How do you empower your team to be more creative?

In operations, creativity is about finding a better way to complete a task or solve a problem. It is very focused on the process and pushing the team to consider different ways to get to the end goal. It is my responsibility to set very clear goals and give the team the latitude to figure out how to achieve these goals.

What does career growth look like on your team?

We have a recruiter/sourcer model at Side. Two of our Sourcers were promoted in the last year from Recruiter Coordinator positions. I love this! I really like growing talent within when possible, and investing in training and development. To do this well, I think it is important to give stretch opportunities so someone can grow their capabilities.
