A common trait among the Heroes of Hiring is how they work tirelessly to improve results. This week’s hero, Shahid Wazed, is the embodiment of this attribute. Shahid is a recruitment automation pioneer, having developed sourcing strategies that have reduced effort, increased hiring speed, and cut costs (he recently brought in top talent for hard-to-fill position for just $52). He’s also the Host of the Top Talent Summit, a talent acquisition event in its sixth year serving the Canadian talent acquisition community. If that weren’t enough, he’s a Forbes Contributor, a member of the Forbes Human Resources Council, and an award winning podcaster. Thank you Shahid for your tireless efforts and the heroic work you do each day!

ABOUT THE HEROES OF HIRING
We’ve all heard it said that a company’s most important asset is its people. When we say we love a company, what we’re really saying is we love the work being done by the exceptional people in these organizations. Talented employees who do outstanding work are the secret ingredients that make their companies great. That’s why recruiting and hiring is so important. Each person involved in the hiring process is influencing the future of their company. These individuals are also impacting one of the most important aspects of people’s lives—their careers. The individuals who play a role in the hiring process are changing companies and lives, making hiring a heroic act.
The hiring heroism of a select group of people goes above and beyond. These unsung hiring heroes are making a lasting difference on a grand scale. That’s the reason for this distinction—the Hiring Hero of the Week. The hope in bestowing this honor is that people across the globe can celebrate and learn from these truly amazing human beings.
