Growing Games Online: Recruitment & Team Diversity

Note: This event will be in English

How do you find and recruit the right people for your team?

Everybody agrees, that having the right team is incredebly important to reaching the goals you set for your company. But only a minority of companies start out with the perfect team. And as ambitions grow, the need for more team members increases.

But how do you find the right people for your team? How do you make people want to work at your company? And how do you find the best candidate for you, among the applications for an open position? And how do you ensure you hire to create a balanced and diverse team?

And once you’ve found your candidate, what are your legal obligations regarding contract, insurance, vacation pay and working conditions?

Join us for a special online edition of Growing Games, where we will try and answer all of the above questions through both talks and exercises.
