Building a Talent Pipeline

Our July Pop-Up Event, “The Future of Attraction: Building a Talent Pipeline” featured spotlight guests Madan Ahuja (Le Tote) and Mark Hartley (Twilio). They sat down with Greg White (Sway Ventures) to discuss creative methods for sourcing candidates and building a company-wide recruiting culture. Our recruiting experts have faced these challenges head on and are excited to share their tips and tricks with you.

They shared with us their unique approach to prospecting and building a talent pipeline, embracing referrals without bonuses—and why this tactic can be so successful, ways to prioritize both diversity and referrals to build an inclusive organization, and tips for including recruiting and referral education in your onboarding program.


Things we referred to at the event (that you are definitely going to want to click on):

  • Those nine values we kept mentioning, guiding Twilio to build the future of communications

  • Everyone needs a friend, but at Le Tote, everyone has a buddy.

  • Checking for references? Be sure to ask these questions.

  • While employees leave for several reasons, one of the biggest (if not the biggest) reason is their manager. Madan shares 13 signs to keep an eye out for when employee behavior changes in the workplace.

Special thanks again to our spotlight guests, Madan Ahuja and Mark Hartley!
