For more than 20 years, the economy has preferred the type of employees whose education and diplomas fitted the desired position exactly. The way it looks, this trend is currently turning around!
“It’s about time, and we see this absolutely positively,” says Dr. Monika V. Kronbügel (PhD.). Together with her team from Global DiVision, she has recently refilled the ranks of production line managers of a customer in the beverage industry. Now, women and men work there who have been recruited from the most varied industries, among them automotive, plastic technology and machine construction.
The bottom line is that an outstanding, agile team has been assembled whose desire for change and innovation has already shown the willingness to peer far outside the box, when it comes to looking for a new job. “That doesn’t happen without changes in the stuck-in-its-ways recruiting structure that many companies established back at the beginning of the 90s,” says the CEO further. “And it wouldn’t have happened without the openness of our customer to choose its applicants very differently than previously.”
