The talent acquisition teams of companies like Walmart, Juspay, Tata, Hero, and Flipkart made candidates chase their firms, rather than the other way around.
These companies slew their hiring strategy by:
--> Engaging with the right candidates in a market full of noise
--> Hiring rich talent in fewer resources and time
--> Building a strong employer brand
--> Tapping the earlier unreachable talent (democratizing the process)
--> Testing candidates skills accurately and fairly
