Jason Hanold: Using Technology to Hire the Best in 2013

With technological advancements being embraced by many businesses, more and more employees are using networking environments to connect and collaborate with coworkers, and generally boost corporate productivity. Similarly, human resource professionals also benefit from networking and optimizing search results, both of which can allow hiring managers to select the best possible candidate for a job.

In prior years, human resource professionals used references and pipelines to acquire the ideal candidate, but according to the Corporate Executive Board Company, in 2013 the best human resource leaders will distinguish themselves from others in the industry by building talent clouds instead of pipelines. These clouds are made up of candidates who are ready to work immediately once a position opens.

Jason Hanold is founder and managing partner of Illinois-based Hanold Associates, LLC, which focuses on hiring human resource officers and generalists as well as talent managers. Prior to his work at that firm, Mr. Hanold was the managing director at Russell Reynolds Associates.
