How to Make a Superstar Your Own (@VisSoft)

Superstar talent often has a hard time transitioning. Recruiters and hiring managers must always work with these new employees to ensure engagement, retention and immediate productivity.

“I’m constantly checking who has viewed my profile on LinkedIn; it’s one part vanity, another part strategy.
