We often don't think about sports when talking about attracting and retaining talent but if we look at the time and money spent on recruiting the right talent in football for example, it is a massive business.
A great example of this is the NFL and this article from Simon Halkyard at Shop Direct, really highlight's how assessment is critical to the drafting process.
Today Tom Brady is one of the most celebrated athletes in the world; he is a 5 time Super Bowl champion and guaranteed to be inducted into the American Football Hall of Fame. But that was not always the case… When you think of talent assessment, the NFL is probably not the first organisation that comes to mind. But the NFL, like most successful organisations, understands that their future is reliant on the hiring decisions they make today. They see themselves as a corporate business entity, not a sports industry.
