Dawn Nitsche


Why is this role needed, what need of the organization does it address, or how is it relevant within the organization?

When culture heavily relies on having the right people—those who fit our values and have the right mindset to work in an organization without bosses and with self-organizing teams—we consistently conclude that this works better when: a) we proactively find the right people, and b) when they learn about us, they can directly talk with us VSHNeers, not an external agency.

This is why we think we not only need to handle the job advertising and application process ourselves, but also govern how we do it, how we involve the teams and VSHNeers.
