TableCrowd dinner on making your company a ‘Talent Magnet’

Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet others with talent on their mind. Recruiting talent is one of the biggest pain points for businesses, particularly new businesses.

Like any business, startups need to attract the best talent they can afford, in each and every discipline in order to make waves in their marketplace. This is particularly important when scaling up. Brands like Apple, Google, AirBNB and Burberry are of course talent magnets, and that’s all very good if you’re a multinational who’s invested in building a reputation around nurturing employees and looking after their future. But how do you go about becoming a talent magnet when you’re a startup that’s not a household name?
