Recruiting in times of upheaval on the labour market

Hans-Christoph Kürn, Head of Social Media & E-Recruiting, Siemens AG:


"Recruiting methods need to evolve in line with the current upheaval on the labour market." 

Just a few years ago, companies and recruiters simply posted job ads and waited for applications to arrive. But change is now afoot with recruiters having to get creative to attract the right people to fill their vacancies.


Posting job ads on your corporate website, online business networks and job boards is still an integral part of recruiting, but companies now need to do more than that to make sure they receive enough applications to choose from. This is where active recruiting comes into play as a surefire way of identifying suitable candidates who want to be found as they're usually already employed and not actively looking for a new job. This means that companies looking to fill vacancies have to really work on their employer branding and do everything they can to appeal to potential applicants.


What's important here is that a healthy balance of active and passive recruiting methods are used in conjunction with showcasing your company as a great place to work, e.g. on business platforms such as XING. Here, members can create a personal profile they can then use to get found by companies, to connect with other people, and to look for new career opportunities. Siemens is extremely happy about using XING's recruiting solutions to showcase its business and current vacancies!

Active candidate recruiting: the key to finding skilled workers


Companies are increasingly reaching out to candidates directly in order to win the battle for top experts and executives. 


In order to fill vacancies, companies are also having to approach people who aren't necessarily looking for a job, but are open to offers as this market is three times the size of the jobseeker market. This means that active candidate recruiting allows you to tap into a much larger talent pool.

"With XING Projects, we have a huge reach to approach top freelancers and service providers quickly and easily."
Find the right people for your business


Passive recruiting strategies usually involve posting a job ad in daily newspapers, magazines, etc. to give potential candidates an opportunity to apply for the vacancy.


Social networks are also well suited to job ads as you can target certain people whose profile matches the vacancy you’re looking to fill. You can also recommend job ads to your network, allowing you to benefit from the viral effect of social networking.

Attract and retain great employees


Companies that do employer branding work are more likely to be noticed by job applicants and valued by employees. It also boosts the company’s image, which gives businesses the edge over the competition. 


Employer branding helps to guide employees, managers and job applicants. It has a positive effect on the hiring process, employee retention, motivation and commitment. Employer branding attracts more suitable candidates while also boosting internal identification with the company and its culture.
