Some time ago, we have dealt with the modern workplace and the future of work. The workplace has a great impact on the productivity, creativity and well-being of employees. But what do people feel as important in their workplace? How do they imagine their perfect workstation and what should not be missing under any circumstances?

Because the perfect workplace looks a little different for everyone, we asked employees in a recent survey and here are the results:

The own desk, which could be personalized and decorated, is often dismissed as a story of yesterday.… 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

Lack of Employer Branding: Is the skilled worker shortage of the companies own making after all?

In recent years it has been one of the most widely discussed topics in the media. Again and again, companies are saying that there are not enough applicants and therefore a large number of vacancies remain unoccupied. But what is the role of the companies? How do they recruit and retain qualified talents and can they do something to boost the number of applicants?

More than one in two German small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) complain that not all orders can be taken due to a lack of personnel, as a study by Ernst & Young has shown this year.

It plays an important role not only in the private sphere, but also in the professional one – wherever interaction with people is concerned. So it’s ready made for HR! Many companies also see it this way therefore bet on social media. They are all taking part in some way, and know something about it – and that is the problem, as the third part of the study “HR Management Trends 2016” has found out.

How to scare off candidates…

Have you ever applied for a job and never received any feedback? Or have you ever filled in an online form for more than 30 minutes, and then, after a short pause, learned that you exceeded the time-limit and that all entered data has vanished? Or did you ever have to „chop up“ your job references because your scans still exceeded the upload limit even after the one hundredth attempt? Such experiences are annoying, but unfortunately they occur way too often. And they are an essential part of your candidate experience.

Digitalisation: Enemy or friend of humans in the HR?

Industrie 4.0, Digitalisierung, Innovation, Globalisierung, Business

Algorithms for candidate matching, a chatbot as the first “contact person” and Big Data in talent management – digitalisation in HR is versatile and knows no boundaries. So it is not surprising that you sometimes ask yourself how this development will influence HR’s responsibilities and tasks. What is clear, however, is that digitalisation is no longer to be stopped, will gain further importance in the coming years and will bring about some change. Does this mean, however, that HR profiles will change completely and the HR manager of today will cease to exist?… Continue
