Showpad: building a culture of feedback, focus and impact in a fast growth environment

Peter Geiregat, Showpad's first VP People, will bring you the people story of Showpad. Named in 2017 as one of the ten fastest growing private software companies in Europe, Showpad doubled its number of employees both in 2015 and 2016. This included strong growth both in the Ghent HQ and in the San Francisco office.

How do you create the right structure to achieve your growth? How do you build the right focus for every employee with so much change? How do you manage a global company from a people perspective with such different talent markets as Silicon Valley and Gent? A story about typical HR start-up/ scale up pains, great opportunities and about where more mature organisations can learn from scale-up's and vice versa.
