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 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? 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

Study focus on Social Media in HR

Hardly any other term has shaped the internet and user behavior as profoundly as Social Media. 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.

HR Study shows: Digitalization is not IT

Mobile recruiting, applicant management systems, social media and online job-search platforms – they all have one thing in common: they are children of the digitalization and are shaking up the HR scene. While in the past recruiting was done by hand, today (almost) everything is done with a mouse click. The processes are visibly more efficient and simpler, thus giving HR recruiters more time for the truly important processes and the people behind them. – Sadly this is not true. Recruiting is still done like yesterday, incredibly homogenous and much is misunderstood, like the study “HR Management Trends 2016” shows.

A fresh wind in the recruiting market

Most of us can remember it very well: job offers printed in newspapers, personal contacts and career fairs. These were the ways with which companies time not too long ago looked for new employees. Today the acquisition of staff is different: Most employers rely on the Internet and thus also on social media. Where head-hunters formerly had to put a lot of efforts into making contacts, today it usually is only a quick research on the internet, and what used to be personal recommendations through friends and acquaintances, is today done with just one click. With the advent of social media in recruiting, a fresh wind is blowing into the recruitment market.… Continue
