Here are some of the highlights of the upcoming discussion:
Spotify’s Katarina Berg joined as their Chief Human Resources Officer in 2013. She heads up the company’s global HR and Strategy Operations, leading the people strategy development and execution in the transition from startup to a mature international company. She has focused on cherishing the “the Spotify way” of doing things – even during the exponential global growth. How to fight the chaos without increasing bureaucracy and middle management? One of Spotify’s core values is “hiring for culture, training for skills”. How does that work in practice? Hear it from Katarina herself at Slush this year.
As well as catering to the people needs of a diverse, nimble and ever-changing organization, Katarina is also focused on building teams and reinventing processes to establish an environment where creative and passionate people can be their very best, have fun and develop great careers.
Reddit is “the front page of the Internet” – but how does one grow a cultish website into a high-performing company? Katelin Holloway has been VP of People and Culture at Reddit for three years now. She is responsible of Reddit’s scalable, inclusive institutional culture. Prior to Reddit, Katelin was with Pixar Animation Studios before taking a leap from film industry to tech. A common denominator of all her career stopovers has been her passion for creating a culture of real belonging.
Anna Binder, the very first head of People Operations at Asana, the fast-growing work management app for teams of all sorts, will be joining Katarina and Katelin on stage at Slush. Anna has spent most of her career in human resources at technology start-ups such as MuleSoft, connecting organizations’ people programs to their business objectives and values. (We’re also thrilled to welcome Asana’s Co-Founder, Justin Rosenstein, on stage! Read his recent interview here).
Dominique Jacquesson is working with Europe-based founders and senior executives across Index’s portfolio on talent-related issues. Prior to joining Index in 2012, Dominic served twice as a COO, in both New York and London. He has first-hand experience of scaling companies between zero and 400 people, and the challenges of building executive teams, managing multi-site and international operations, and steering company culture through periods of growth, crisis, M&A, and public listings. Dominique will lead the discussion on stage.
