    S3E6: Does Your Company's Reputation Play a Role in Attracting and Keeping Your Dream Team?

    S3E6: Does Your Company's Reputation Play a Role in Attracting and Keeping Your Dream Team?

    Our favorite definition of a reputation, or brand, comes from Jeff Bezos: "Your brand is what people say about you when you are not in the room"
    Looking through this lens, it makes complete sense that your brand (what people are saying about you) plays an ENORMOUS role in attracting and keeping your dream team.
    In today's episode, we dig deeper into this topic with Katie McConnell Olson, Founder and CEO of Hire Education Consulting Group.
