Business Review - Shared Preference

Stephanie Nadi Olson reimagines hiring. The twist? A transformative approach benefitting job seekers and employers alike.

DRAWING ON HER DIVERSE UPBRINGING, STEPHANIE NADI OLSON DISRUPTS TRADITIONAL HIRING NORMS WITH WE ARE ROSIE, A FLEXIBLE CAREER HIRING PLATFORM. AS THE FOUNDER, SHE SHARES INSIGHTS ON ENTREPRENUERSHIP AND HOW HER STARTUP MOVES BEYOND RESUMES.

“I saw so many different groups of people being mistreated and marginalized and frankly just kind of pushed out by the rules that we had created around work. We really go beyond the resume to evaluate the talent on our platform. Do you need to take summers off with your kids? Do you need to work part-time because you yourself are going through something personally, maybe medically or something with your family?

FOR EMPLOYEES NEEDING ENCOURAGEMENT, OLSON EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF ASKING FOR DESIRED WORKPLACE ADJUSTMENTS BEFORE CONSIDERING ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS.

“So if you need to work from home full-time or part-time, if you'd love to do a job share, if you need to take Fridays off or change the hours that you're working, just ask before you say, I got to quit my job. Because I’ve seen some employers really come to the table with some requests that the person making the request thought was a complete out of possibility. The worst-case scenario is more information about your current employer and if they can meet your needs and then you can go from there.”

OLSON ENCOURAGES ENTREPRENEURS TO FOCUS ON HIRING FOR WEAKNESSES AND BEING HONEST ABOUT THEIR OWN STRENGTHS AND LIMITATIONS.

“I was really mindful about surrounding myself with people who had done things and had skills that I didn't have and that just allowed me to live in my zone of genius as much as possible.”

THE BUSINESS REVIEW IS A PRODUCTION OF LIVINGSTON MCKAY AND THE HANKAMER SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AT BAYLOR UNIVERSITY.
