Who are you?
‘Lightyear was founded in 2017 by 5 passionate young entrepreneurs with a mission: clean mobility for everyone, everywhere. By developing the most sustainable and energy-efficient solar vehicles.
The first car, Lightyear One, is the first commercial long-distance solar car in the world, with a range of 725 km (WLTP), on just one battery charge. Additionally, Lightyear One can charge an extra 40-60 km a day from the sun.
Lightyear One is an electric five-seater (2+3), 4-door crossover coupé, and the first models will be delivered at the end of 2021.’
What was your challenge with respect to onboarding?
At the end of 2018, the team started to grow extremely fast. We had 40 employees and we were about to double our numbers very soon. To facilitate this growth, the CPPO (Chief People and Processes Officer) and I started looking for the best possible onboarding process for our future A players. Which is how we found Appical.’
