Founder Friday #4 – Hiring the right people

By Ben

It’s Founder Friday once again and this time our Tech for Good founders are talking about why it’s so important to hire right, as well as the processes they use to bring on new people.

Katharine Hibbert from Dot Dot Dot talks about how they’ve scrapped first round interviews altogether and replaced them with an evening workshop.

Ed Rogers from Bristol Braille Technology says their social cause is a really important draw for potential hires, given that they can’t always compete with other organisations on monetary terms.

Ivo Gormley from GoodGym talks about the pros and cons in finding talent through an open rigorous process versus leveraging your personal networks.
