Opsy #8: Wanna meetup?

Blue background with white text says, "A holiday shindig for Opsy folks in tech"

The end of the year is upon us and I can't think of a better way to wrap things up than with your opsy selves.

Join us for the Opsy Holiday Party next week!

It's on Thursday, December 16th at 12:00pm ET. (That's 9am for you west coast folks and 5pm for you Londoners.)

As always, our meetups are a great opportunity to learn something new + grow your network. This time, with a little extra holiday cheer sprinkled in! ✨

The event is capped at 50 folks so save your spot today.


A new podcast ep dropped last week!⚡

The guest is Jennifer Kim — a font of wisdom about all things recruiting & people ops. I was so pumped to be able to pick her brain!

As the former Head of People at Lever, Jen is super knowledgeable about rapidly scaling a team while maintaining a great culture. And, as the founder of Startup Recruiting Bootcamp, she's also focused on helping us all get better at hiring.

Check out her episode, where we dig into:

  • The importance of HR/People Ops at a growing company
  • Best practices for scaling an early-stage startup without burning out
  • Why HR has such a bad reputation—and what to do about it
  • A simple strategy for supporting middle managers on your team. 💪🏻

... and so much more!

Building Remotely: Opsy member Nicole Vasquez is a guest on the latest episode of the SafetyWing podcast, where she shares all her best practices for onboarding remote team members. Definitely worth a listen!

Holiday Cheer, Pandemic Style: A no-nonsense breakdown of navigating IRL holiday parties in these unprecedented times. Some good things to keep in mind for inclusivity if you're planning an IRL meetup this year.

Hope to see at the meetup next Thursday. Until then, stay opsy!
