Moneyball Recruiting: The Simple Science Behind Great Hiring

2016 Talent Symposium
Workplace Application: This session will show you the strategies behind how to make the most effective hiring decisions for your organization.
The concept of “Moneyball” came from Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics and how the team used analytics to hire the best players for the best price. This session will show you how you can use the “Moneyball” philosophy and science to hire the best people for your organization. Over the next decade, hiring will only increase in difficulty, and those organizations willing to do things differently will have the advantage in attracting the best talent. It’s not complicated, and every size recruiting department can use these concepts to hire better. “Moneyball” recruiting isn’t about hiring the best, it’s about hiring the best for you and your circumstances. Come learn how your organization can reach higher levels through smarter hiring. This session will help you: 
• Learn the concepts and strategies behind analytical hiring. 
• Gain an understanding about which employees and hires bring the most value to your organization. 
• Learn how to develop a strategic talent acquisition philosophy that fits your specific organization.
