»Nothing in the history of life is more constant than change.«
People, society and companies are subject to constant change. Especially cultural change is omnipresent for recruiters. In addition to demographic, generational and social change, the focus is on digitization.

4 Tips for Recruiters - Ready for Digitization
1. to sensitize the company management for digitization
According to a study by Xing, 67% of HR managers consider the digitization of recruiting to be extremely relevant – only 35% of managing directors see it the same way. For this reason, the management level in particular must be made aware of the importance of digitization. Here the right arguments can score, which can already be proven by facts and figures. Who wants to convince the executive floor, should communicate clearly that the digitization of the Recruitings has positive effects on the entire entrepreneurial success.
»Changes must not only be initiated by the top management, they must also begin there.«
2. proactively use all channels
Digitalization offers space for more time and new possibilities. Thanks to new tools, it is possible to communicate faster, more effectively and more extensively. Contacts must now be maintained more constantly and an employer brand must be presented transparently on all channels. Digitalization is the ideal way to combine channels and make better use of them. Instead of focusing on one option, you can now, for example, use proactive candidate approach, job advertisements, recommendation recruiting and much more in a broad portfolio for yourself. One should prepare oneself for this diversity.
»Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for change.«
3. redefine your recruiting role
More variety and flexibility also requires variable skills. Not everyone has to become a recruiting generalist, but mastering several recruiting roles can be an advantage in times of digitalization. Next Generation Recruiters go beyond the classic recruiting process. They are true brand ambassadors, use employer branding and are analytically familiar with the digital data pool.
»You can change the world or yourself. The second is more difficult.«
4. understand and allow digitization and its opportunities
The challenges of the shortage of skilled workers and the war for talent will soon be impossible to overcome without the new possibilities of digitization. Recruiters must have the courage to change as a basis and this also includes allowing innovations.
For example, 40% of Germans still feel negative feelings, such as fear, as AI continues to evolve. If we don’t go beyond that fear, we can’t use AI to make workflows more efficient than ever before.
»You don’t discover new parts of the world without having the courage to lose sight of old coasts.«
Change has always existed - today it only bears the face of digitization
The integrated quotations show that man has always been and always will be confronted with constant change. These wisdoms come from people who had the courage to change or even put forward their own innovative theses of their time. Not least for these reasons, their names are still well-known to many people today. So we have long known how to deal with digitization.
