YOUR OPTIONS: HIRE PEOPLE
OR HIRE THE BEST PEOPLE

THE CHALLENGE

It's no secret: When you hire the best people, you set up your firm for success. Yet many managers struggle to bring in the kind of talent that will help put their firm over the top.

THE SOLUTION: BECOME A HIRING CHAMP

GAMA's Field Leadership Series teaches you how to enhance your recruit-and-develop process, and to come up with a bold plan that will bring your firm immediate and lasting results.

The first course in the series, "Finding the Right People," focuses on the strategies implemented by the most productive agencies — as measured by first-year commissions — to secure high-quality talent:

  • Creating a foolproof selection process
  • Identifying ideal candidates
  • Balancing primary and secondary recruiting sources
  • Optimizing referrals & managing centers of influence

In this highly interactive workshop you get to hear from the masters, share ideas with your peers, assess your current practices, and develop a plan for streamlining your talent recruitment process.

Course Details

This program is based on compelling research findings from the GAMA Foundation for Education and Research. The workshop focuses on what differentiates the recruiting and selection practices of top-performing field leaders from their lower-performing peers and is the result of extensive research that included field leaders from multiline, traditional life and fee-based financial series. By applying the leading practices of top-performing field leaders, you will have a unique opportunity to dramatically improve the way you recruit and select new associates.

Upon completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify the recruiting and selection practices that differentiate high-performing field leaders from their lower-performing peers, including specific practices in:
    • Recruiting processes
    • Candidate profiles
    • Primary recruiting sources
    • Secondary recruiting sources
    • Selection processes
    • Screening tools
    • Tools to determine a candidates' fit, willingness and ability
  • Apply these best practices through:
    • Completing assessments of their current recruiting and selection practices
    • Identifying and prioritizing changes to improve their recruiting and selection process
