Building a People Team from the Ground Up with Daniel Illes, VP of People at Vinted
In this episode, Beau Brooks speaks with Daniel Illes, VP of People at Vinted, about when scaling organizations need to start building a People Team, how to create it, and how to ensure its success. Key Action Points: You need to understand the business you're working for so that you can better help the organization set strategy and vision for HR. While building your People team, avoid looking for "unicorns" who are experts in all things. You want to hire the right people but don't let perfect be the enemy of good. Take care of your workplace and recruitment first because they are in many ways the cornerstones or benchmarks of the organization. With about 30 employees, a company needs to start thinking of its People Organization as an independent function.

(Un)learning in HR with Laura Mazzullo
In this episode, Beau and Laura dig deep into the changing recruitment landscape. How are candidates, hiring managers, and recruiters reimagining what it means to find a "good fit?" Key Action Points: - Create workflows to ask better questions of candidates. We're seeing an important shift from "Why should we hire you?" to "In what ways is this organization a good fit for this candidate?" - Redefine what "fit" means to an organization. Specify what's important to your organization and get alignment across your team. - Train team members continuously. Build a safe space where HR leaders can acknowledge any weaknesses and grow. - Be bold. Go to leadership in the organization to enact the changes you know are necessary. - Don't judge your previous practices. Acknowledge what practices are no longer serving you but don't waste mental energy punishing yourself. We're all growing together.
