Deep Dive: Recruiting strategies to successfully grow your team

Deep Dive: Recruiting strategies to successfully grow your team

Last week we hosted already the second "Deep Dive" webinar about recruiting strategies in our joint long-term event series "How to scale up your business" with our partner Qonto. Nick from the Uplink team talked to Torben Rabe, who is leading the growth story for Qonto in Germany as Country Director, and Sebastian Britz, the CEO & Co-Founder of DIGITTY, whose AI solution for project management reduces the complexity and unpredictability of digital projects.

Some highlights of the webinar were:

  • Discussion about the recruiting trends in the last years
  • Elements of successful recruiting strategies
  • Impact of social media for employer branding
  • Talent acquisition channels
  • Significance of referral systems
  • Relevance of freelancers
  • Talent assessment

It was very inspiring to analyze the different hiring practices and challenges from the perspective of a startup as well as from the experience of a successful grown-up. Most insightful was in particular the analysis of opportunities that arise from increased remote work and the resulting internationalization that is becoming even more prevalent.

We are already looking forward to the next Deep Dive, which will probably happen at the beginning of October after a short summer break. The whole event was recorded and you can rewatch the webinar at any time on our Crowdcast page.
