Office Hours with Google on HR

Finding the right knowledge to grow your startup is hard and time intensive. To help you grow your business, we invite experts to share their knowledge with our community. Office Hours brings you the knowledge and insights to operate more effectively by learning from the best. In these 1 on 1 sessions, you’ll be able to ask for advice on any challenges you’ve been facing.

This time around, we've invited Roland Grootenboer - People Operations at Google - to assist you in laying down a strong HR foundation. Some of the topics he can help you with are:

  • Hiring (planning & process)
  • Learning and development
  • Unbiasing (diversity/inclusion)
  • Performance management (feedback)
  • Being a great manager (team management, feedback, coaching)
  • Saying goodbye (firing)


Roland is part of the People Operations team at Google, after working in HR at (and with) multiple startups in Holland.


Our curated events calendar welcomes industry veterans alongside fast-growing startups. Connect with Google, Salesforce, Amazon, and over 50 startups in residence.
