The “old school” methodology for hiring plug-and-play talent to make a business successful is quickly eroding. Employers must evolve to the changing talent landscape and mindset, or risk not only losing the players they already have, but also face finding themselves unable to attract new members. The events of the past 18 months have provided a catalyst for this impending reality, as expectations have changed while high-level talent has become scarcer with the availability of endless options to choose from.  Startups have a unique opportunity to build a scalable talent strategy from day one, that meets the demands and realities of the current and future talent market, while also optimizing talent use for their business.  In this session, we’ll explore a real-life case study of wins, losses and lessons learned from both a hiring manager and HR perspective and provide a framework for building a scalable talent development and optimization strategy- no matter what your business is.
