More often than not the discussions around startups focus on product development, engineering, growth and innovation.
However, none of this gets done without the people and talent around the table. The HR function for startups is often not well understood – and oftentimes in the earliest stages of a startup it seems the only thing that gets prioritized is recruiting as teams sprint towards milestones and deliverables.
But with the challenges that have struck Uber, Wework and other companies that have blitzscaled, people and culture have come back to the forefront of the discussion around startups. How do startups grow and scale while also building a solid organizational foundation for success?
Hear from people leaders that have seen companies and unicorns through hypergrowth across every industry: consumer, B2B, Saas, media and gaming. Our panelists have all led the HR function at fast growing companies. They bring a blend of enterprise and startup experience to break down the core ingredients to building a successful and agile HR function. We’ll talk about how they define success in the role, as well as tips to identify if a startup is “ready” for a head of HR. You’ll learn how they bring data to the discussion to drive important initiatives at the executive level even in environments where resources are scarce. And you’ll hear why its so important to develop your managers to give yourself leverage as an HR leader. We’ll also get some real life anecdotes about the challenges that HR leaders personally face in carrying such a critical role in supporting a startup’s most precious assets – their people.
