Boutique Employability (BE) is a special type of employability for multidimensional candidates.
It provides businesses with tested-to-fit human capital, tailored to the needs and business culture of your organization. In the same way, a niche market differs from a mass-market or a boutique differs from a department store, boutique employability differs from conventional approaches to employability.
What you as an EMPLOYER do:
You follow a sequence of E-D-G-E steps to attract multidimensional talents. Using the BE-EDGE open up their creativity, connect with, and test for added value.
As a result of the BE,
you as an employer can make a one-from-one choice, when
you have proof that the candidate is a perfect match for your company
on personal, social and professional levels.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS AND OPPORTUNITIES
BE-EDGE allows companies to capitalize on veterans’ already accumulated personal, social, and professional capitals.
Instead of expecting veterans to adjust and transit seamlessly to new settings, companies can use the E-D-G-E process to develop a workplace that targets the Built-in Employability of veterans and other accomplished professionals.
Following the steps give veterans a sense of control over their next move, and ensure their built-in abilities are appreciated and utilized. It also lets businesses gain a new edge. Read more about capitalizing on veterans’ built-in employability
Businesses want to acquire ambitious talent who they can rely on to be attentive in gaining an understanding of their organizations’ complexities, are interested in the opinions of others, loyal, and willing and able to contribute to their employers’ goals. Many hiring professionals are not sure whether younger generations fit well with these objectives.
Universities have specialized programs that interest companies, so companies can define a theme or offer a challenge to work on within capstone courses, internships, or “Make Your Case” competitions.
BE-EDGE establishes a straightforward process with a set of deliverables and rubrics for evaluation. Read more on Businesses vs. Millennials
Corporate University for Built-in Employability
Companies can also apply the BE-EDGE method within their corporate universities for leadership development and talent appreciation, providing a clearly defined process and rubrics for mapping a career trajectory within the company.
The most straightforward pathway for a company to apply design thinking to talent pipeline development is to launch a company-, industry-, or challenge-themed “Make Your Case” Competition within the company, or partner with a recruitment agency, pro-veteran organizations, or universities.
