How Top Job Boards Make Money

Even with the growing importance of technology, people play a pivotal role in the success of any organization. A recent study by the consulting firm Korn Ferry, along with the Centre for Economics and Business Research, put the global economic value of human capital at $1.2 quadrillion, more than 2x the value of physical capital like technology. That figure is expected to grow in the coming years.

At the same time, the widespread adoption of remote teams has given companies the ability to work with high-quality talent anywhere in the world. But this freedom brings a new challenge: how to find talent — and be discovered  — in a sea of noise.

For help with this, companies are increasingly turning to online talent marketplaces and internet job boards.
