In today’s episode, Mark and David are joined by Kate Thrumble, Head of People at ScreenCloud, who joined the company in April 2019 after a corporate HR career in fashion, recruitment, and advertising. Kate talks about making the transition to startup culture and how it’s possible to implement structure and processes without “going corporate” or slowing down an agile business. They discuss why cracks tend to appear when a startup nears 50 employees and how HR might seem like an expense at first but soon turns into a cost saving thanks to things like excellent onboarding and career development, which improve people retention.
