Quo vadis, HR?

Cloud computing, digital personal data, big data, crowdsourcing, HR-Analytics, …

Question: Where is the HR in the HR blog?!

Answer: Well, how much “human” is actually still in the HR? Are we not all a bit IT today, a bit digitized and networked? And if not, is there any future for HR as a professional independent department?

The above expressions could be read on technical pages, IT blogs or computer magazines. One would assume that HR had long been fully digitized and has arrived in the “4.0-era”, but the reality is different. So what are HR managers doing? Are there still boundaries between personnel and IT or digitization experts?… 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

The big mourning for lost employees

Study “Employee Experience: Hired and forgotten!?”

The fact that the process of hiring employees is expensive and complex, no one doubts. The only way around it is to have satisfied, motivated employees who don’t think of a job change. Especially in times when talents and skilled workers are fought for, it is necessary to take more care of your own employees with appropriate measures and to bind them to the company. Easier said than done, as the latest study “Employee Experience: Hired and forgotten!?” by jacando shows. In the study, about 150 employees from Swiss and German companies were surveyed on the topic of “Employee Experience” and its importance nowadays, the great impact that digitalization has on it, and how this impact ultimately affects employee attitudes.… Continue

Jobsharing – how technology supports the working model

Working Models of the Future and New Work are the new buzzwords par excellence and cannot be overlooked in HR media. And since it is known that the younger generations have changed views on the work-life balance, flexible working-time models are on everyone’s lips and virtually unimaginable. While home office opportunities and sabbaticals are common to many companies, there is a model that is not so often spoken about – although it is actually quite obvious: jobsharing.

Our first article of our series on jobsharing was about what jobsharing is, for whom the model is suitable and which advantages and disadvantages the division of a workplace can offer.… Continue
