This Huge Organization Is Using an Intriguing New Tool to Forecast Its Difficulty in Recruiting

An organization that brings on more than 70,000 hires annually has contracted with a small group of number-crunchers to build it a fascinating recruiting-difficulty tool.

It used a team from Rand Corporation to figure out how hard it will be to recruit, based not only on how many people are available but also on how variables like signing bonuses could change recruiting difficulty.

I talk about this little-known project with Rand’s Jeffrey Wenger in the 14-minute video below.
