Hi Guest,

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend!

The unemployment rate has marginally dropped in November and we can expect to pre pandemic level by mid of 2021. When organizations need to hire new talent, there are 4 B methods – Buy, Borrow, Build, and Bridge – that can be used to solve the talent shortcomings. We shall discuss this model as we go along.

Buy, Build, Borrow and Bridge. You can "buy" talent—this means hire someone as an employee for your firm. You can "build" talent—which focuses on training employees to assume new responsibilities. Or You can "borrow" talent— this means that they would find a freelance to do the work. You can “bridge” talent - Move people up or laterally to new roles inside or outside the organization.

4B's Strategies of Hiring


Early Talent  Development

Several developmental programs such as student mentoring, a faculty engagement, intern hiring, remote internships, will enable great partnerships with different colleges and teams. As an added bonus, this will bridge the skill gap between universities and companies. We need to look precisely on the overall development of the Early talent. Most importantly, this approach can also be very positive for the employee, encouraging them to stay with the organization longer as they develop and progress in their career.


Agile Workforce

With the help of AI, ML and market driven- intelligence, we need to quickly assess the various hiring avenues and competitive intelligence and enable our talent strategy. We need to look at a Buy strategy for these kinds of positions while keeping our L&D teams abreast of these requirements so that they can build a plan for future demands. Employers need to understand that candidates are consumers too; in order to attract the best talent, HR needs to be a master marketer.


Managing Existing Skills

In order to fully benefit from your Borrow strategy, it’s important to cultivate communities of talent outside the organization, including part-time and consulting workers to complement existing skills. This strategy can also be useful in a Buy strategy when you have less time to initiate a large project. Without adequate capital, it’s difficult for SMB to grow.


Bridging the Gap

The systems should be interactive which enables individuals to learn. They can also choose to do minor projects to harness the academic learning that they get and eventually move to new roles that require new competencies. Firms improve on the track record by paying far greater attention to the capabilities they need to successfully implement their strategy.
