Being immersed everyday in the B2B SaaS ecosystem allows us to understand the specific needs and challenges faced by startups. Most fast-growing startups address the same challenges when it comes to hiring. When about to scale, startups need to massively open positions and hire the best talents while keeping their culture. Handling efficiently this growing volume of talents is challenging, especially for the founders and the historical team.
The last 12 months have been exhausting for every company in this industry and beyond, which is why we’ve chosen to kick-off our B2B Rocks #DigitalSeries by putting people first. We have gathered a panel of inspiring speakers from successful companies to share their views and experiences on the “Talent Scaling Dilemma”: Jonas Rieke (Chief Operating Officer @Personio), Christophe Henner (Chief Operating Officer @Hyperlex) and Noëlla Gavier (Chief People Officer @WTTJ) have taken the stage and you’ll find here the key takeaways of this exciting conversation.

Christophe Henner, COO @ Hyperlex actually found out that we could sketch some steps where talent scaling will face specific challenges.
