Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Derek Baltuskonis, Director of Talent Acquisition at Intuit. You probably know that Intuit is a giant in the information technology space, well known for its flagship products QuickBooks, TurboTax and Mint. Along with being known for its popular products, Intuit is also widely recognized as a great place to work with a unique corporate culture that contributes to the company’s long-term success. Intuit was ranked #13 on this year’s Fortune 100 Best Places to Work list up from #34 last year. The company is headquartered in Mountain View California and has just under 8,000 employees.
During our conversation, Derek and I discussed the following topics among others:
- Derek began his career in Finance. How and why did he make the move to HR?
- How do Intuit’s company values shape their recruiting and retention strategies?
- Derek discusses Intuit’s strategies for ensuring that the diversity of their workforce is robust.
- As a company, Intuit has really embraced social media – with almost 150,000 followers on LinkedIn, 224,000+ likes on Facebook, and one of the highest rated CEOs on Glassdoor. Learn about Intuit leverages their social presence in their recruiting efforts.
