Purple Squirrels:
The demand for highly specialized technical talent in the industry is extremely high and the struggle to secure the best and brightest talent is a constant competitive issue. “Two-Headed People” are those who are highly technical chemical engineers and who are also gifted with people skills and commercial ability. Metaphorically, they are referred to as Purple Squirrels and they are almost impossible to find. They are always highly-regarded and protected assets in any company. They are considered passive talent and there is little to zero unemployment for such talent. The only way they can be acquired is to be extracted via personal recruiting, which is our key strength at Extract Talent. Learn more about Purple Squirrels Here
