Zenefits founder Parker Conrad takes another crack at HR onboarding

“We’re just investing a lot more in infrastructure up front, both on the engineering side and on others,” Conrad said. “It’s understanding the sort of complexities of growing a business and what’s around the corner as you grow and the challenges that emerge. I have a much bigger appreciation for getting infrastructure in place, the scaffolding on the tech side but also the company itself, in place early. We’ve been ahead of what’s around the corner, so that things are set up correctly.”

It should be pretty interesting to see how Conrad navigates the challenges that cost him so dearly at Zenefits.

The media-darling pressure is gone, but only time will tell if this appreciation for infrastructure and the complexities of growth will focus on sustainable practices and cultural maturity at Rippling.
