Podcast EP 23 - What Not to Do When Attracting Talent
In this episode we talk to Kristian James, Founder of recruitment consultancy Hawkwood Partners about what startups can do to attract the best talent they can afford.
Next to running out of money, recruiting talented staff members is one of the biggest challenges a startup faces. In this episode we talk to Kristian James, Founder of recruitment consultancy Hawkwood Partners about what startups can do to attract the best talent they can afford.
Topics include why credibility is crucial for early-stage startups competing for talent, why hiring from your competitors can actually be a disadvantage and the changing role of HR. Particularly in startups where the position is increasingly viewed as a value-adding role, rather than one that’s there to mop up the mess.
