Smart Staffing for Your Startup

How leveraging the power of Freelancers can transform your business.

About this Event

Attention Entrepreneurs and Founders: you’re losing precious time and money making the wrong hires. Candidate screening is stressful, training new team members is time-consuming, and staff turnover costly. If your startup or SMB lacks the budget for permanent full-time staff; if you seek to temporarily expand your team in order to complete a project—consider freelancers. Three Gebeya Inc. executives will explain how to identify when your organization is ready for freelance talent, and how to integrate them with permanent staff.

If you need to make a hire, but don’t know where to find the right fit, with the right skills and mindset, at the right price, we have great news: You don’t have to do it alone. We’ll share five signs that your organization is ready for freelancers, and the cost savings you can realize. We’ll share secrets of meaningful success metrics to measure productivity and results, to help you stay on track toward achieving your goals. If you care more about the outcome than outputs, if you prioritize progress over perfect, tune in for a visionary discussion from an entrepreneurial team of Pan-African professionals.
