The Big Themes:
- Blending old and new communication channels: It’s that personal connection that we’re really pushing with many of our clients, and now we’re able to consult with several clients about their talent acquisition strategy.
- A huge passion: Moving a client from a passive to an active recruiting model is the right thing.
- Treating a candidate with respect: In the end when you turn them down, they still feel like you are someone that’s been their biggest advocate.
- Innovative and disruptive leader in HR: There are many out there today, and we’ve seen HR become more strategic.
The Big Quote: “There are companies out there that really have figured that out. Many of them are tiny or small companies, but they’ve just done it brilliantly.”
