Managing talent in any business is a challenge, even more so when you have the added pressure of a private equity backer and a structured 3-5 year growth plan to exit. 

We spoke to Glenn Elliott, Founder and CEO of Reward Gateway, the successful employee engagement company that was recently sold by Inflexion to Great Hill Partners in a £140m deal. Glenn talked to us about the importance of managing talent correctly and how this differs in a private equity backed business. Watch this short video and find out what he told us:


Glenn’s three tips for CEOs to improve their talent management:

1. Hire the best possible candidate that is fit for purpose today

2. Constantly assess your team and create new board roles quickly

3. As the business grows it will outgrow the team, perhaps even you and that’s a good thing
