Mechanize Your Hiring Process to Make Better Decisions

Mechanize Your Hiring Process to Make Better Decisions | Big Data & Digital Marketing |
Hiring the best is hard because there's so much human variation. Amazon's Anurag Gupta shares a system that always raises the bar.
Luca Naso's insight:

"Good intentions don't work, but a repeatable, measurable and improvable process can" by Anurag Gupta, at Amazon.


Nobody wants to hire the wrong person and nobody wants to work for the wrong company. By following processes, it is possible to reduce the probabilities for things like these to happen.


1. Raise the bar, steadily and honestly;

2. Build a hiring funnel. By consistently repeating a process, you improve it. Do yourself a favour: filter candidates at each step;

3. Don't go easy on culture. This is the hardest to standardize, and yet it's one of the main reason why employee will not stay.

Big Data for Talent Acquisition

Big Data for Talent Acquisition | Big Data & Digital Marketing |

When I took the helm as VP of global talent acquisition I was surprised to learn that the data within the talent acquisition function was not up to the standards the Company lives by.

Luca Naso's insight:

This is an interesting story about a successful Big Data project in recruiting.
Here are the 6 main steps of the plan:
1. Go to the Source (to get the data)
2. Get Help (to get a good plan)
3. Get Centralized (to increase efficiency)
4. Take Ownership (to retain competitive advantage)
5. Set Standards (otherwise all efforts will be useless)
6. Embrace Social (because social is where people put their data)

Data analytics for HR: how to make effective recruitment

Data analytics for HR: how to make effective recruitment | Big Data & Digital Marketing |

"If we can apply science to improving the selection, management, and alignment of people, the returns can be tremendous."

Luca Naso's insight:

Big Data help to make better decisions also when it comes to choose a "person".

1. Tune hiring policies

2. Focused recruitment marketing

3. Evaluation based on "public" work

4. Proactive hiring

5. Recruiters still matter (and they need to update their own skills)
