In this week’s episode, Shahar and Romi talk with Eilon Reshef, Gong’s Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer.
Gong has undergone significant growth in the past six years, accelerating from 10 employees to around 1200 in that short time. Eilon discusses the importance of hiring responsibly, why hiring fast is never beneficial, and why it’s paramount to keep the bar high while scaling.
Strong operating principles are at the company’s core and apply to customers and employees alike. How do you create “raving fans”? Eilon has specific advice. He also talks about how to make your guiding principles stick and mean something right throughout your organization.
Gong wants employees to “enjoy the ride,” – but how easy is that to achieve without taking a hit on revenue, especially during tough economic times? Eilon keeps Gong lean and isn’t a fan of excessive “party budgets.” In the long term, it won’t be the factor that will make your employees stay (or happy). What should your company do to balance employee happiness and drive profit? Eilon has suggestions.
