Highlights

In today’s episode of Category Visionaries, we speak with Daniel Birkholm, CEO of TalentHub, an HR tech platform that’s raised over $6 Million in funding, about why a candidate-centric hiring process means companies across the board need a new approach to dealing with job applications, and why TalentHub’s software package is just the solution they need. By monitoring, measuring and mapping extant hiring practices, TalentHub assists their customers to optimize their entire system, with everything from issue identification to proactive learning tools which streamline onboarding to make sure your business doesn’t miss a beat.

We also speak about the current state of the startup sector in Denmark, how Daniel launched his first business at just 18, what led him to see the fundamental flaw in the way companies currently hire candidates, and how data-driven insights can provide the foundation for future innovation, changing your business from the bottom up.

Topics Discussed:

  • Denmark’s tech startup sector, and how a recent slew of successful enterprises inspires ‘basement-dwellers’ everywhere
  • Daniel’s first business being launched when he was only 18 years old, and how it’s doing now, 15 years later
  • The fundamental flaw in contemporary recruitment, and why most teams are more in the business of ‘rejecting’ new employees
  • How data-driven insights can help optimize current hiring practices, and even inspire innovation towards entirely new systems
  • Why Daniel believes that hiring is becoming more candidate-centric, and what that means for modern businesses
  • How a global customer base has helped TalentHub get a foothold in the US, even as they focus most of their business in Europe
