More than ever, talent plays a crucial part in the success or failure of your business. Top candidates can propel your vision, while a bad hire can be detrimental. That's a lot of pressure - especially once you reach a period of fast-growth! Join Jill Felska, founder of Want To Work There, for a two-hour interactive workshop that will explore the process and strategies that successful startups use to find, attract, and hire the best possible talent.

Materials to Bring
A laptop (optional), examples of previously used job descriptions (if you have any), and an open mind.

What We Will Do
  • Share best practices that successful startups use to source and hire talent in times of growth.
  • Deconstruct the traditional job description and learn how to write one with more value that will attract the right talent.
  • Uncover best practices around interviewing and how values-driven interviewing can improve your retention.
  • Explore what it means to have an employer brand as a startup.
  • Learn about the different types of small business work environments and establish which category your company fits into.

What You Will Have After
  • A list of values important to you and the organization, that you can use to guide interviews.
  • A list of hiring strategies aligned with your business needs.
  • More inspiration and greater confidence around your ability to hire successfully!
