Things I've Learned Building GoodSeeker.

#1. Volunteer and Staff Stories are Golden

Stories about staff and volunteers making an impact are priceless for engagement, recruiting ... even fundraising.

#2. Culture Matters, Not Merch

Consistently and equitably spotlighting the small things that matter make employees want to stay, not swag bags.

#3. We All Have Hidden Talents

Bo in finance is a research wizard. Who knew? The most attractive companies give hidden talents a chance to shine.

#4. Mindful Leaders Seek Stories

Leaders behind great employer brands are taking more time to listen and learn from employees and their experiences.

I'm excited to meet anyone open to exploring how stories can be used as a tool to shape culture, attract the right talent, and stand out from competitors.
