Why It’s Hard for You to Hire Creative People

Creative people appear messy and illegible to hiring managers who are solely focussed on process.

The hiring process for creative people is broken. That’s because creativity is viewed with suspicion by organizations today.

If a truly creative person slips through the HR department’s filters, it’s because they’ve had to hide their identity. Businesses need creative people but they’d prefer new hires to follow stale processes rather than bring new ideas.

Time for this madness to stop! My new podcast episode is for hiring managers who are prepared to get honest about recruiting talented people.
