The Greenhouse podcast: Talent Makers, featuring Jacqui Maguire and Johanny Mateo

TM podcast 2022

Talent Makers are leaders who believe that talent is their top business priority. Rather than seeing hiring solely as the role of People teams, Talent Makers champion better hiring and strengthen DE&I across their entire organizations to achieve business success. On the Greenhouse Talent Makers podcast, join host Micah Gebreyes, Senior Manager of Editorial Content at Greenhouse, as she sits down with hiring managers and recruiters who are changing the game in diverse and inclusive hiring.

In this episode, Micah is joined by Tacombi’s Jacqui Maguire, Vice President of People, and Johanny Mateo, Director of Talent. We’ll explore how the restaurant industry is embracing inclusive hiring and how innovative programs at Tacombi enable their employees to thrive.

Diverse and equitable hiring is both the right thing to do and the smart thing to do.”
