As talent professionals and HR leaders, we have a responsibility to tend and care for the planet that surrounds us. Much like our world, our hiring landscape has experienced many changes over time.

That alone can drive a hiring manager mad and we haven’t even mentioned retention. Aside from sourcing, by the end of the hiring process companies are usually out a pretty penny and many times miss out on great talent that simply wasn’t handled in the right manner.
