Sharing stories of how your company made an impact with employees may not come across as a traditional recruiting method, but it might be time to consider this strategy.

During DiversityInc Best Practices Recruiting High Potential event, David Rodriguez, who is the Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer at Marriott International, explained why it’s important to have high potential talent find you.

In the following video, Rodriguez shares why Marriott (No.13 on the Top 50 Diversity list) decided to engage the public with their stories as a way to attract high potentials and why it’s important to switch the focus from pursuing high potentials to having them search for you.
