Recruit Employees That Fit in the Organization's CultureBrian Bobo, Former CIO of Greenway Health, on Challenges of Talent Acquisition
Acquiring and retaining the right talent can be a struggle for CIOs. One of the major challenges is identifying candidates who, besides possessing the right skills, also fit the organizational culture and values. Furthermore, the rapidly changing skill requirements have made it difficult for the C-suite to ensure their workforce and technology remain relevant and competitive. Retention can also be challenging, as organizations need to provide competitive compensation and opportunities for growth and development, and a conducive environment to prevent resignations.

"CIOs and tech recruiters often overlook talented candidates who have the willingness to learn and grow by focusing too much on lengthy job requirements instead. AI automation has the potential to revolutionize the future of hiring and retaining skilled workers," says Brian Bobo, former CIO of Greenway Health.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Bobo discusses:
- Challenges in acquiring the right talent;
- Importance of automation in making employees more creative;
- Role of technology in the future of hiring.
Bobo has led IT and cyber teams in both Fortune 500 and mid-sized companies. As a brigadier general in the National Guard, he led a team of over 600 people in overseas operations, including cyber activities. In the past, he was the CISO at Sun Country Airlines and senior director of global information security at Ecolab.
