Ep. 34: Companies Must Engage In A New Way Of Hiring.

An employee leaves and you post the open position. Resumes trickle in. You interview a few candidates. No one fits the bill. The next thing you know, three months have passed and that desk is still empty…

Nothing drives business success like a staff of talented, productive employees. So why accept a hiring process that fails you time and time again?

Well, there’s one person who doesn’t: Scott Wintrip. And in High-Velocity Hiring, he provides the tools and systems for creating a hiring process designed for today’s fast-paced, talent-deficient landscape. 

High-Velocity Hiring replaces the old, worn-out way of hiring with the simple but revolutionary approach of actively cultivating top talent before positions open. The old way is slow and inefficient. Wintrip’s way is dynamic and proven-effective. You’ll enrich and maintain a flow of high-quality candidates, harness this flow by identifying the most talented people, and channel it into a pool of ready-to-hire prospective employees.

More than ever, hiring the best people requires foresight, planning, alertness, and decisive action. With High-Velocity Hiring, you have everything you need to seize the high-ground in the war for talent and maintain it for long-term growth and profitability. 

This week I have the pleasure to interview Scott, calling from St. Petersburg, Florida. Published by McGraw-Hill, his book has been named a must-read book by SHRM’s HR Magazine, is in the top 100 books on Amazon, and has been featured in print, radio, podcasts and TV including Fast Company, Forbes, ABC, NBC and Fox.

Today with Scott we will talk about:
– How Talent Acquisition is changing.
– How companies must engage in the new way of hiring.
– How to build a positive candidate experience.
– How to link the candidate journey to the employee journey.
– How to measure success in Talent Acquisition.
– What’s the place of technology in Talent Acquisition.

Note: you can follow Scott on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and find more information about his book here.
