Smarter scaling: Engineer-centric hiring and onboarding
What you'll learn, and how you can apply it
In addition to learning key frameworks for behavioral interviewing and employee-driven onboarding, learners will leave having experienced those frameworks "live" in activities. Finally, learners will build their own Scaling Support Kit to take back to work and apply in hiring and onboarding situations.
