Date : 24 Oct 2016
Presenters : Kiran Nandavarapu, Director-Insights | Kalpana Devi Ramakrishnan, Associate Manager, Research - Course5
Most leading companies are not very outspoken about how they operate their business, or plan their strategies and future moves. However, a company's hiring data can reveal valuable insights and allow you to read in-between the lines. When these insights are correlated with secondary source data, press releases or interviews, it can prove to be a formidable and factual representation of the competitor's focus and momentum in various areas, including new business/products, geographies, and verticals or industries.
This webinar is applicable and highly relevant to all industries that operate at an ultra-fast, dynamic pace and where there are frequent activities that disrupt the course or direction of the industry or market. Attendees will learn how to:
- Understand competitor moves and centers of focus using hiring data
- Leverage insights around new business/products, geographies, vertical/industries and more
- Analyze hiring data and various parameters to identify the strategic moves, investments and priorities
- Compare hiring data periodically and steadily track competitor tactics
