HR & The Role of Technology in Recruitment

To borrow a line from the "Jungle Book" - The strength of a pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the pack! The same is applicable for a startup. The skill set of the team members will help determine the success of the startup. However, recruitment and retention are two key problems that most startups face. 

#SSMUM May will focus on the role recruitment startups and technology play in the hiring and retention of employees for startups. Our speakers will share tips on how the referreral system helps in finding the right candidates as well as insights on designing and implementing organisational structures, salary structures and compensation benchmarks amongst others. We will also have product demos from early stage startups.
