How Startups Recruit and Retain Top Talent

While big names and industry giants cloud over the tech world, startups have found their own way to attract top talent.

Startups typically can’t provide the extravagant benefits package and generous salary offers, so how do they stay in the race for recruiting, hiring, and retaining top engineers and developers in their field? Most startups know these strategies can noticeably improve their recruitment efforts.

The need for software developers is only expected to grow as more and more companies adopt more technical avenues for doing business. The internet has opened the door for smaller businesses to make names for themselves, but it’s also created a dire need for web and app developers that only continues to grow. Startups, now more than ever, have to put their best foot forward if they want to attract and retain the best and brightest, likely leaning toward the bigger names in tech like Apple, Google, or Facebook.

8 Ways AI is Changing HR March 26, 2019

8 Ways AI is Changing HR

Organizational leaders and human resources executives are confident that incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) into HR functions such as onboarding and administration of benefits can improve the employee experience.

As stated by IBM’s 2017 survey of 6,000 executives, “Extending expertise: How cognitive computing is transforming HR, and the employee experience,” 66%of CEOs feel that cognitive computing can significantly increase the value in HR.

Half of HR executives support that claim, saying they acknowledge that cognitive computing can revolutionize key components of HR. Additionally, 54% of HR executives hold the opinion that cognitive computing will affect crucial roles in the HR organization.

However, it’s not all positive. The Human Resources Professional Association (HRPA) reported in a 2017 survey that 52% of respondents indicated their businesses were not likely to incorporate AI into their HR departments within the next five years. Approximately 36 % feel that their organization was not big enough to do so, and 28% said their senior leadership failed to see the need for such technology.

The question of “to AI or not to AI” may still go unanswered for many organizations, but a few have already jumped on the bandwagon. We’ve found some examples of companies that have invested in AI and cognitive computing for their HR departments. Continue reading “8 Ways AI is Changing HR”

5 Places Startups Can Find Talent March 18, 2019

5 Places Startups Can Find Talent

A startup always starts as a solution to a problem, but that solution can’t be executed without the vital ingredient that is top talent.

The process of recruiting talent can be overwhelming, but it’s actually the most important thing you can do for the growth of your startup. When screening talent, you as the startup recruiter need to learn what experiences your candidates have that both prove their familiarity with the role, as well as their ability to perform well down the road.

Ask about their experiences when working on a demanding project. Be sure to hone on how they were able to contribute to that project. A smart way to gauge a candidate’s capabilities is by asking them to create work for you during the interview, for example, drafting a line of code to perform a certain function or even just bringing their work samples to the in-person and presenting them to you.

Whatever you do in the interviewing process to find that perfect fit you need to start with step one and find candidates.  Advertising an open position of a job site could work, but your competitors are doing the same thing. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a complete countdown list of 5 places you should be looking for your Startup Top Talent.
