    Scaling Your Proactive Sourcing: Building a Team of Talent Scouts

    In this session, Ed will tell the story of building a highly efficient recruiting function from the ground up. He’ll explain how he staffed his team with talent scouts: skilled recruiters incentivized and motivated like sales professionals. He'll share lessons in proactive sourcing at scale, building your recruiting team like a sales team, and engaging your employees to become partners in recruitment—all on a limited budget!
