Making your first hire is one of those truly key milestones in the journey of growing your business. We know from conversations within the AC just how monumental this step is for every founder. The stakes are higher, the responsibility is greater. The structure, culture and core of your enterprise is profoundly affected by the person you bring in.
On top of the administrative work that comes with bringing someone into the business, there’s also an emotional step that you need to take, especially if you are a solo founder, but significant nevertheless as a founding team.
Take part in this interactive session organised in partnership with the team at Mailchimp & Co, we explore the rationale and thinking founders need to make before committing to a hire as well as take a deep dive into the immediate challenges faced by an agency taking on their first team member from the moment the offer is accepted.
