Hibob Reflections and Resolutions

A message from hibob's CEO, Ronni Zehavi “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” With thanks to Peter Drucker. As we prepare to close the chapter on 2018, it’s time to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re heading. It has been three years since we launched hiBob.

This week’s featured perk is one of our own. At bob as we get together for fish & chips as a team each Friday lunch time. bob CMO, Andy Bellass, decided to instigate Fisherman’s Fridays when the team in the London office reached a whole three people. We’re now eleven people in the office and continue this tradition.

What happened when we asked everyone to #sayhibob

Launch week was really intense time all round. There 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…

Launching bob to the world

So today we launch and of course I find myself doing last minute tweaks to our new shiny new website before it goes live, and I hate what I’ve written in our About Us section.

We are 40 people who love technology, love building technology and, most of all, love building technology to change things for the better. We saw…

The final, complete set of features is only designed and developed after considering feedback from the product's initial users". Reasons to love the MPV So why do I love it? Firstly, everything about an…

Up (blog) Periscope!

Today we lift our head above water... To be honest I was quite enjoying ‘stealth mode’. It forgives lots of sins, and ‘flies under the radar’, you could say - but no, now is the time to lift our head above the water and begin to tell our story. ...or rather to tease our story in our shiny new blog.  How it began Last summer four of us got together with a simple vision to use technology to sort all the huge pains and inefficiencies that exist around the management…
