TALENT MAKERS, New Book by Greenhouse Founders Daniel Chait and Jon Stross Delivers Proven Process for Attracting Talent and Building Competitive Advantage
Greenhouse, the hiring software company, announced their new book, “Talent Makers, How the Best Organizations Win Through Structured and Inclusive Hiring”.
“Where’s my hire?” “Why haven’t we filled this seat by now?” Whether you’re leading a fast-growing start-up or an established multinational, you’ve probably heard this complaint over and over again. Something’s broken in your hiring process and it’s time to make a change. But where to begin? In their new book, Talent Makers, Greenhouse CEO Daniel Chait and President Jon Stross present a step-by-step guide for implementing a structured hiring process that attracts great talent and turns hiring into a competitive advantage. Their proven method, which has been embraced by thousands of organizations, helps companies build higher-performing teams, reduce bias in hiring decisions and create more opportunities for candidates from diverse backgrounds.
Talent Makers is based on the authors’ experiences working with more than 4,000 companies that use Greenhouse hiring software and services. Throughout the book, they provide their own first-hand insights and anecdotes, complemented by in-depth interviews with executives from leading brands like Alphabet, Stripe, Airbnb and Whole Foods Market – some of the “Talent Makers” with whom the authors have worked.
“The potential for people to do something remarkable has everything to do with being in the right role, on the right team, at the right time,” said Chait and Stross. “Our goal for this book is to help companies become great at hiring. Because when they are, companies have the confidence to dream bigger, think bolder and take on what’s next.”
Talent Makers is arranged in a clear progression that takes readers through all the steps necessary to build a structured hiring process that allows companies to:
- Define ideal candidates by the business objectives of the job. Recruiters and hiring managers learn to work together and get specific about job descriptions, candidates and goals.
- Use a deliberate and consistent process to evaluate all candidates. Everyone will be informed and aligned, allowing the process to move swiftly.
- Base hiring decisions on data and evidence. This not only eliminates unconscious bias, but also speeds up the process – resulting in better offers and better hires.
- Learn and iterate. Using this process, companies will consistently get better at hiring and distance themselves from the competition.
