How To Get Hiring Right

“We don’t just recruit for mission alignment, but for mission obsession. You can spot a mission obsessed person from a mile away – they almost can’t contain it within them.” 

In this week’s bite-sized 40 Minute Mentor episode, we talk about all things hiring – the importance of getting hiring right and how hiring for values can help with that. 

In almost every conversation we have with Founders, hiring is referenced as a real pain point and something that’s difficult to get right but can be detrimental for a Startup when you get it wrong. 

Throughout today’s episode we’ll hear the best hiring advice from some of our previous 40 Minute Mentors, including: 

➡️ Wing Chan, Co-Founder & CEO of Sourceful

➡️ Tessa Clarke, Co-Founder & CEO of OLIO 

➡️ Margot de Broglie, Co-Founder of Your Juno

➡️ Rachael Twumasi-Corson, the Founder & CEO of Afrocenchix 

➡️ Dan Garrett, Co-Founder & CEO of Farewill
