One of the key components of leading a successful organization is finding, hiring, and developing the highest quality people.

It is hard to become a World Class organization that way.
While researching ways to recruit and hire better in the 21st Century, I came across Vervoe, a blog that is dedicated to helping companies hire better talent through the use of Artificial Intelligence. By using AI-powered skill testing to identify top performers, Vervoe has changed the way many companies identify talent.
