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

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

Cultural recruiting – completing the puzzle

illustration of a Woman confused with a piece of 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

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

Digitalization in Europe? Most wanted!

– By Melissa Rösch –

The big question after the sobering results of our Swiss study – how developed are other European countries in terms of digitalization? How digital are our neighbouring countries when it comes to HR? And how do they actually recruit their talents?

Internet of Things

Looking for a nice café online while on vacation often ends without success which probably not only I as a Marketing(-oriented) Intern have noticed. Most of the time you will not find the best insider tips on the web, but – as in the old days – through word-of-mouth recommendation. However, in times of Instagram and Co, people not only want to look up where to find the best coffee or paella in advance, but also photos of the food and further information.Thanks to the multitude of food bloggers, some restaurants are only listed on Google because of them, but an independent website can sometimes be difficult to find.… Continue
