Hiring can be a major challenge for founders as they progress through the startup lifecycle. Whether you have 5 employees or 50, employees are the backbone of your startup and can mean the difference between success and failure.
That’s likely why founders at startups cite hiring as their top concern over other issues like revenue growth and customer acquisition. In a survey, 74 percent of startup founders said they worry about hiring good people.
In a startup with a small workforce, each individual hire has the potential to greatly impact your trajectory. Knowing when to hire and fire is crucial and managing your team throughout the different stages of the startup lifecycle means establishing a strong company culture and intuitive workplace policies.
Over the last 30 years, College Recruiter Founder Steven Rothberg has had to navigate the HR challenges that come with growing your workforce from zero to twenty employees. He also helps enterprise companies rapidly scale their workforce and understands the vital role talent acquisition and management plays in growth.
“The biggest pain isn’t growing from 10 to 100 employees,” says Steven. “It is growing from zero to one. But there are ways to minimize that pain and allow you to focus on building your business.”
In a webinar for Founders Network, Steven will share tips on hiring throughout the startup lifecycle, derived from his decades working in talent acquisition and his own experience adding employees at his company.
