Start Up Learning Series: Power Up Your Recruitment!

There are many challenges that startups and scale ups face when it comes to recruitment with lack of time, insufficient resources, and limited employer branding being the more notables ones. However, with a strong recruitment strategy that establishes your why, encompasses workforce planning and determines your competitiveness in the market, you will be able to place the right people in the right seats.

Join Tricia Gilliss, HR Business Partner with BLANKSLATE Partners, as she explores hiring in the tech industry's candidate driven market. She will discuss the impact your values can have on your employer brand, the importance of a positive candidate experience, the power of workforce planning and what a great interview process should look like.

Whether you're a first time CEO, mid level manager or a seasoned recruitment professional entering the startup world for the first time, you will learn the steps to powering up your recruitment.

Tricia Gilliss

Leadership Development, Culture and Talent Management

When you meet Tricia you can’t help but notice her genuine desire to share, support and create alignment and partnership with everyone she meets. When Tricia moved from Saskatchewan to Vancouver, BC in 2011 maintaining a true love for making her clients lives better and easier through her work.

Transitioning from strategic business consulting on the prairies to high-volume recruitment, leadership and management - her primary goal remained the same: to leave each person the same or better than before she met them with each interaction.
