1. PLAY TO WIN

Create a culture that fosters a business-value mind-set. Hire people with the courage to be irreverent. Show employees how they connect to the overall business.

2. GO BROAD

Hire people with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, beyond classic IT. Provide access to other parts of the organization.

3. TELL THE STORY

Get people excited about the mission of the organization. Convince them they are on a winning team. Sell yourselves and what you do.

4. GO DEEP WITH SCHOOLS

Deepen relationships with colleges and universities as well as other strategic partners.
