The Pipeline Opportunity: How data inform outreach recruiting

This presentation will outline the journey a company went through to design an outreach recruitment strategy in a highly distributed context. It will demonstrate that, while geographic distribution adds a lot of complexity to recruitment, it also provides a great opportunity to target recruitment activities and improve their ROI. Attendees will come away with a generalizable approach, and a related technical toolset, that will enable any organization with more than one office to go through a similar process.
