Create a company presentation

A good start to planning your recruitment is to make a company presentation. The presentation collects everything from your business idea to how you want the company to develop, which roles it needs and what is important along the way. It provides a quick overview of future needs and forms a foundation for needs analysis and requirements specification before a recruitment.
