Read Technical.ly’s new Beyond Recruiting ebook on trends in hiring

Based on our reporting and interviews with dozens of growing tech firms in all of our markets, this is a free resource.

A founder I was interviewing once summed up the strange obsession with office perks in a way that has stuck with me in the years since. Too many tech founders confuse organizational culture outputs, with inputs.

Having beer or a foosball table in the office isn’t necessarily a bad thing. What’s bad is that company leaders too often think that installing a keg or added a game room will create a team dynamic of informality and fun and welcoming. Instead, eschewing the hard work of growing team independence means that often the sight of a foosball table at a company’s offices is a sign of something rotten: that the team culture has calcified already.

We at Technical.ly have reported for years on hiring trends across the mid-Atlantic. (It’s why we host events like NET/WORK, our tech jobs fair coming up Feb. 28). So following on a deep dive from several years ago, we gathered some of these best practices into one place.

We looked back at our story archive to publish a new ebook that shares tactical advice on how companies are finding an edge in the competitive hiring landscape.

We call it Beyond Recruiting.

It’s free, and it’s available now. It features stories from people and companies across the communities we cover, with real anecdotes and actionable takes on how they plan to find their next great hire.

For friends of the show, we released a first edition in 2015 as a .pdf. This new, updated version is in pretty HTML5, friendly to desktop and mobile.

We hope you learn something new—and if you have your own unique recruiting ideas and aren’t afraid to share, send them our way. We’d love to feature you.

Also, do note that we’re hosting our NET/WORK jobs fair across all five of our mid-Atlantic communities. We’ll be connecting more than 100 companies with thousands of jobseekers on the East Coast this month and next. It’s an effective, affordable tech recruiting event in your city. Find out how to exhibit at the event today.
