NOVEMBER NEWS: WHATS NEW @TALENTOR FROM THE LAST 6 MONTH ?!




There were a long time no Talentor news, right ? But sometimes there is time for work and sometimes time for news (by the way, a lot of times in this sentence ;-) - ).
So, here comes new NEWS, what's going on @Talentor International in Vienna and globally: So there was a lot of new partner search, selection, video calls and meetings in 2016, to find the right and fitting partners around the globe.

Then there is a lot of increasing cross-border business, helping our clients in Europe and in China to fill their positions with the best candidates from the market.

In march my new book about headhunting with blog articles from the last 10 years was published, sorry in German only, but I promise, the next one, will be in english... I am proud to have sold more than 500 copies in 8 month, so there is an audience outside I didn't knew about yet. Thanx ! :-)

In September we had our annual partner summit in Bucarest, which is always a mixture of Future of Work Sessions and partying. Quite intense and effective, but also energy-sapping :-p.

Daniel Marwan, CEO and founder of ePunkt and mother of Talentor International, had a trip to Silicon Valley, just to have a look, if they doing right over there and to grap some inspiration for his IT Internet recruiting company (ePunkt), which is Nr. 1 in Austria in this field, with 105 employees at 4 locations and also to see some extras, which could be added to the eRecruiting Software, the 3rd branch of the grown ePunkt empire, which is established since 16 years on the Austrian recruiting market.

Then there were some conferences we joined this year e.g. sourceconHR Inside Summit and some others.

My personal role this year was to screen about 500 boutique headhunting companies around the globe, have video calls and see, which company would fit to the DNA of Talentor together with Michael Sarsteiner, CEO of Talentor. Out of this there is a new partner in the Netherlands, we've been talking to since 2 years and there are some more promising in the pipeline for this year in BeNeLux area, southeastern europe and the US.

Within the last 2 years I made around 800 Video Calls with companies worldwide, which learned me a lot about the global, fancy executive search market, because this was just 1/10 of the available headhunting companies worldwide, but in my personal opinion 9/10 are not so interesting and innovative to talk to. :-p (Yes, we are all cooking with the same water !)

This partner search felt sometimes like stealing Sisyphos his work(but someone has to do the job, right?! Greetings from the 3rd row :-p), but on the other side there was enough other inspiring work regarding new tools, innovation and leading my research team as well as preparation of the Talentor summits. So 2016 was definitely not boring and sometimes I am really surprised, that I am now working since 30 month at Talentor, which feels like 3 month.

Anyway, this was just a short update, you will get more news end of the year, together with facts, figures and numbers. Best regards from Vienna,

Thomas Zahlten

Baby-Boomer, Generation X und Millennials, der einzige Unterschied ist der Fokus, gespielt haben alle

Guten Morgen, hier nun die letzten Gedankenspiele zu diesem Thema, dann sind wir glaube ich durch damit. Wie die Überschrift schon sagt, unterscheidet diese 3 Gruppen eigentlich nur der Fokus, sowie vielleicht die technischen Möglichkeiten, der Spiel und Spassfaktor war und ist der gleiche, nur eben mit und ohen Social Media. Ich denke, um diese 3 Arten zu verstehen und was sie bewegt, ist es wichtig sich nochmal die jeweiligen Zeiten ins Gedächtnis zu rufen, als diese 3 Gruppen zwischen 20 und 30 waren. Dann wird ganz klar, dass diese Zeiterscheinungen unterschiedliche Ziele hatten, die alle mindestens so viel Spass gemacht haben, wie das Gründen eines Startups, nur erreicht letzteres seit einiger Zeit die größte Beachtung, weil es mit Arbeit zu tun hat und wichtiger erscheint, als vielleicht die Trends und Ziele der Baby-Boomer und Generation X. Die folgenden Kurzcharakteristika, helfen vielleicht etwas beim Verständnis, auch wenn man über dieses Thema auch eine Doktorarbeit schreibe…

Headhunting is like Fine Arts and Rocket Science, Mass Recruiting is the modern job slavery and like fast-food

Yes, there was a blog post about this 1 year ago by BREADHUNTER, but I think during these times, you can't talk enough about this topic to open people's mind and attitude about it. If HR departments and companies understand the difference of this topic, I am sure the quality of the right, fitting candidates will rise and you have in the end engaged and happy employees, instead of just another filled position with a bread-and-butter-worker. In times where professions are diluted by adventurers, executive search and headhunting came to a professional level like a real-estate-agents. Everybody does it, from housewives to financial-services sales freaks or ex-car salesmen. Because you have no seal of quality our industry was flooded by everyone who had no idea, which job he can do, so let's became a recruiter. Ok, now to the difference of the fine arts of real headhunting, which is also like cooking with a lot of spices and high-quality ingredients vs. fast food. In traditional job…
