DJ Patil:

There’s a big difference between “hiring” and “talent”. I’m continually surprised how rarely I see people put down their strategy for talent compared to hiring. It’s so prevalent, in fact, you’ll often see on a company’s priorities a bullet of “hiring”. And that slight shift in wording fundamentally sets up the wrong dynamics. Hiring, is a sub-bullet of talent and if you’re focusing on hiring you’ll be quickly setting up a revolving door. However, if you’re focusing on talent, you now can create a strategy to build a great team.
