About this talk

Human Resources is notorious for being everything startups are not: policy-ridden, procedural, and even formal. As a result, tech startups with 100 or fewer employees have half as many HR and People Ops professionals as companies of the same size in other industries (according to data from PayScale).

Still, no matter what industry you’re in or at what stage of growth, all startups and larger companies face important challenges that deserve intentionality and focus: things like creating a diverse and engaged team, evaluating performance, creating opportunities for career growth, and cultivating a culture your team is proud to identify with.

This panel is designed to support startups that don’t yet have full-time People Ops pro to manage the essential functions of this role. We’ll discuss:

  • What are the most important HR functions that your company needs to address?
  • What job functions can be outsourced and what responsibilities need to remain internal?
  • What resources exist for companies that don’t yet have an internal HR team?
  • When is it the right time to make your first People Ops hire?
  • What should you look for when hiring your first People Ops employee?
