Visit to the Talent Pro Job Fair in Munich on 22.03.2018

Thursday, the 22.03. started early for us. We had to take the train to Munich, where the TalentPro Career Fair was to be held for the first time this year. As HR officers, we did not want to miss the latest methods and trends in employer branding and talent management. Our first train was delayed, we were afraid that we would miss our connection. Luckily though it was delayed too, and we were able to catch it after all. The system works 😉

We arrived in Munich, and were quite amazed to see the hall full. A total of 62 exhibitors presented topics such as recruiting, employer branding and talent attraction. In addition, there were six different stages where exciting lectures were on, such as one by Kerstin Wagner (Head of Talent Aquisition Deutsche Bahn AG) or Dr. Nico Rose (Vice President of Employer Branding & Talent Acquisition, Bertelsmann SE & Co. KgaA). Numerous best practice examples were also presented in addition to these inspiring lectures. The abundance of topics makes it evident, how diverse HR work is, in the area of employer branding alone.

Ein weiteres wichtiges Thema war vorallem die Digitalisierung der Personalarbeit: Wie werden die neuen Technologien unsere Art zu Arbeiten ändern? Wie werden Arbeitsplätze zukßnftig gestaltet sein? Was muss eine zukunftsfähige HR-Abteilung heute schon leisten? Viele spannende Fragen, mit deren Antworten wir uns momentan beschäftigen.

Abschließend war es definitiv eine rundum gelungene Veranstaltung mit viel Input. Hierbei konnten wir viele Ideen und Anregungen mitnehmen, die wir bereits in unserer täglichen Arbeit umsetzen.

Another important topic was the digitization in the human resources field: How will the new technologies change our way of working? How will jobs be designed in the future? What it takes to have a sustainable HR department? Many exciting questions for us to deal with.

It was definitely a successful event, lots of inputs. We were able to take away many ideas and suggestions that we now implement in our daily work.

We look forward now to the next fair in the beautiful Munich!
