Internal communications is changing slowly. We still see many newsletters and magazines with the usual content (Interview with the CEO, Our office in Dubai, We ran for charity in Zurich and The secret hobby of ….). These newsletters and magazines hardly ever excite employees. Employees want to be heard, employees want to be taken serious and employees appreciate quick and honest communication.

What are some of the trends we expect to influence internal communications in 2019? The 5 M’s for 2019.

This is no more a secret that engaged employees are more likely to perform better and improve organizational success. And as the companies move more towards agile organizational models, there will be more increase in the employee engagement rates.

Employee Engagement refers to an employee’s job satisfaction, loyalty, and inclination to spend discretionary effort toward organizational goals. Companies measure engagement through an annual employee survey or by a continuous feedback culture.

An Auslanders view of Recruitment in Germany

After a year of working and living in Germany, and after being part of a HR team in a company that was both rapidly scaling and had a high turnover of staff, I’ve come to know the quirks and nuances of the German recruitment landscape very well indeed. Not just the company I worked for either. As my interim role neared its conclusion I approached and was approached by several companies and got to see much of the recruitment culture from the other side. So what have I learned? Let us dive in and take a look.

Rehumanizing people in the digital economy

Rehumanizing People in the Digital Economy

The digital economy is shaping the aspects of society, including the way people interact, the economic landscape, the future of work and business transformation empowering with fast-changing technologies.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is distinguishable from the others because it is where humans meet the cyber world; where technology and people are not distinct, not separate. The Fourth Industrial Revolution will change not only what we do but also who we are. It will affect our identity, role, responsibility, a way of leadership and our mindsets.

2018 saw the toy giant, Toys R’Us close down all of their shops. Marks & Spencers has been hanging by a thread for a number of years now. Toshiba was forced to sell its computer chip business in 2017, and we know of the massive losses in the billions of Euros suffered by mobile phone giants for their texting services, due to the arrival of WhatsApp and Viber.

Volatility and unpredictability are increasing in business, as well as in the economy and the environment, and one of the questions large corporations and companies need to ask themselves, where is our innovation capacity going to come from in the next couple of years.

Can your recruitment process be improved? Think again!

How to improve your recruitment process

There is perhaps no other decision faced by Human Resources professionals, that comes with such great responsibility, and yet so much uncertainty at the same time, than hiring a new person. There are endless resources with good advice on how to manage the entire process from advertising to appointing the candidates, and recruitment over the years has become its own industry, from agencies to thought-leaders, apps and software, to certification and training organisations.

And even though the industry is booming, particularly in the current labour market context, the majority of tools and methods we apply to attract and hire employees have proven to be not efficient in predicting future work performance, employee engagement and organisational success. As so much depends on finding and holding on to the right people, I venture it is time to spend some time on reflecting about our recruitment habits and re-consider some of the tools and approaches we deploy.

Is employee onboarding still managed manually at your company? What is the best way to create recruitment videos fast and easy with your smartphone? How can companies track current skills gaps and identify areas for improvement easily through an app? How can you connect your employees with opportunities to take part in team-based challenges or fitness competitions?

In today’s business reality, companies always need new ideas and approaches, and now more and more often they do not come from the largest solution-providers in the industry. HR startups, many of them providing traditional companies with solutions to the above questions, have become the lifeblood of technological and service innovation over the last 5 years. From advanced recruiter-bots to alternative approaches to attracting and keeping the best talent, we love getting to know the up-and-coming startups who are pushing the envelope of the HR world a little bit differently, and a little bit further.

How to stand out with your response to the Zukunft Personal Europe call for papers

Zukunft Personal Europe call for papers

Please raise your hand if you’ve ever felt paralyzed by a conference call for paper. When you open up the application document you are hit with the stark black Times New Roman font on a white background, bumping off any creative writing you may have felt a moment ago. It’s a daunting-enough task to create a 20-slide deck to report your monthly business metrics – never mind putting together a 600 to 1000 words topic proposal for the Zukunft Personal Europe call for papers to be competed with thousands of similar applications.
