Be Better: Hiring and Scaling in the New Normal

Structurely — an AI-powered conversational platform for businesses — produces a podcast ideal for business owners. In this fourth session of its Tech Fest series, host Nate Joens speaks with Denim Socia’s president & chief product officer (CFO) Gregory Bailey about scaling businesses in the new normal. 

There has been a shift in the workforce’s location flexibility demand since the pandemic began. Nowadays, employees prefer working in different settings —  like in the office, a co-working space, a coffee shop, or home. 

 

In this podcast, you will learn:

  • Scaling techniques in the new normal
  • How to define your company’s hiring value proposition
  • The role of communications in a remote setting

 

Good Question & Answer 1:

Nate: How can you involve an entire remote team to get a new hire up to speed?

Gregory: It’s essential to create a company-wide calendar that includes a brief bio about new hires and their responsibilities in the company. 

The bio should cover some history about new hires and their personal and professional experiences. Afterward, it’s best to involve everyone in a Slack meet and greet to make formal introductions. 

 

Good Question & Answer 2:

Nate: How important is communication in scaling a company remotely?

Gregory: It’s more crucial than ever right now that we communicate whatever mechanism we use in hiring. Doing so guarantees that the new hire won’t sit at home wondering what to do next. For a remote setting to work, we should provide new hires with all the tools they need to perform at their best. 

When you start to scale, communication should be part of your culture. It matters more than you think. A culture of open communication is the key to retaining individuals working from various settings. 

 

Additional Topics Discussed:

  • The importance of creating a calendar for new hires 
  • The value of building a company culture in a flexible work environment
  • How to create a winning team
