Programme highlights at the re:cruiting area

For the first time at #rp19 there will be a re:cruiting area where you can connect with potential employers and applicants. Lab 1886, Volkswagen We, TUI, familie redlich and Wikimedia are looking for new talents.

Are you looking for a job? Then register for the speed meetings in the re:cruiting area here.


The re:cruiting area will also address the topic of re:work, the future of work. After all, the world of work is shaped by matters such as digitization, demographic change and automated processes as well. The demands made on a flexible work environment, agile corporate structures and the recruiting process for specialists are constantly changing. What do careers look like today? What can we expect from employers? How do you address potential employees in times of diverse dialogue opportunities? What do talents have to bring to the table these days?

Some highlights from the stage programme:

Working with a different (human) operating system

Can I achieve more precise tasks and more efficient working methods in my company by means of neurodiversity? What advantages do I have from working with autistic people and what challenges do I face? Heike Gramkow and Daniel Willkomm from auticon can provide us with an answer in their keynote "Working with a different (human) operating system".

It's the end of the work as we know it

Work is becoming more and more decentralized and networked. At the same time, employees' and corporations' needs are changing. "It's the end of the work as we know it" highlights the implications of this change for structure and leadership, for people, companies and places of work, as well as why New Work seems so desirable. Ideas on how to make New Work available to all people and not just to knowledge workers by Ansgar Oberholz (Institute for New Work).

Becoming self-effective thanks to Working Out Loud

The demand for New Work is immense: to work agilely, creatively, personally and freely just like in a start-up, but with the security and pay of an established company. Is it really possible to do both? Even within a large corporation? How can another form of cooperation, leadership and learning, such as cultural change, succeed? Katharina Krentz, head of the Working Out Loud Initiative at Bosch, addresses the topic of New Work and focuses on methods of virtual collaboration, employee networking, and cultural change in "Out of the silo and into the network - becoming self-effective thanks to Working Out Loud."

The downside of transformation

Organizational change, with more emphasis on personal responsibility, is a fundamentally good development - but not when people are overwhelmed and left to their own devices. Transformation needs support and people who take responsibility. So what do employees need in order to be prepared to embark on unknown paths? Leila Steinhilper from the Fürstenberg Institute gives a look at the downside of transformation, which is often forgotten in the enthusiasm surrounding new work environments. 

Working at the Lab

"Working at the Lab": personnel strategist and talent finder David Hailey delves deep into the extraordinary world of Lab1886. He will describe the subtleties of how to hold on to talents in a highly competitive market and how Lab1886 has succeeded in achieving this.

New Work, New Career?

Rapid technological leaps, ever-changing demands on the world of work, and agile corporate structures have blurred the previously established job requirements. There no longer is a single right qualification, a clearly defined job profile or a unambiguously specified range of tasks. The result: the classic chimney career erodes. But how can one still pursue a career nowadays? How can one evolve with the company? Are there other options than being promoted or leaving the company?
