How Danish-fintech Pleo grew from 80 – 200 employees in 2019.

Pleo grew from 80 to 200 employees in 2019 and they are planning to hire 150 more people this year. Join us as we learn from Jessie Scheepers, Head of People at Pleo, how the team managed to preserve the culture during the time of hyper-growth while focusing on the type of people that they hired.

She’ll also discuss how learning from the hyper-growth environment can give just as many learnings to smaller companies as it does for larger organisations.

We’ll also hear what she wishes they’ve done differently in hindsight, how you can replicate what worked for Pleo, and how are they preparing for the next influx of new employees.
