On Board #03: Building a People Team from the Ground Up

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.
