The Job to be done

Buycycle faced a growth face to roughly double the headcount from 25 to 50 people within a year and needed support for the most critical roles. So pplwise was hired for the standardization of recruitment processes while hiring 7 people within 5 months.

The Approach

One fractional Talent Partner was assigned to take on ~2 roles in parallel, working with hiring managers and the founders to define the right hiring approach to hit the growth targets, ensuring the right quality and a great experience for candidates.

The Result

Within five months, working on 2 funnels in parallel we made 7 hires across Go-to-Market, Product, and Operations roles with a time to hire of 31 days.
