Startups: When do you need a Head of People? The Secret: You don't.

Presented by

Katherine Merrill, PHR, Strategic People Consultant & Managing Partner, Merrill HR

About this talk

Founders and CEOs of startups in their first few years of existence regularly struggle with the questions: When in my company's lifecycle should I hire a Head of People? When is too soon? When is it too late? Or do I not need one at all? In this talk, I'll share my hypothesis for how startups definitely need a People advisory lens from it's company's infancy; but would benefit from thinking about a Head of People function in a vastly different manner and set up, which would: i) Be more cost effective for the company ii) Enable the talented leaders to fill this function to work in a more prioritized, empowering, and agile manner
