Talent Membership 2017 2018 

Finding the right team as you grow, and keeping the team you have, is an incredible challenge & we're here to help. 

Over the past five years, we have experimented with lots of different ways to inspire our brightest recent grads to find their place with startups and scaling companies in Edmonton. After working with hundreds of students and dozens of companies, we're formalizing the Talent Membership for the 2017/2018 school year.

More than a connection to students, the Talent Membership gives you access to all of the activations we produce to help you recruit and retain our city's brightest to your teams, from junior developers to mid-career marketing leads. 

One thing we've heard loud and clear over the past year is that new hires want to find their place in the startup community, and it's often not as easy as we think. The addition of a Team Commons Membership to your benefits package is a great way to start offering the day-to-day interactions with the larger startup community, that can get lost in the shuffle of your day to day work. 

Let us do some heavy lifting so you don't have to go it alone! 

Consider us a great parter to your People and HR Teams for less than $65/month.
