Mia Norrman, Education First

EF has over 40,000 staff, operates in over 50 countries and has virtually no centralized recruitment. Mia Norrman and Laura Bronner talk about how EF, despite this, manages to maintain a very strong corporate culture and engages over 8000 hiring managers across the globe.

Session highlights:
Management at every level needs to be dedicated to finding people better than themselves. And putting in the time.
Core values and personality trump CV.
The importance of intuitive tools that work globally.
Don’t try to have the cake and eat it (we promise to elaborate on this cliché!).
