Businesses have never done as much hiring as they do today. They’ve never spent as much money doing it. And they’ve never done a worse job of it. Hiring talent remains the number one concern of CEOs in the most recent Conference Board Annual Survey; it’s also the top concern of the entire executive suite. Why do employers spend so much on something so important while knowing so little about whether it works?
Join HBR for a live taping of Harvard Business Review’s highly acclaimed HBR IdeaCast podcast at the Kimpton Nine Zero Hotel. Host Alison Beard will interview Peter Cappelli, author of the May-June 2019 HBR article, "Your Approach to Hiring Is All Wrong." Cappelli is the George W. Taylor Professor of Management at the Wharton School and a director of its Center for Human Resources. He is the author of several books, including Will College Pay Off? A Guide to the Most Important Financial Decision You’ll Ever Make (PublicAffairs, 2015).
HBR IdeaCast is a weekly podcast featuring the leading thinkers in business and management.
