Which applications are relevant in HR and how can these change recruiting, employee and talent management as well as the collaboration within the company? We wrote in our last article about Big Data in connection with Artificial Intelligence in HR, this article is about chatbots in recruiting and what impact artificial intelligence has on the HR work of the future.

Chatbots in recruiting

Even in recruiting chatbots already do their job. On career pages, for example, they automatically answer questions about vacancies, career opportunities or about the company. … Continue

The most exciting digital trends in HR software include artificial (and virtual) intelligence and big data. Which applications are relevant in HR and how can these change recruiting, employee and talent management as well as the collaboration within the company? Do you even have the potential to change HR management?

Digitization trend: big data

Big Data is a key word that has been haunting the heads of HR decision makers for a long time. At the beginning Big data has to be understood as huge amounts of data collected from a wide variety of areas: the Internet, radio, social media, virtual assistive devices and, and, and. … Continue

The technology-affine generation and their demands

Demographic change. Generation X, Y and Z. And each of these generations brings new demands to the working world. But how big are the differences between the generations? And how is it possible to satisfy one generation without neglecting the other?

So different, yet similar?

First of all a brief overview: At the moment, we are talking about four different generations on the labor market. The babyboomers (approx. year of birth 1946 – 1964) are regarded as industrious and loyal workers. In contrast, for the generation X (approx. 1965 – 1980) the work takes a less important part in their life.… Continue

Employee search with the crowd.

Crowdsourcing. This word conveys nothing to you? Crowd working. No idea? Crowdfunding. That word should ring a bell! Crowdfunding platforms are becoming more and more popular on the internet, even small communities are already trying to find the new financing method.

All over again.

But all over again. At the end of the day, we are still an HR blog. And here it is more about “sourcing” and “working” rather than “funding”. But what is crowdsourcing really about and is it more than just another buzzword in the hype-driven HR word?

Crowd, Crowd, Crowd.

In fact, crowdsourcing means outsourcing tasks to a larger group, who can fulfill the task faster or better through the diverse structure and the compressed knowledge.… Continue

Cultural recruiting – completing the puzzle

In an earlier article we already discussed what exactly is meant with cultural fit and why it is a good choice for companies to consider it while looking for new employees. As a reminder: employees with a good cultural fit tend to stay longer in a company, are more motivated and help to create a harmonious teamwork. On the other hand, cultural fit shouldn’t be seen as a synonym for uniformity, because this would not be a good thing for the company either. All of this is easier said than done. The question here is, how one can find a cultural fit.… Continue

Cultural fit: when your employees go with the flow

Swim against the tideGood qualification, and the job interview was considerably promising, too – a nice guy; cheerful and yet confident and prudent. No question, a successful recruitment – or so it seemed. Very soon it got obvious that the new employee just does not fit into the company at all. This is a story that should be well-known in every HR department. The reason for such unsuccessful recruiting is often an absent cultural fit.… Continue

Digitalization in Europe? Wrong!

Although millions of dollars are invested by governments in digitalization programs, in majority of European SMEs digitalization is still in the early stage of development. About one billion Euros is being wasted in the HR departments of German-speaking DACH countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) alone, due to a lack of digitized processes, as a new study by jacando has shown.

Titelbild

The digital potential is not being used, or: This was not meant with “digitalization”!

Despite the wide range of possibilities such as one-click applications, social recruiting or various mobile recruiting forms, old structures still predominate in all the countries examined. Applications reach 34% of European SMEs by mail and 52% via e-mail.… Continue

Still recruiting oldshool via email? Total disaster! #TrumpTools

MAGA_logo.svg_The Netherlands lead the way, in how you could secure the kindness of the new supposedly most powerful man on earth (and everyone is following suit). You’ve likely already discovered one of the ‘everysecondcounts’ videos.

We were so impressed with the concept that we quickly decided to try to catch the favor of President Trump. But the countries and companies on this earth can argue for the second place. We claim the first place, at least when it comes to innovative applicant management and HR software.

With our “Trump-Tool” we make recruiting “great again”.

PS: Of course, the video content should be viewed with the same mindset as the ‘everysecondcounts’ campaign.… Continue
