Posted by Andreia dos Reis on Jan 24, 2019 11:42:31 AM
Working in a manager's free environment can bring a lot of benefits but also comes with challenges and responsibilities. With no hierarchical reporting lines, all of the tasks that would fall on a manager now fall on top of everyone within the company. Feedback, performance reviews, among many others. At Nmbrs, recruitment is probably one of the most important ones.

Staying true to our values – I believe remote working will not create magic!

Posted by Michiel Chevalier on Oct 24, 2018 3:19:39 PM
Remote working, teleworking, telecommuting. Call it what you want; it has become somewhat of a buzzword nowadays, with companies of all types and sizes using it and singing its praises for the flexibility and freedom it offers employers and employees alike. Acknowledging that his views on it are probably opposite to the average millennial, Nmbrs CEO Michiel Chevalier explains why he has a much different take on remote working. For him it could be a restriction on employees’ freedom, and one that neutralises a key value that make Nmbrs what it is today.

Recruitment process: Why we’re making it a ride to enjoy

We recently celebrated the recruitment of our 100th employee. So we think that now’s the time to take a good look at our recruitment process and get to understand the journey that candidates make, from that very first moment that they became interested in Nmbrs.

Nobody doubts that the hiring process is an essential part of maintaining an organisation’s value and fuelling its sustainable growth. An amazing hire will have an extraordinary impact on the organisation, while a bad one can have negative repercussions for many of its variables. But what we must also remember is that it’s not easy for candidates either. In selecting a new employer they too will be taking a substantial risk and we fully appreciate their position. So, to minimise possible disappointment, it’s vital that both sides share the same mindset.

Let’s look a little closer at why we care so much about the recruitment process.
