In this Tactical Tuesday episode, Sam and Vivien discuss the importance of pay in the recruitment process and how it affects job seekers’ decision-making. They emphasize the need for transparent communication about pay from the early stages of the hiring process — including in job postings and screening calls. The conversation highlights the importance of negotiation skills and the role of trust in building strong working relationships — and ultimately focuses in on the takeaway that building trust with top talent includes being transparent about the things that matter the most to them. We’re all searching for something, and being as open and honest as we can be in the process makes everyone’s lives easier!
