Session Title: Attracting top talent while scaling quickly

The traditional hiring process is broken. Both companies and candidates are suffering. Finding motivated candidates that fit into the company culture you’ve worked so hard to build is difficult for even the most magical of unicorns. Mehul will speak to the way founders and executives can build their teams quickly without sacrificing quality.

Finding talent that fits in with your company’s culture is just as important as hard skills, especially early on. For example, your first sales and marketing hires will have a lasting impact on those teams’ traditions, processes, and personalities, so make sure they’re in line with your long-term vision. Make salary a non-issue: Too many companies save awkward compensation conversations until the end, but salary and benefits packages should be a part of your first conversation with a candidate. Putting transparent, data-based policies in place that take the mystery out of salaries, raises and promotions. Embrace the future of work: The way people think about work is changing, and flexibility is key. Independent contractors will make up 50% of the workforce by 2020, which will enable companies to quickly scale and execute on time-sensitive projects, save money on agency fees, eliminate administrative work and keep their time-to-hire low. Build a pipeline: Relying on personal referrals will only last for so long and hiring a recruiter can be expensive and fruitless. Using recruiting tools, like Hired, will give companies access to top candidates who have already been vetted and are actively looking for new opportunities.
