Tuesday January 24th we had a packed house for the first in a series of partner events with General Assembly on The Future of Talent.
Radical Approaches to Onboarding brought light to Wayfair’s Wayfair Labs program which is a part bootcamp, part coaching program to help place L1 Engineers into the right teams by assessing their skills and then filling gaps if possible before determining if or where the best fit at Wayfair is. Rosa Carson, Director of the program gave an overview and then let the audience hear from an alum of the program and an engineering manager who’s a beneficiary of getting qualified talent through it.
Matthew Doucette, Director of Global Talent Acquisition at Monster followed up the presentation by engaging the audience in a discussion of how they can implement aspects of a program like this when their company might lack the household name.
