On this episode of the Employee Cycle podcast, we have Ana Recio, SVP of Talent at SoFi, joining us to discuss how to know if you’re hiring the best person, and she describes what is meant by the “best” person. 

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • First off, how did Ana Recio get into the HR world?
  • Secondly, what does the “best” person mean?
  • Next, how do you align and define what “best” looks like beyond the job description?
  • Do you think it’s always the best practice to use past performance to project future performance?
  • What does “quality of hire” mean and how do you measure it?
  • Start small – Find one talent segment to hone in on. Conduct the analysis. Learn a ton. Then evolve throughout your organization. Test, iterate, learn, adjust.
