Talent Acquisition influencer, podcaster, analyst, strategist, writer, speaker, consultant, advisor, investor, and journalist—at the core a TA “thought provocateur.”
If someone else were to describe William, they’d use words like; influencer, podcaster, analyst, strategist, writer, speaker, consultant, advisor, investor, & journalist & they’d be right on some level. At his core, William is a “thought provocateur” in that he evaluates what is & questions why. He’s studied all aspects of HR & TA (recruiting) for 20+ years. This includes both practitioners of HR & TA as well as the tech that serve these practitioners.

Title: In her own words:
My secrets behind recruiting the best talent? People over paper. Fresh ideas over process for process’s sake. As attitudes about work change and jobs evolve, helping people find the right opportunities and organizations find the right person continues to be my passion. I help organizations achieve people goals in three essential ways.
1. Recruiting isn’t just filling a position, checking the box, and moving on to the next. It’s about building relationships to truly understand how work fits in a person’s life. And it’s about finding talent in unexpected places and cultivating the skills the organization needs.
• I created our Introduce Yourself program so candidates can record a video describing what they want to do vs. searching a career site. Recruiters spot the potential and match the person to a position.
• I believe the best candidates come from inspiring current employees to dream big and then supporting those dreams through targeted tuition assistance, up-skilling, and certifications. It’s also vital to flex when you can regarding locations or schedules, so you meet employees where they are and find the very best fit.
• Community outreach is crucial for creating a diverse pipeline, and it’s one of the most important parts of a talent acquisition leader’s role. For me, this includes serving on boards and committees, collaborating with local high schools and programs, and establishing a Community Outreach recruiter role.
2. When talent acquisition is backed by a people-centric culture, organizations succeed. People perform at their highest levels, and organizational efficiencies are optimized because work gets done by the right people in the right roles.
• I work with leaders to examine team structure, workloads, and people to identify needed resources and align skill sets. I recommend an exercise called “cards,” where work is grouped by what needs to continue and what can be stopped. Then, we place the cards at the appropriate skill levels. Light bulb moments are guaranteed.
• Onboarding is critical to a new hire’s success. I reimagined our program to create a welcoming experience that reinforces why people join the organization while seamlessly completing all the paperwork.
3. Yesterday’s strategies may not work tomorrow. Whether it’s making minor tweaks or adapting to a global pandemic, I’ve learned creative thinking and being open to new approaches pay off. Right now, recruiting top talent takes an experience-first focus emphasizing speed and flexibility, along with outside-the-box programs like returnships and re-recruiting.
