The recruitment playbook is a great guide for people-first start-ups and scale-ups. I think it's particularly useful for inexperienced hiring managers or first-time in-house talent partners. It's a great shortcut to get the right foundation in place, and I like that it's customisable. We’ve personalised some of the content and we’re also using it to create briefing documents to take with us to new role briefings with hiring managers. Thanks Pioneers!
