Culture recruits 👏 Issue #61
By Ross Chapman • Issue #61 • View online
Many companies local to ours are hiring, but getting mixed success. Experienced designers and developers are in short supply. There’s a handful of juniors, but many situations need a more experienced professional to fulfil key roles and “self-starters”.
I believe a strong company culture is at the heart of attracting and retaining good people, no matter what the size. I also believe we need a consistent model of training within teams. There’s also the subject of location. If employers can’t find the skills locally, then why not look into remote workers (like komoot are doing!)? Break down the barriers of hiring good people and focus on cultivating a creative company culture.
Thanks for reading!
