Using Algorithms for Better Recruitment, with Michael Yinger

By People Leaders | People Leaders Podcast

Recruitment is one of the biggest headaches in business, but it really doesn’t need to be. We speak to CEO and co-founder of Resume Sieve, Michael Yinger, about how you can automate the recruitment process and get really clever with the algorithms. 

Once you’ve got the right tools, as Michael says, you can “take the drudgery out of the recruitment process.” What’s more, the very same thinking can help you manage people once you’ve hired them, and you can even avoid the hardest bits of the recruitment process altogether by hiring from within. 

Michael has some very impressive corporate experience, way beyond the realm of recruitment, so he really understands what busy leaders need in order to recruit and manage effectively. You’ll be amazed at the sophistication of the systems he has helped pioneer.
