In this episode of the Talent Acquisition Leaders podcast, host Ryan Dull sits down with Aryeh Lehrer, VP of Talent Management & Acquisition at Comcast. He discusses his career and how he and his company are adapting to the massive changes that are occurring in the talent acquisition space.
Aryeh believes that in today’s environment you have to look at more than just external recruiting. He focuses on his company’s talent management strategy and development of their internal employees, succession planning, and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives that they have.
He says that there is a real balancing act between working within the efficiency and speed that is present in today’s hiring space and still taking the time to do proper diligence and assess candidates in the right way to make sure they are a fit for the role.
Aryeh closes with his advice to people breaking into the profession, which is, “test, test, test, pilot, pilot, pilot.” In other words, keep assessing your processes and decisions, and don’t be afraid to evolve in your thinking and change course if it is the right thing to do.
