Hirect, the chat-based direct hiring platform, has released its second insight report, which includes a detailed analysis of how companies should restructure their hiring strategy at each stage of a startup’s life cycle, from seed to IPO.
Hirect surveyed 1,500 senior and mid-level recruiters nationwide. The survey shows how digital entrepreneurs change their hiring practises at each level. The research aims to help entrepreneurs, recruiters, employers, and decision-makers adapt to today’s employee-driven economy. Building a core staff is critical for startups’ efficiency. As companies grow, they must reassess their staffing needs.
The report gives information about the interactions between recruiters and candidates:
- The crucial importance of workplace culture, remote work, and career growth
- The recruitment procedures to be used at each stage of a startup
- According to 96.5% of recruiters, using AI to improve recruiting and remove prejudice from hiring is one of the best ways to do so.
- According to 50% of recruiters, in the next few years, AI will likely become a standard component of the hiring process.
The report’s key result is as follows:
- 89% of employers think referral programmes deliver the best results and have the greatest employee retention rate.
- 92.5% of people say entrepreneurs are the best people to hire in the early stages of a startup.
- 52% of recruiters agree that it is important to have a diverse workforce to make up for the low number of women in leadership positions.

Building a startup is a roller coaster. Building a brand or employing core team members involves time, money, and effort. As firms accelerate their digital transformations, tech-related functional areas and sectors are in demand.
