In our last post, we shared how in-house executive recruiting teams are handling the COVID-19 crisis.

Some industries (e.g., gaming, communication tech) haven’t skipped a beat, as social distancing is yielding record returns. Others, like travel and hospitality, haven’t been so lucky and are struggling daily to stay afloat.

Companies like Roblox fall into the booming category, but even still, executive hiring has slowed down.

Thrive spoke with Roblox’s head of executive recruiting to learn how they’re investing in long-term strategies to build up their executive network. Watch the full interview below.

In the weeks to come, Thrive will be diving into strategies that your in-house executive recruiting team can utilize to come out of this crisis more valuable than ever.
