Conference Talk: Hiring for Quality
Presenter: Lauren Langsner
Throughout my management career each company has faced similar hiring challenges. I am sure you have experienced this as well. Once you have made the case to increase headcount you are probably faced with budgetary restraints to hire the best analyst or engineer “with three to five years of experience.” Where do you source this unique talent? You are tapping into the same pipeline that every other hiring company uses, forcing you to explain why your open position is more attractive. Once you have a pipeline your work has really just started. How do you find the right person and what traits do you look for? Then like anything else how do you make this a repeatable process? Learn how Lauren and Rent the Runway solve these problems and hire great talent.
