In today’s very competitive hiring environment, brands need to have a solid strategy for talent acquisition with forethought to the retention of desired talent. Speed and accuracy of culture fit are essentials parts of the strategy, but what happens when companies take too much time to assess their candidates?

On this week’s #WorkTrends show, host Meghan M. Biro was joined by author Scott Wintrip. Scott is the president of Wintrip Consulting Group and the author of the  highly anticipated book High Velocity Hiring: How to Hire Top Talent in an Instant. They discussed discuss how companies can hire quickly and still maintain high standards for the acquisition of desirable talent.

Scott shared advice about utilising technology properly to improve recruiting and hiring practices.

Here are a few key points that Scott shared:

  • There’s such a thing as overusing technology and underusing it. You have to find the middle
  • There’s a direct correlation between talent wealth and business success
  • Companies need to be fast to hire and quicker to inspire
