People love to talk about themselves, and companies are no different. Explore the job pages at any tech employer and you’ll agree. Each job listing will contain boilerplate text about their fun-loving culture, describe their engaged and productive employees who enjoy solving big problems, and outline their generous benefits packages. But what about the job descriptions themselves?

It’s hard to overstate the inherent risks and cost associated with hiring, especially for early-stage companies. One wrong hire on a very small foundational team can delay product launches, sales execution or throw off the chemistry of a once well-oiled machine. So when you’re faced with a candidate who checks all the boxes on paper and demonstrates a mastery of the in-person interview, how can you be sure you’ve found the right person for the job?

This is a guest post from Maya Humes and the Lever team, who recently released their Diversity and Inclusion Handbook. Attracting, recruiting, and retaining diverse candidates isn’t rocket science, nor is it a walk in the park.

Rapid scaling at a startup is notoriously challenging. It’s expensive, time consuming, and presents a range of operational challenges. But Yotpo’s company wide bingo-themed Recruitathon saved the company $70,000, and brought in over 500 referrals, plus 16 new hires in the Tel Aviv office In 2016, the Yotpo New York City office grew from 30 to 90 employees.
