Launch week was really intense time all roundThere were an awful lot of late nights in the run up to our invitation-only release, and so we wanted to celebrate with a party for all the people who’ve helped us to get this far. 

We had over 150 people join us for a fun evening at our Shoreditch home, and loved every minute. There were drinks, a DJ, the premier of our (very short) films of wisdom from our own HR sage ‘Bob’. He was previously chief staff engagement fluffer at Facebook, you know…

Our highlights from launch day:

1. Getting a lot of love for our beautiful website released on the same day (thank you hibob design team!)

2.Incredible PR, with over 80 pieces of coverage, including Techcrunch, the Telegraph, and the Wall Street Journal, and some great mentions on social media too. Our amazing PR team at Albion Drive are responsible for that.

3. Releasing ‘Bob’, global HR genius, into the world. You’ll have to see for yourself why we love him so much.

4. Letting our hair down with a group of amazing people. Here’s a condensed view of the night. Feel free to share these pics if you can spot yourself (or even if you can’t).

Thank you

Thanks for being part of our journey so far. hibob is now 40 people in two countries, but our network of support is much, much wider than that, and we wouldn’t be here without all the different people who have helped us. From family and friends, to our design partners and early customers, to our investors and advisers, everyone has been just brilliant. 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
