Talent Acquisition for Startups

Your talent acquisition machine is crucial to your startup's success. Unfortunately most startups don't have the resources to hire an experienced talent acquisition lead. This can often create a vicious cycle of disorganized recruiting processes, bad hires, attrition, and shortfall to your hiring goals.


HRX is an event series that brings together HR Leaders at high growth innovation companies to network and share best practices. Our panelists have extensive experience scaling high growth startups. Our discussion will focus on the fundamentals of setting up a talent acquisition function at a startup. The audience will be a mixture of HR professionals, startup founders and business operations leaders.
