What you will learn:
Bar Raiser’s primary audience are CEOs and HROs of tech scaleups who need to unlock enterprise growth by hiring better and are struggling to do so. Frequently, these companies have been given funding and mandates to grow exponentially yet have struggled to scale partly because the founders can no longer touch every problem themselves and lack proper mechanisms to scale their culture and best practices. Painpoints that this Bar Raiser audience wants resolved include things like: - interviewing biases that prevent companies from making good hires; - how interviewing/hiring tends to evolve as companies grow in size and their growth hyperscales; - what are some predictively efficient ways to interview candidates; - what are specific mental mechanisms likely to quickly boost success rates when interviewing/hiring; - how small companies can compete for talent with big tech; - how working remotely impacts cultures and recruiting patterns.
In the duration of 4 days, we will train the top employees of your company to become your future Bar Raisers. We will help you stand up an internal Bar Raiser organization that will drive behavioral interview best practices that will help dramatically improve your hiring results, and by extension will help unlock your growth as your company scales to achieve key growth milestones.
*There is also a preview version of this class at 60-90 minutes.
About the instructor:
In 2013, Nick Dimitrov co-founded Amazon Game Studios (AGS) in a series of direct pitches to Amazon’s CEO at the time, Jeff Bezos. AGS has since invested more than a billion dollars in the gaming space, by acquiring the game-streaming platform Twitch, developing its own 3D game engine (O3DE), and building hit internal games (New World).
Nick also became an Amazon Bar Raiser, one of that small number of Amazonians, who decide whether the company should hire a job candidate or not. As a Bar Raiser, Nick interviewed more than 350 job applicants and determined whether they raised the company’s hiring bar.
In 2018, Nick left Amazon to start Bar Raiser, a company that helps scale-ups hit their growth milestones, such as a new product launch or an IPO, by teaching them how to hire the best-quality talent that consistently raises their bar. We help companies unlock their growth by hiring better.
Bar Raiser’s customers are rapidly growing tech companies of 400 to 4,000+ employees, who interview roughly 100+ candidates monthly, and whose organizations span across distributed global hubs. Functionally, our customers come from industries such as hospitality, gaming, telecommunications, e-learning, and cloud security.
