2: Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good — Alicia Parr

March 8th, 2019

Thanks to Alicia Parr for sharing her wisdom on this episode of The Candidate Experience Podcast where we discuss the good, bad, and ugly of the candidate journey. Alicia is the Principal of Performentor, a management consultancy where they use people science to help you grow your business fast with fewer speed bumps. She paraphrased the quote attributed to the French philosopher, Voltaire “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good”. We couldn’t agree more, incremental improvements to the candidate experience are all good.

Here’s the quote I read to start off this podcast from Peter Cappelli … Companies often say people are their most important asset. But, for many, you’d never know it by the way they actually go about hiring those people.

Also, here’s the link to the full article The Mistakes Firms Make With Hiring. Sorry it’s behind the WSJ’s paywall.

Thanks for listening and please subscribe!
