Conditions on the labour market are currently better for applicants than they have been for a long time. The unemployment rate is at a low point nationwide, experts and managers are urgently sought.
In the past it was enough to place a job ad, to select the right person from the mass of applications, to interview them and then sign an employment contract. Today, the process of talent acquisition is becoming more complex and demanding, not least due to globalization and digitalization. But it also offers new opportunities and possibilities for companies. These multiple opportunities require new decisions for you as an employer, e.g. which channels to use to publish a job, which channels to search for employees and which technologies to use in the selection process.
This is to ensure a quick, fair and appropriate selection of applicants, and also to offer the candidates prompt feedback and an excellent applicant experience.
Today’s applicants often have different expectations and demands on their employer than in the past. It is becoming increasingly important to have a good work-life balance, an appreciative employer who develops their skills and provides flexible working conditions. Most people are looking for a job with “purpose”, i.e. a meaningful role.
