Dana Safa

Sometimes, taking a chance has huge benefits. It can also save lives. 

Leaders need to start thinking outside of the box. There are pools of talent in places they may have never thought of before. People struggling with poverty and homelessness are hungry for work. They just need the opportunity.

In partnership with the International Franchise Association, our Founder and CEO, Sam Caucci, sat down with non-profit leaders to talk about alternative pathways of hiring and the importance of reaching different pools of potential employees. 


By tapping into other pathways to recruit and hire new talent, both businesses and communities can thrive. These are our top 15 highlights from the webinar “Alternative Recruiting Paths & Talent Pools.” If you want to know why you should shake up your hiring process, keep scrolling…
