Baseball Icon Billy Beane Speaks about Hiring Based on Data, vs. Gut

Baseball icon Billy Beane spoke at the 2019 Rocky Mountain Corporate Growth Conference in Denver and confirmed what TalenTrust CEO Kathleen Quinn Votaw has been advising clients for years: hire based on data, not your gut. 

Emotions cannot measure skill, cultural fit, or attitude. Nor can they provide the long-term strategy you need to find and keep top talent who can grow your company. It’s stats that build the teams who get the runs and wins. Leave the emotion for the crowds (or the customers), emphasizes Kathleen.

“We were impressed with the meticulous, methodical process and tools TalenTrust used, and the results they could demonstrate.  The talent we’ve been able to attract has helped us build a platform that we can leverage as we continue our growth.” 

Mike McCurdie CEO, SAFEbuilt
