Ronni Zehavi

Don't forget that the "DNA" for a successful team is established EARLY. It consists of communication patterns, relationships, and processes. When you ignore these, it can lead to team fragility, disengagement, and a toxic work environment.

So don't focus on results so much that you forget to address this critical step.

I hosted CEO and Co-Founder, Ronni Zehavi at HiBob, and we dove in deep on what it takes to give your team the ultimate head start.

Hibob is a cloud-based People Management platform for fast-growing businesses that cover the entire employee lifecycle, from onboarding to offboarding.

Hibob's unique employee engagement platform enhances company culture, reduces churn, and provides invaluable insights about your company while reducing the administrative burden of HR.

Ronni has over 25 years of experience in multinational, hi-tech companies. Prior to setting up Hibob, he was an Entrepreneur in Residence at the Silicon Valley-based Bessemer Venture Partners.

He's also the strategic advisor and co-founder of Team8 Cyber Security, a powerhouse developing disruptive tech in the cyber security space.
