Roundtable - The Talent War Is Here

Updated: Nov 30, 2021



This week on the JobSync Recruitment Marketing Roundtable we are focusing on what some say will be a Talent War this summer and how you can prepare according to our next guests, Michael Sarraille and George Randle, with having a Talent Mindset.


Some are predicting this summer to be one of the most challenging moments to hire in recent times. If you aren’t planning and thinking about how you will be recruiting this summer then this may be the most well spent hour of your week!


We will focus on why adopting a Talent Mindset is possibly the single greatest weapon in the war for talent. We will also discuss how organizations who reflect this mindset have talent acquisition teams that are unstoppable in attracting the best talent.


Mike Sarraille is the CEO of EF Overwatchan executive search and talent advisory firm, and leadership consultant with Echelon Front. He is a former Recon Marine and retired US Navy SEAL officer with twenty years of experience in Special Operations, including the elite Joint Special Operations Command.


George Randle is Managing Partner at the Talent War Group and the  Strategic Advisor to EF Overwatch, former US Army officer, and Vice President of Global Talent Acquisition at Forcepoint, a human-centric cybersecurity company. George has more than two decades of experience in talent acquisition at Fortune 100 and Fortune 1000 firms.


Michael Sarraille and George Randle are also the authors of The Talent War, which explores how U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) assess, select, and develop their world-class talent.


We will discuss:

  1. Are HR and talent acquisition teams properly structured for today’s business environment?

  2. What is the Talent Mindset?

  3. What is a company’s strongest competitive advantage?

  4. Why is Special Operations so good at picking talent?

  5. How businesses can thrive by focusing on talent?

As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.
