So in this episode, we examine the process of developing a strategy, brand and even EVP after you've already built a bunch of "stuff."

It’s a recipe for talent acquisition success: Take two parts marketing and branding experience, one part recruiting and talent acquisition thought leadership. Add a dash of fearlessness and a willingness to breaking unwritten rules. Shake well and serve in the funniest container you can find.
