Vice President of Talent Acquisition, Change Healthcare
Jose Carbia is an effective communicator. That label can mean a lot of things, but in his role as vice president of talent acquisition at Change Healthcare, it means leading a team that spends a lot of time actually talking to candidates. It also means that good news and bad news is delivered quickly, by phone – not through email – and with real recognition of and respect for the time, work and emotional investment that job candidates put into their job search.
Jose is also a transformative leader. In fact, he has more than 25 years of experience in talent acquisition, 21 of which he spent leading and transforming recruiting functions within Fortune 500 companies. Now, at Change Healthcare, he leads a team of 48 and is responsible for more than 3,000 full-time hires and 2,000 flexible, seasonal hires every year. Jose’s latest project has been improving the candidate experience, with a focus on candidate communication, which we spoke with him about from his office in Atlanta.
