They are such an important tool for building a network and kick-starting a career. And just as important as t ..read more

Spotify » Talent Acquisition
by Alexander Westerdahl
1y ago
According to HBR, 70-90% of M&A (mergers and acquisitions) fail – a pretty daunting stat for organisations working in this area. If you are an HR professional working in a fast-growing organisation it’s likely you’ll have to face the challenges associated with a merger or an acquisition somewhere along the way.  An acquisition, from due diligence to onboarding and integration is a great example of collaboration and team effort across multiple teams in HR: HR Ops, HR Partnerships, Benefits, Payroll, Employment Legal, Compensation, HRIS, Equity, and IT.

As we entered 2022, we knew that we had to reimagine our talent flows to address the increasingly competitive market. Six months in, we can say that as expected, the competitiveness of the market has been greater than we have seen in years. A lot of good companies are hiring for similar skill sets at the same time. This means everyone has to step up their game when it comes to the speed, quality and strength of their candidate experience, and the hiring process.  We prepared well in 2021 and we were ready to invest in our process to be able to hire better and faster, consider our differen ..read more

2y ago
While the media might exaggerate the topic, ‘The Great Resignation’ is a real trend that’s occurring across the world. Attrition has always existed within all companies and industries, but the current spike in attrition is driven by some unprecedented variables. The combination of the pandemic, the millennial and the Gen Z workforce mentality, and a power shift towards employees rather than employers, are influencing variables which mean people are quitting their jobs in record numbers. In particular, the turn in tide from an employer market to an employee market has made the game for talent m ..read more

When a company is scaling up its workforce at a fast rate, just as Spotify has done over the past 15 years, it means that every single employee needs to continually be in a recruiting frame of mind.

Spotify’s Talent Acquisition Compass
Spotify » Talent Acquisition
by Jon Singel
3y ago
One of the four tenets in our People Strategy is talent attraction. All four tenets are of equal importance, yet talent attraction remains top of mind, especially when you’re in a state of (prolonged) hyper-growth. When I first joined the band two years ago, one of our leaders told me to remember that as a company, we already had over 3,000 recruiters. Confused? For a split second I was too, before it quickly sunk in that the point being made was not that there is a team of people with a recruiter as their job title, but that attracting talent is a part of all of our jobs. Every single band me ..read more
