Hiring in the “New Normal”

What is the #1 challenge that keeps engineering leaders up at night right now? Hiring.

Over the past few months, we have chatted with over 100 ELC members about the challenges they’re facing. The most pressing challenge we heard is hiring and growing their team. Why is this such a pressing challenge? The landscape of hiring has completely changed this past year. We face new hurdles and variables that surfaced with the transition to a remote (and soon hybrid) work cultures:

  • How do I source quality candidates now that location is no longer a constraint?
  • How to factor in local cultural norms during interviews?
  • How to compensate fairly and competitively in new markets?
  • How do I compete with companies with deep pockets and should I even try?
  • How do I design a process that scales as we grow?

To better equip engineering leaders to navigate these new challenges, we’re hosting a one-day “mini-summit” to bring together leaders and experts across the industry to share insights on both the macro and micro, facilitate 1:1 conversations, and engage in deep small group discussions. We want participants to walk away with new insights, tips, and guidance on how to tackle this pressing and timely challenge.

Who Should Attend?This mini-summit is designed for anyone involved in the hiring process at your company. We have identified key take-aways for a few types of leaders involved in hiring:

Executive Leaders can expect to gain understanding into current trends in hiring, compensation trends and strategies, and how to design and implement processes that are both scalable and prioritize diversity and inclusion.

Team leaders and directors will get insights into where to source candidates, how to set hiring bars for your teams that can span across new markets, and how to prepare your interviewers.

Team members and interviewers will learn how to improve the interview itself to get better hiring signal and how to engineer processes that ensure engineering time in the hiring process is well spent.

Stay tuned to hear about more speakers and the event agenda!
