“The best companies don’t hire. They attract.”
For over a decade, Brad Owens helped Fortune 500 companies (including Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Nationwide, Freddie Mac and many others) attract and hire talent at all levels of their organizations. Brad now uses his experience to make an impact on smaller companies as the “Robin Hood of Hiring”. He coaches leaders and top level HR professionals to solve problems attracting, hiring and retaining their teams.
Brad is also the host of the “Small Business Hiring Podcast” where he interviews top companies, CEOs and industry experts to share their strategies for building high performing teams.
All of this experience has led him to one key takeaway. That the best companies don’t hire. They attract. The best way to attract talent to your organization is through creating a magnetic corporate culture.

This episode is sponsored by NutriFitt. I tried NutriFitt’s whey protein supplement after meeting the founder and hearing his journey and commitment to quality. I like to support up and coming businesses so I gave it a try and was impressed. It mixes immediately and the chocolate flavor actually tastes like chocolate, not like some chemical engineering committee’s overdone attempt. It has no artificial sweeteners, colors, or preservatives. Plus, it includes probiotics and is easy on the stomach.
The true taste test? My teenage daughter even likes it.
There are a lot of supplement brands on the market and NutriFitt is my favorite. Because you’re awesome and a listener of Imperfect Action you save 15% on every order. Just use the code TAKEACTION (one word, ALL CAPS) at checkout.
(My personal favorite: Double chocolate whey protein.)
