I had the chance to sit down to discuss scaling a business (and the important role HR plays in that) with Seth Buechley, a serial-entrepreneur focused on connecting leaders with the ideas, resources, and people they need to grow value in their businesses. If you want to hear some of the reasons why you shouldn't model your startup after Google-like companies, listen to the most recent episode of the Business Done Right podcast here: https://www.sethbuechley.com/blog/why-start
Thank you to Christian Bartsch for hosting me on The Growth Zone Show! We talked about how lesser-known high-growth companies can attract great people in today's competitive environment. A direct link to the episode is here. Following are a few of the key tips:
- Be clear about what you're looking for. - Tell a compelling story to candidates (WIIFM - what's in it for me?!). - Hire leaders who are talent magnets. - Don't get in your own way (i.e. awkward selection processes).
