How the hunt for ESG talent is evolving ESG Insider: A podcast from S&P Global

    • Business News

Sustainability and ESG have evolved significantly in recent years — and alongside this change, recruiting in the space has also changed.  In this Labor Day weekend episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we go behind the scenes of ESG recruiting in an interview with Kurt Harrison, a Partner with the global executive search firm Russell Reynolds Associates where he is Co-Head of the Global Sustainability Practice. 
Kurt says the demand for ESG talent is “insatiable.” He gives us insight into the kinds of questions he gets from job candidates, and also the kinds of things companies are looking for in their sustainability hires.
