Creating a Recruitment Process Attuned to a Company’s Entrepreneurial Culture
An early stage search engine optimization company.
Talent acquisition was a clear priority for the newly hired CEO, but the pressure to recruit and on board across the company was far outpacing the time and capacity of the management team. The company lacked a user friendly talent management system to make informed decisions about their human capital needs – but it was worried about creating cumbersome recruiting processes that would undermine its distinctive, people-focused culture.
We developed a flexible recruitment process that outlined responsibilities and ownership in keeping with the company’s entrepreneurial business approach, plus worked with the leadership team to couch them in interviewing skills and how to use and tailor the process to build management strength.
The company now has in place a long-term human resources strategy that supports their culture and their needs for future leadership hires. At the same time, we helped them recruit the firm’s first VP of Human Resources, who could continue to carry the new program forward.
