Want to hear MORE about our plan to step up your Recruitment or Employer Branding career in the SaaS industry?
I was looking for a way to grow my career in employer branding & had just made a hard decision to resign from my previous job in an EB agency since the environment wasn't a fit for me. Before joining TalentBee, I knew that I wanted to continue working in an agency since you can learn so much about different industries and companies. I wanted my future team to share the same mindset in work-life-balance and aiming for growth: how to find a job where the strong growth mindset doesn't mean sacrificing your well-being? TalentBee offered the opportunity to get “the best of both worlds”. One of the most important things in choosing TalentBee was the fact that they have an exceptionally clear vision and strategy. Clarity plays a big role in creating well-being at work.
In spring 2022 I felt a bit lost with my career. I started talking with other talent acquisition professionals to ask them what the best workplace would look like. I noticed that roughly 80 % of the people I talked to, were unhappy with their working lives and considered changing careers. I thought that I had to change that! The talent Acquisition industry needs talent – we can’t lose these experts! That’s why we launched TalentBee. We’re on a mission of creating the best workplace for Talent Acquisition Professionals. This is how I got my lost inspiration back!
We have a lot to buzz about!

What does it mean to combine recruitment and employer branding?
Our solution to our SaaS customer's hiring problems is to combine recruitment and employer branding. In highly competitive talent markets one just simply can't work without the other.
In our everyday life it means that recruitment and employer branding professionals work seamlessly together as multi-professional TalentBee teams in customer collaborations.
And yes, we think these are two different roles – recruiters and employer branding experts are typically very different from each other and have different skillsets. We don't push them into the same role.
Whether you are a recruiter or an EB pro – this means that you can really do your own sting & focus on what you do best!

What kind of leadership & culture do you have?
We are aiming to be the best workplace for talent acquisition professionals and one big part of that is investing in building our culture and good leadership.
We're only just getting everything started, but to this point we have focused on building good processes, creating a value-led, growth-minded and honest culture and finding the best practices for internal communication.
Our whole culture as well as leadership will be based on giving and receiving feedback. This one is tightly related to our fuck-up culture, where it's psychologically safe to fail. We are trying a lot of new things and that's why this is really crucial for us.
We lead a clear vision for TalentBee: becoming the best workplace for TA pros & the best talent acquisition partner for SaaS companies. We aim for growth.
We are really open about this: a culture of high growth and radical transparency is definitely not for everyone.
