Scaling Processes: HR Tools to Scale Startup People & Culture Output

October 18, 2023

We held our second seachange circle with Ali (Talent Acquisition Manager, Bobobox) and Andrei (Head of People, Storehub) to discuss how HR tools can help startups grow their people and culture

How might we do more with less? How do we scale our teams outputs?

This week, we discussed the importance of collaborations through tools to build a high-performing culture with Ali (Talent Acquisition Manager, Bobobox) and Andrei (Head of People, Storehub).

Here are three applicable main highlights from the conversation:

  1. The effectiveness of HR tools is not solely defined by the tools themselves, but rather by the profound influence they can exert on the organizational culture and its people. While the choice of HR tools is important, it's the transformative impact they have on HR practices and employee experiences that truly matters.
  2. Beyond the selection of HR tools, we need to be mindful of the limitations of the insights these tools can provide. It's not just about relying on tool-generated data; it's about the readiness and create our own customized dashboards. By doing so, we empower ourselves to extract more value from the data, gaining a deeper understanding of our workforce and making more informed decisions.
  3. Building a functional HR process or system is, in many cases, a straightforward task, often accomplished with the right tools and technology. However, the challenge lies in developing an effective communication plan that ensures widespread adoption and use of the new system, coupled with various cultural and professional backgrounds of stakeholders. Bridging these gaps, fostering understanding, and ensuring seamless integration of the system requires a nuanced approach that goes beyond the technical implementation.
