How To Scale Teams While Maintaining Culture

Practical strategies on scaling your team so that when things take off, you’re ready.

Scaling teams is not a one size fit’s all process. Before you can succeed at scaling up a team, identifying the reason you need additional people and how they would be an asset is key.


Building a strong organisational culture that is supportive and dynamic will help recruiters entice elite candidates and retain top talent. Additionally, a winning company culture has been shown to improve levels of employee engagement, productivity and performance.


But how do you do one without losing the other?


In this event we will discuss:

  • The importance of strong company culture
  • How to maintain this culture in the world of hybrid work
  • Building successful teams
  • How to scale while sustaining culture and productivity
  • Hiring too fast versus not hiring enough
  • Strategies for growing & hiring sustainably
