Culture creation panel.001

On this week’s episode of the SaaS Revolution Show, fresh off the SaaStock LatAm stage, we bring you one of the favorite panels of the day – best practices in hiring for culture creation.

Maira Gracini, LatAm Marketing Director at Zendesk moderates the panel, which hosts Valeria Porto, HR Director at PayPal, Gabriela Viana, LatAm Marketing Director for Adobe and Raju Vegesna, Chief Evangelist at Zoho. They share how their respective organizations are rethinking their recruitment process: opening up candidate pools to cater to diverse groups, from ethnicity through gender, and all the way to ability and neurodiversity. What they share, clearly proves how hiring with diversity in mind, shortens recruitment cycles and creates tangible benefits to both company culture and the bottom line.

Among other powerful nuggets, you will learn how and why Zoho abandoned the requirement for college degrees, why referral programs are the best way to recruit according to PayPal, why Adobe was the first company in Silicon Valley to reject bell curves assessment and many more

After a highly successful and sold out SaaStock in LatAm our journey across the world continues. Next up on our itinerary, we have SaaStock Asia on May 14-15 in Hong Kong and SaaStock East Coast on June 4-5 in New York, where we are bringing equally useful, practical and provocative ideas for SaaS founders, executives and investors.
