Impact Hub Zurich becomes a partner of Lionstep
The Impact Hub Zurich, the leading tech and startup community in Switzerland, and the Swiss recruiting company Lionstep, an international service provider for the active search for talents, have formed a partnership. The partnership aims to help members of the Impact Hub Zurich grow and find new employees.
Zurich, July 17, 2018 – The Impact Hub Zurich is an entrepreneur community with over 950 innovators, startups and large companies, who come together to shape a collaborative and cooperative future. In Zurich, the Impact Hub currently operates 4 locations. The Swiss recruiting company Lionstep helps companies to identify, search and address new employees in a unique combination of artificial intelligence and human interaction. Lionstep draws on a pool of millions of people and drastically reduces the search time and costs of companies. The Swiss company has quickly gained a foothold in the Swiss, German and Spanish markets with its range of products and, in addition to SMEs and international companies, also local start-ups such as Crowdhouse or TestingTime as customers.
The partnership plans joint activities for local startups in Zurich. In addition to simplified access to the recruiting market through the use of the Lionstep services and the platform, this includes additional 1: 1 mentoring sessions and events on recruiting and team development.
Johanna Seeliger, responsible for network partnerships at the Impact Hub Zurich: “The particular challenge for start-ups is finding employees with specialist know-how who, in addition, are able to cope with growing and constantly changing structures and actively help to shape them. For such specific profiles, the active sourcing of talents works particularly well, and with Lionstep active sourcing is cheaper and more effective. “
Lionstep CEO Claudia Winkler adds: “Having the right employees is important for every company, and for startups, it is even vital for survival. We know from our own experience how difficult and time-consuming it is to find the right people. Our proximity to the Swiss universities and tech hubs enables us to have a lively exchange between motivated talents and young companies. That’s why we’re delighted that we can support together with the Impact Hub Swiss startups even more closely.”
