CEO’S Guide to your Startup Journey

The product of a startup is only as good as its execution, which in turn boils down to the team that has undertaken the task. A startup, especially the ones that have recently began operations, is completely dependent on its employees to ensure that they offer superior customer experience and help the company scale. In this episode of “CEO’S Guide to your Startup Journey”, Vikas Bhonsle, CEO, Crayon Software Experts speaks about talent management. 


Vikas guides startups through what their approach should be when hiring talent, and how companies can ensure that their employees continue to tread with them during their scale-up phase. Some of the important views that Vikas discussed are: how startups must focus on building the core team that believes in the vision of the company, and also help create wealth generating opportunities for them. 

Some of the other imperative factors that startups must weigh-in on, according to Vikas, are as follows:

  • Startups must be open and honest in their communication.
  • Hire employees that have a good attitude and emotional maturity.
  • Compensation is important. So, if startups can’t be the best, they should ensure that they are not the worst when compared to market insights.
  • Ensure that employees associate with the culture of the company.
  • If startups expect employees to be flexible, and work on weekends, they need to be flexible too.
