Extreme Interviewing—Scale your Team, Preserve your Culture, Feel the Joy: Gregory Haskins, Benjamin Root

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A quick way to wreck your organizational culture is to hire someone with a great resume and no kindergarten skills. How can teams grow without sacrificing their communication, trust, and values? Menlo Innovations uses a peer-driven hiring process called Extreme Interviewing to help our team answer the question "Does this candidate belong on our team?" In this workshop, we will show you how we interview dozens of candidates in a single evening by observing them as they work together instead of asking them questions. And you will see why candidates brought on as a result are a better fit for the culture of our team, which is a joyful thing indeed.
