Differences Matter – Talking Talent / Attracting Talent with Diverse Backgrounds

March 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Differences Matter - Talking Talent / Attracting Talent With Diverse Backgrounds


Globalisation and digitisation have significantly changed the job markets; on the one hand we can reach talent all around the globe very easily but on the other hand, the candidate-driven market creates new challenges for the organisation.

Diversity plays also an important role in this new world, where building teams with employees of different cultural backgrounds often prove a key for innovation and growth.

Companies need to find creative solutions to reach different target groups and to attract the best talent.

In order to help you prepare for some of these challenges, we co-established the initiative DIFFERENCES MATTER – TALKING TALENT, where we’ve created a series of lectures around the theme Talent and Diversity. We will bring keynote speakers to highlight different aspects of this important topic as well as create opportunities for interactive learning. The first talk will be about:

Attracting Talent with Diverse Background
How Can Diversity Win in the Recruitment Process?

Attracting the best talent is one of the most challenging tasks organisations face today, as well as a critical drive for growth. At the same time, it offers HR and the Recruiting team an opportunity to come up with creative ideas, how to create more inclusive hiring process and bring in diversity in their company.


“Merit has no gender” but work environments do
This lecture aims to inform and educate recruiters on how to create an inviting work environment for all genders, cultural backgrounds and people.
