoted organizations. It may seem too good to be true, yet, you’ve already said it’s not…you’re worked for them (maybe you still do.)

Let’s fuel workplaces that are so delicious that you have an army of recruiters…every person in the place tells everyone they know, “you’ve got to work here.”

Everyday Recruiter Challenge

Do you want this to be your workplace? Do you want people to say this about your team? Do you want every person in your entire industry to attract folks looking for a new career “home”? Start your own recruitment challenge.

Forward this video to others to join you as “everyday recruiters” – your boss, your team, your association – and say, “Hey, I want to help recruit the best, so starting today, I see myself as a recruiter…are you with me?” Forward this blog as an invitation for them to tell everyone they know what a privilege it is to work in your industry, association, team.

Who better to select the best people to work with your team than…you?

If you want to help to stop the revolving door of talent, tell people about what you like about where you work – to your peers, your boss, and anyone who will listen – and sure, no workplace is perfect, yet isn’t it better if more of the best work alongside you? Be the recruiter starting today!

"Sarah nailed it!  She worked with the planning group to learn about the organization, the audience, the desired key messages and integrated it seamlessly into her keynote. Her energy was contagious! We received rave reviews of this portion of our event and Sarah was able to speak to all members of our organization in a way that motivated them to recognize others everyday. Our executives were extraordinarily pleased and integrated FROGging into their recent board meeting. Purolator is grateful to Sarah for dropping the pebble and we continue to see the ripples from this session across the organization. Working with Tami was phenomenal and the supports were easy to integrate to ensure the session went well. Thanks to you both!!"

"I have had the Sarah experience in numerous settings: As a keynote, around a table with several other business owners, one on one over coffee, chatting with others at a conference reception, dining with a small group of colleagues. No matter the setting you always get the same Sarah: engaging, attentive, interested, inspiring, motivational, genuine. And always with an infectious smile. Do yourself, your company, your association a favour. Get the Greatness Magnified (Sarah) experience. The payback is priceless."
Judy Kucharuk

Director, Marketing and Special Events, Encana Events Centre

"Funny, full of energy and incredibly motivating – all words to use when describing Sarah and her passionate stage presence. We were fortunate to have Sarah join us as a speaker for Spark Women’s Leadership Conferences and her presentations about leveraging greatness hit the core of our objective at SPARK: “A rising tide lifts all boats”. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to other organizations that are searching for a well-prepared, well-organized, thoughtful and passionate storyteller."

"Sarah brought so much energy and enthusiasm to our International Women’s Day event at Libro! Her message was uplifting, thought-provoking and truly appreciated by our team. Dealing with Sarah was wonderful – she was open, professional and willing to work with us to customize her message to incorporate our culture and connect to our topic and participants. During the session, she was a pro with a powerful message and a fantastic delivery. We had wonderful feedback from all that attended and can’t wait to have Sarah back for another session in the future!"

"THANK YOU so very much for leading the engagement activities today! You’re a constant professional, with an amazing attitude and always seeing the great in everyone. I am grateful for how you have helped us this year to transform our in-person staff recognition events into virtual and on-location events. Our staff feel more inspired, appreciated and motivated after they hear you speak, and I know our amazing in-house team here looks forward to designing engaging appreciation events with your support."

"We work hard at CDHA to give our members a wonderful conference experience, so we were thrilled to have received resoundingly positive feedback on Sarah's opening plenary keynote. It was the highest attended of the entire conference for both dates!"
Jamie Campbell

"Smart, challenging, innovative, committed, dependable, and reliable, I highly recommend her for all your recognition needs. I have brought Sarah into my last two organizations to help build a culture of recognition and celebration. The focus on appreciation is more important now than ever."
