Your people are your business.
Hire like you mean it.

If you're a business owner, investor, or manager, you know the joy—or misery—involved with adding a new person to your team. 

You also know you need a strong team that you can trust and delegate crucial responsibility to. 

The biggest lever for making this happen is by translating your business needs into actionable hiring criteria. And then implementing a scalable talent system that consistently finds the right person for each role. 

That system should make data-driven decisions to maximize accuracy and minimize unconscious bias. It should also provide a great candidate experience and reliably attract top performers that are a uniquely good fit for your company. 


Build exceptional teams. Consistently.

On some level you know how important talent is (who doesn’t?) but it’s still a challenge to find the time and headspace to make a significant change from your current processes. After all, you have a day job. As a result, dialing in your approach to recruiting, interviewing and hiring the right people can feel overwhelming and a “we’ll get to it soon” priority. Thankfully, we’ve distilled it into a step-by-step methodology that we can teach to you and your key team members.

Welcome to the talent algorithm. Talgo helps you build sustainable competitive advantage in talent acquisition: You’ll define your company’s roles with clarity and precision, learn to source high-performers from diverse backgrounds, and master the fundamentals of data-driven interviewing. This empowers you to filter out costly hiring mistakes, deliver an exceptional candidate experience, and fill your teams with top talent working effectively towards your shared vision.
