3 things that you’ve learned about hiring and retaining great talent?

Instead of trying to hire writers, we look for writing talent from people who have experience entertaining children. So Disney performers tend to make much better writers for kids than people with a career in writing.

The idea of this is to look outside the box at the essential skills required for the job instead of going after people with a resume that job. People with the “resume” are often too expensive for us, and less talented at the essential skills required.

Having a bilingual operator is HUGE for attracting talent outside the US.
