One of the top recruiters of executive and sales-leadership talent in the tech industry, Pat Fitzgerald brings deep and valuable perspectives on the battle for talent being waged across every industry today. In monthly episodes, Pat shares his unique insights on the new types of skills that businesses are seeking today, and also on opportunities that talented professionals of all ages are looking for. Today, Pat and I are joined by Toby Culshaw, the Talent Intelligence Leader for Amazon.
The Big Themes:
- What is talent intelligence? The application of data relating to people, skills, jobs, functions, competitors, geographies, to drive business decisions.
- What are the core data sets used for TI? The bread and butter data sets are demand, supply, and cost.
- Beyond the job title: TI can be used to source candidates based on skillsets that a company is looking for, not just specific titles.
The Big Quote: “If you ask any CEO, what’s their biggest asset? It’s their people. What’s their biggest risk for the future? It’s access to the right people.”
