The scene in Amsterdam might not have the financial power of London, or the same value-for-money workforce as Berlin, but its laidback business laws have attracted a decent amount of startups. The laissez-faire attitude to founding a business is what makes it easy for entrepreneurs to create. You just hand in your documents and get your signature. Then the tax benefits for starting companies and 19-25% corporate tax rates, which the government wants to reduce even further.

Startups in the city benefit from a nurturing and supportive environment; startup accelerators like Rockstart and Startupbootcamp Amsterdam, and tech conference behemoth The Next Web also calls Amsterdam home. The city has a co-working culture nurturing whole communities of support. Grab yourself a ticket to the Amsterdam Tech Job Fair here!

1. Transport Structure

Transport Structure - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

Amsterdam is unique in terms of public transportation. The city is well known for its bike-friendly streets and other networks of transportation such as ferries, trains, buses, and metros. These all help reduce traffic and ease movement.

Amsterdam is exceptionally bike-friendly, and locals are encouraged to take bike rides to and from work or any other place in Amsterdam. It is a millennials hotspot for these free transportation styles.

2. Vibrant and Modern City

Vibrant and Modern City - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

Amsterdam is Europe’s most modern, young, relaxed, and vibrant city, a place that enables one to work and bike home in less than 20 minutes, promoting time management to do and achieve the things of value. Amsterdam is also home to the largest data transport hub in the world. The internet exchange helps to make Amsterdam a hotspot for technology startups, and its creativity is proof of its being a progressive modern city.

3. Government Support

Government Support - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

The Dutch government has worked so hard to negotiate favourable trade deals with most nations across the globe, giving companies that operate there a bearable business environment to grow in. The government supports entrepreneurship through ambitious entrepreneurship action plans, and set aside €75 million to early-stage finances to entrepreneurs, strengthen the international position of startups and grow business, provide temporary permits for non-Eu entrepreneurs.

4. Education System

Education System - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

Amsterdam is investing a lot of effort in strengthening its homegrown tech pool through education. Coding schools of Amsterdam have made their mission to ensure that children in the city’s primary school learn 21st-century tech skills that matter. Universities are also getting serious about these areas, as proven by the Amsterdam school of data science. They offer over 250 bachelors, masters, and postgraduate programs. These schools collaborate with some of the biggest companies in tech, including Google, Facebook, and Phillips.

5. Startups Magnet

Startups Magnet - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

Amsterdam has become a technology-driven and forward-thinking city that makes it a prime area for startups to start, grow, and flourish. It has a ton of support for interested entrepreneurs who want to start new companies or simply work independently in Amsterdam. This makes it a magnet for tech talent and also makes it nearly impossible for companies to not open up in Amsterdam to take advantage of the vast amount of tech talent.

6. Variety of Tech Companies

Variety of Tech Companies - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

Christina, who works as a developer of a trading firm Optiva says, “the variety of work you can find here is just massive compared to other places” Amsterdam has companies like BTC company, which makes cryptocurrency, Takeaway. Com which deals in online food ordering space and Adyen the pioneer from Dutch unicorn just to mention but a few of the diverse and wide variety of companies that scout for tech talent to work with them in Amsterdam.

7. Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Balance - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

According to the 2018 OECD better life index, Amsterdam leads the way when it comes to work-life balance among those who work in the tech field. Netherland, as a country, ranks number one in the world when it comes to work/life balance. In the study that was carried out found that only 0.5 percent of the employees in the Netherlands work long hours. Since most of Amsterdam’s tech workers don’t work around the clock, it gives them more time to explain the city and take up an interest in other activities after work.

8. Tech Community

Tech Community - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

The feeling of community helps people from all parts of the world become comfortable and adjust to working and living in Amsterdam. One of the major aspects of living in Amsterdam is the feeling of community and togetherness. This makes people feel like family because they spend so much time together as software developers, tech experts to entrepreneurs, and this enables them to share different ideas and build on the already existing ideas.

9. Cost of Living

Cost of Living - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

You may find it surprising that Amsterdam ranks relatively low when it comes to the cost and standards of living, yet its an area considered to be a hub with the largest data transport hub in the world. There’s also a bonus for international tech talent considered to move to Amsterdam like the lucrative 30 percent tax break given to foreign nationals, which help make a living in Amsterdam a bit better and the cost of living slightly lower.

10. Smooth Communication

Smooth Communication - 10 REASONS AMSTERDAM IS A TECH TALENT HUB

Pretty much everyone in Amsterdam speaks English, which makes it easy for those who live internationally to come to visit, live, or work in Amsterdam. There’s low or no language barrier in Amsterdam compared to other cities in Europe, which makes it easy to blend in because everyone speaks English. This is considered the best hub for entrepreneurs because you don’t have to worry about learning another language.

Hello everyone!

To prevent spreading the virus, we’ve decided that it’s in the best interest of the exhibitors, attendees, volunteers, and staff to postpone some of our Spring events for the Summer of 2020.

Due to the fast-developing news about COVID-19 and its impact on several cities in Europe, we feel that postponement is the best course of action. Protecting the safety and health of our exhibitors and community of guests is the most important thing.

We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time and look forward to welcoming you to Techmeetups events.

Also, if you have a VIP Job Seeker ticket, this will be honoured at the Summer edition of the event ticket that you purchased.

Any queries about the event that you booked, please write to us here marketing@techmeetups.com.

BOOK OF THE MONTH

Living in a fast-paced world, it seems as though the globe is getting smaller by the minute. The influx of advanced technology has made every industry dip their toes into the digital landscape, boosting the demand for remote employment more than ever before. In our structured, regulated society, the ability to take full control of time management, as well as where time spent, is enticing more and more people to undertake a nomadic lifestyle.

Gone are the days when a workplace was a location you had to physically be strapped down to every single day. Workplaces can now be found everywhere and can even change from one day to the next. If you are thinking of transitioning to the nomadic lifestyle, the preparation may be a bit daunting. You have to find the cities or regions that will fit your lifestyle. You need to find and maintain a solid flow of income. You need to know the different visa requirements. You need to handle the income you earn overseas and know the taxes that come with it. Most importantly, you need to figure out where to begin. Fret not because we got you covered.

While most people associate digital nomads with a person sipping a carefully crafted cocktail while lying in a hammock on a beach in Thailand, this is not typically a true representation of the nomadic lifestyle, at least, not at first. While getting to this stage is possible, it requires preparation, mentally, physically, and most especially financially. We are not saying it’s impossible, but it requires work and dedication.

This book will ensure that you approach the transition with the right mindset and attitude, and if you follow this guide carefully, that you will be able to create an unforgettable experience. Check more about it here.

Virtual teams are increasingly becoming a fact of business life. Since they are relatively new, they can be a challenge to manage because one needs to transfer the corporate culture of the physical workplace to a remote structure.

Here’s a list of strategies to successfully handle your virtual team that you may want to implement instantly.

1. Positive Work Relationship

Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team - Positive Work Relationship

Building and fostering the true spirit of a team for people working towards a common goal irrespective of gender, ethnicity, etc. Nurturing the team spirit through setting professional standards that drive efficiency and put the team in the right work mindset, through embracing progressive work attitudes to explore individual skills and abilities to create a results-oriented environment.

Online teams generally have little or no tensions outside deadlines and communication, so it is easier to reinforce positive work relations. Here, the focus is on the individual profession and intellectual contribution rather than anything else. Freedom to express ideas and perspectives.

2. Good Communication System

Good Communication System - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Maintaining smooth communication depends on what the organisation decides works best. Depending on the structure of the team, communication is possible in many ways;  email, text chat program, video chat etc. Open and reliable lines of communication to cater to individual remoteness, foster a culture of communication throughout the organisation. Lead by example by giving regular updates and holding check-ins with your team. A network of communication is very important in sharing information, documents, reports and other necessary documentation.

Graphical.io is a platform created by Techmeetups that offers a centralised online location for companies to facilitate the smooth operation of a remote team. The remote workers can directly communicate as would in the traditional workplace through tags, comments, links, and store and share documents, spreadsheets, and slide presentations on the platform alongside Google docs. It is perfect for reporting on weekly metrics, holding discussions and announcements.

3. Delegation of Work

Delegation of Work - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Allocate tasks and projects to the right people – those with the skills, knowledge or experience to get desired results. Ensuring work is delegated to people based on their knowledge, skills and potential to produce good results saves a lot of time, builds trust, sharpens efficiency and skills and ensures reliability.

Keep remote teams on the same page with a personalised team charter. A team charter is a document that defines the direction, goals, and boundaries of the team. It helps focus the team and onboard new employees. The document indicates how employees will execute tasks, reach desired results, and measure progress and success. A customised Kanban system on Graphical.IO narrows done systems and processes for work priorities and the systematic flow of the task load from one member to another by roles and teams, that is simple to track.

4. Motivation

Motivation - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Making sure everyone on board feels included in decision making, a celebration of achievements and providing an atmosphere with a sense of purpose. Members of an online team benefit a lot more from a strong support network. Providing extensive onboarding and ongoing training opportunities guarantees a formidable team so that each member of the team is equipped with the resources, tools, and confidence they’ll need once they are on their own. Participating in training and development ensures a team likely to stay motivated.

Make training courses available online in diverse formats (instructor-led online learning, simulations, self-directed e-learning courses) make it easy and flexible for employees to participate.

5. Set SMART Goals

Set SMART Goals - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

A Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Reliable and Timely work plan for given projects and tasks. Micromanaging virtual teams can be frustrating if not impossible, so once the guidelines are in place, the focus must be on results and not activity. Create a hierarchy of goals on projects. Broader business goals will most likely dictate these goals, or it may be up to individuals and the team to establish goals. This is an opportunity to meet in person if possible, while working through a strategic planning process.

Each member should be well versed with the overruling company objectives, but through smaller goals, individuals have to understand how their efforts fit into the bigger picture. Work with each individual to set personalised goals that align with company goals.

For each company goal, each member must understand their contribution.

6. Defined Work Systems

Defined Work Systems - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Create and maintain a standard-setting of how the team can easily navigate tasks to achieve specific and desired results. Cut out how each member can access the help or tools they need to get their tasks done, by automating any procedure that needs to be automatic.

Diversity in roles means diversity in ways of going about tasks. Structuring standards positively impacts time management for the team to achieve the desired result in the shortest period. By these standards and automation of repeatable work systems, the team has fewer questions and quickly gets the idea of what certain tasks require. The work systems have to be standardised to incorporate maximum effectiveness, and tailored to make room for flexibility to complete tasks at the best of individual ability.

Project management tools come in handy for tracking deadlines. Their major value for the team and company are sending out alerts and reminders for deadlines so that no task is forgotten and they help prevent late deliveries. They provide a quick daily, a weekly or monthly overview of what needs to be done, by who, and when. Tools like Google Docs are a great addition, and the same is valid for time tracking applications.

7. Acknowledge Good Work

Acknowledge Good Work - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Recognise good work and promote it. Team members and teams that go the extra mile for the organisation should be recognised and rewarded. A celebratory spirit for achievements and milestones, setting work trends and bringing in more business.

Pay attention to the best performers as much as the rest of the team. Without the clear boundaries that office life provides, the go-getters may have workdays that never end, setting up for exhaustion and error.

Conducting regular one-on-ones with each team member to hold them accountable for performance and to check in on workload and support needed.

Acknowledgement can be done in formal ways, such as formal weekly “shout outs” via email or social media, and in moments when members are going above and beyond. Recognition should always be specific and culture; a handwritten thank-you note, a shout-out in a newsletter or social media post, etc.

8. Periodic Company Reviews

Periodic Company Reviews - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

These help to bring a sense of innovation, development and freshness by recognising progress, setting new goals and standards and structures, create new systems and to check on how the team is coping and how the company is performing. An overview of results, setbacks and the new business ground gives individuals a sense of direction for improvement and change. It is a virtual New Year.

9. Promote the Company Vision

Promote the Company Vision - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Keep the vision of the company at the forefront of all work and tasks. Creating content to promote, display and celebrate the company for the members keeps the team inspired and rejuvenated. In a few words, document why the business does what it does. A message which speaks to the good of humanity, but related to the industry. Metaphors for the traditional office go a long way to fan off isolation and alienation. Virtual team-building exercises that promote solidarity with the vision are excellent additions.

Nontraditional workers value mission-driven organisations because they want to feel their time is being used for something worthwhile and also consolidate for the structure of traditional workplaces (travelling to work, visuals of company works and items). State your mission clearly and infuse it in everything you do.

10. Human Resource Planning

Human Resource Planning - Top Ten Ways to Manage an Online Team

Get acquainted with individuals and identify strengths and build on them toward more reliable connections and results. Effective collaboration strengthens team bonds and builds trust as thought processes and working styles sync between people. When staff can build on each other’s ideas and play to their strengths, work relations flourish.

This helps to have clearly defined teams, creates the expectation that people should be working collaboratively, even from a distance. Particularly with remote workers, people need to know where they belong and to whom they report.

Encourage regular meetings via video conference, as these promote a sense of community and familiarity.

What’s the most difficult part of just about every technology adoption? It’s not the technology. It’s the adoption. Your employees must actually use the technology, and getting their buy-in isn’t a guarantee. In fact, one survey conducted by strategy+business revealed that about 50% of manufacturers believe their employees are not open to digital change. Thus a thoughtful change management plan must accompany any IT initiative.

Managers play an important role in change management and ensuring that their direct reports embrace new technology, so it’s critical to get their buy-in before they introduce the technology to other employees. In a Prosci study of 575 change leaders, 84% ranked manager and supervisor engagement as “extremely important” or “very important” to project success.

A new role for managers

Managers on a factory floor have plenty of daily responsibilities, and change management isn’t usually one of those. Yet they’ll be on the front lines of change management for their direct reports, with multiple responsibilities that are likely outside their expertise:

  • Managers are the most appropriate people to communicate changes to their direct reports. While they should receive relevant information and talking points from senior leadership, managers are better equipped to deliver messages in a way that will resonate with their employees.
  • Managers’ level of acceptance for change will directly impact their employees’ perception of (and potential resistance to) that change. Managers, then, must be more than messengers. They must be enthusiastic advocates for the change ahead. They must also be prepared to address employees’ reservations and concerns to build support for change.
  • The introduction of new technology changes daily processes and procedures, and employees will look to managers to support their adjustment. Managers will invariably act as educators and coaches as they guide their employees through issues that might hinder effective adoption.
  • Managers will be responsible not only for communicating the progress of an IT initiative with their staff, but also for communicating with the project management team. They are uniquely positioned to act as a liaison, bringing back insights on usability and functionality, particularly during the implementation phase.

It’s clear that a manager’s role in change management will require wearing multiple hats—in addition to fulfilling all their regular duties. But before managers can act as effective change managers, they must first understand and accept how the change will affect them.

5 REASONS MARS PETCARE IS PUTTING DATA TALENT AT THE HEART OF ITS BUSINESS

1. Mars Petcare has a phenomenal data platform, and the huge potential of its data has resulted in a team dedicated to building this asset, expanding capabilities, and driving analytics. The platform currently holds data on almost 100M unique pets and is the only one of its kind. From veterinary appointments to medical records, activity data to DNA profiles, the richness of the information about pets is incredible.

2. Having in-house skills dedicated to ensuring data is secure and advancing data capabilities is a real advantage. Every model, platform or system is designed with bespoke architecture specific to Mars Petcare’s needs, and its team has the skills to support and evolve the data ecosystem and processing technologies.

3. Data is driving the creation of new innovative products that are shaping the future of pet care. The company’s Whistle Fit dog activity trackers provide users with valuable data-driven insights that enable owners to better care for their dogs, and its latest release also offers custom nutrition recommendations. Mars Petcare owned Antech Diagnostics launched a new AI-driven diagnostic tool that can predict whether a cat will develop chronic kidney disease up to two years before traditional clinical diagnosis. This tool is the first of many predictive diagnostics in the pipeline.

4. Having such a rich data set provides a huge opportunity for new research. From understanding pet obesity and advancing pet health, to analysing shopper behaviour and identifying growth opportunities, the insights provided by Mars Petcare’s data platform are transforming the way it does business and improving the lives of pets everywhere.

5. Data and pets – need we say anymore?

Our Associates also think big, working to end pet homelessness and alleviate student debt for veterinarians. The WALTHAM Petcare Science Institute is also driving the innovations we need to improve pet health through nutrition, data and veterinary care.

Original post by Netcentric, A Cognizant Digital Business

When it comes to digital experience business and digital marketing, the only constant is change. In 2019, we saw expectations for personalized interactions soar as more brands used technology to put customers at the heart of their digital offering. We’ve already given you a roundup of our key insights from 2019, but are you ready for the challenges of 2020?

Here to help you realize your digital vision, Netcentric brings you the five key trends that brands must be aware of if they want to stay at the forefront of customer experiences in the coming year:

Adobe Experience Platform

Optimizing CX for the experience economy has been key throughout 2019 and for many businesses  leveraging the Adobe Experience Platform (AEP) has been pivotal in this transformation. As we head into 2020, there will be a lot more at stake when it comes to implementing a superior customer experience. In fact, product usage metrics will become key indicators of a company’s value and will rank alongside financials in terms of measuring a digital business’ health and potential for growth. When a company files for an IPO today, if they are leveraging AEP, their easily quantifiable product usage metrics can be used to measure customer engagement and happiness. In 2020, usage metrics such as adoption, retention and stickiness will become crucial indicators for investors in the decision to back digital businesses. The transformative potential of leveraging AEP to achieve superior customer experience is, therefore, only set to increase throughout 2020.

AI integration

Gartner predicts that 80% of emerging technologies will have AI foundations by 2021. By 2023, they foresee that artificial intelligence and deep learning approaches will overtake traditional machine learning as the main approach for applying data science in digital communications. Whether marketers like it or not, AI will become an ever-more pervasive part of customer’s lives in 2020. That means the winners and losers of 2020 will be determined by how quickly and effectively brands take advantage of the wide capabilities of this technology: to optimize operations, learn more about their audiences, and to adapt their services better to the specific needs of those audiences. AI isn’t a tickbox to be checked symbolically in a single project, it’s a technology which will infuse all platforms and tools. Brands looking to stand out in the digital noise of 2020 should prepare for profound and wide-reaching AI integration.

Hello everyone!

SpaceX has launched a batch of 60 Starlink satellites to orbit, marking its fifth overall launch of a group of 60 of the small spacecraft and its third this year alone. This launch brings the total constellation to 300 satellites for Starlink on orbit, extending SpaceX’s lead as the largest commercial satellite operator in the world. SpaceX did something a little different with this Starlink mission, deploying them from the launch vehicle much earlier in the mission, after just one burn of the rocket’s second stage, into an elliptical orbit from which they’ll use their thrusters to climb to their target orbit around Earth.

This is going to be the new transportation way by the next five years? What do you think about this? Check more about this app in this article.

Writing Job Descriptions With Impact – Here Is How

The majority of job ads these days bore with uninspiring standard jargon that makes readers yawn, rather than triggering a flood of applications. As a result, great recruiting potential is being wasted. Here is how you can write job ads that are guaranteed to grab people’s attention and will appeal to the candidates you want.

Job ads are one of the most important tools in e-Recruiting. According to Statista, 34 percent of all new hires are found through online job portals, and roughly 30 percent through company websites. Despite these strong numbers, many companies do away with standard wording in their job ads. That’s a mistake!

Personio Munich Tech Job Fair Spring 2020 3

Writing Job Ads: It’s an HR Responsibility

The writing of job ads is an art in itself. They have to be catchy, fit the company, appeal to the right target audience and must not violate any laws. However, most advertisements are based on a template that was set up years ago and only requires the position title, job responsibilities and requirements to be entered. Often, HR will provide a template, and the relevant department enters the description, which is then published without being further reviewed.

This is a poor practice that can lead to having to sort through multiple applicants that have reacted to your vaguely worded ad but are not suitable.

Writing Job Ads: Five Easy Tricks

What can you do to make your job ad stand out from the crowd and attract qualified, suitable applicants? The following tips will help:

1. Concise Job Title

The job title is critical for potential applicants to find your advertisement using search engines and on online job portals. Formulate a title, 10 to 80 characters in length, and use common position titles that are as accurate as possible. Ask yourself: Which term would an applicant I want to appeal to enter in a search field?

For example: If an “Online Marketing Manager” is hired to primarily look after social media profiles, would “Social Media Manager” not be more suitable as a title? Is “Inside Sales Manager” actually a known term to my target audience, or would “Sales Manager (Back Office)”  be better? Nobody searches the internet for “Sales Ninja” or “Customer Guru.” These titles may sound creative – but wouldn’t job hunters much rather search along the lines of “call centre/customer service employee”?

Important: We are talking here about the job title, not the job description itself. In the description, in contrast, you can and should be creative to make an impact. The “Sales Ninja” or “Customer Guru” for example may appear in the first paragraph as you describe your dream candidate. A good example of this can be found on the career page of video production firm Mynd. While they kept the job titles concise, the wording in the first paragraphs is more abstract and customised, and it provides a sense of the company’s culture.

Personio Munich Tech Job Fair Spring 2020 4

2. An Attention-Grabbing First Paragraph

The first paragraph decides whether the job seeker will continue to read or click the “Back” button to move on to the next ad. So, pay particular attention to this paragraph when writing your ad.

Sentences like “We are looking to fill the position of…” or the usual standard company description will not spark interest. Instead, use this space to state the strongest and most interesting arguments that speak for your company and this position. Think about what points would grab the attention of your ideal applicant.

3. Complete And Accurate Job Description

Be honest and concrete as you describe the responsibilities of the position. Applicants should get a clear picture of what awaits them, what their typical workday would look like, whether they are required to travel, can organise their work independently, or are expected to fulfil set quotas. If their work largely consists of routine duties, don’t promise “exciting and varied” tasks or a “high level of own responsibility.”

State the scope of their authority and responsibilities, particularly with executive positions. In which areas will the candidates have decision-making authority? Who will be reporting to them? Is the responsibility for sales and/or personnel part of the position?

A perceived 99 per cent of all job ads are missing the information where a position is actually located in the company organisation, and what the team and management structure looks like.

These aspects are extremely important, especially to young, qualified Gen-Y applicants. They want to know: Will they just be a small cog in a big wheel of teams and have to follow the “chain of command”? Can they work with other teams, will they have contact with management and be able to contribute their ideas? Everyone has “flat hierarchies,” it seems. Describe these points concretely to appeal to applicants who will feel comfortable in your organisation and have the right expectations.

4. Realistic Job Requirements

List the required skills, training qualifications, certifications and minimum job experience. Rather than saying “initial” or “several years of” experience, state your requirements in the job ad more concretely, e.g. “minimum one year” or “three to five years.”

Don’t forget to mention qualifications that are desirable but not necessarily crucial (i.e. nice to have). Make a clear distinction between these and your minimum requirements. The term “ideally” is not necessarily an elegant way to say it – but is understood by applicants.

Be realistic. There is no such thing as a “young and dynamic team player with at least 20 years of experience.” Particularly when using templates, you should review the job requirements for each position. Does the candidate really need to have foreign language skills? Is experience with a specific software a must? Or could the new hire also be trained to use it? Does it really need to be said in every job description that the candidate should be a “team player” and “able to work under pressure”?

Make it clear which qualifications you expect, and who should not apply – but without scaring off suitable candidates by putting too much emphasis on your dream image. The basis for a good requirement profile is that an in-depth conversation takes place between the relevant department that hires and HR.

5. Providing A Sense If The Company Culture

Your company culture should be reflected in all areas of the job ad – from content through to wording. A description of your company, the (additional) benefits that are offered to employees, as well as an outlook on future development opportunities are a must in every job ad. The purpose here is much more than just information.

Applicants shall be enabled to assess whether they can identify with your business, can see themselves in it and would feel comfortable. Does it feel like a competitive environment or more like a family? Do your company value sustainability and social responsibility? Is it family-friendly? Will the employee be fostered and given room to develop?

Use the requirement profile to sift out unqualified applicants. If you then also convey an attractive and authentic reflection of your company, you will be appealing to exactly those applicants that will fit your organisation and want to stay with you long-term. You will distinguish yourself from the competition and give applicants reasons to choose you over others.

Other Important Aspects When Writing A Job Ad

Completeness: Be sure to cover all the required information in your job ad. Sounds trivial, but given the amount of details, it is easy to overlook something.

Salary: True to the motto “One doesn’t talk about money,” the job ads of German companies rarely contain salary details. However, in many other countries, it is common to at least state a salary range. Think about whether you want to make use of this feature and stand out from the crowd this way. This would also help you avoid spending unnecessary resources and time on applicants who have salary expectations beyond your budget.

Professional perspectives: Don’t just put requirements on your applicants. Offer them an outlook, too – on learning potential. Which skills will they gain through the position? What career perspectives can they expect in the long term? This will give applicants an even more accurate picture of the position. And you will win by getting more suitable candidates because you will primarily attract people who have the desire to tap exactly this learning potential.

Discriminatory wording: According to the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG), job postings must never make reference to gender, race or ethnic background, religion or ideology, disability, age or sexual identity. At least when these criteria are not explicitly required to carry out the activity. This goes a lot further than just the use of gender-neutral forms with job titles, such as the ever-present “(m/f)”. For example, you can put “fluent German” as a requirement, but not “native German language skills.”

Nowadays, many companies even have their job advertisements written by external copywriters. If you have a hard time creating succinct and catchy job descriptions, why not get help.

Nothing But Outstanding Job Ads!

You want to have qualified employees who inspire and stand out from the crowd? Then your job ads should do the same. Job ads are the first form of contact with your company for many potential candidates. They determine whether the right or the wrong people will apply (or even no one at all). Don’t think of writing job ads as just another routine task, and don’t leave your departments alone with it.

Original post via Nestlé.

Vevey, Switzerland, Jan 16, 2020

Nestlé today announced that it will invest up to CHF 2 billion to lead the shift from virgin plastics to food-grade recycled plastics and to accelerate the development of innovative sustainable packaging solutions.

Building on its 2018 commitment to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025, Nestlé will reduce its use of virgin plastics by one third in the same period whilst working with others to advance the circular economy and endeavor to clean up plastic waste from oceans, lakes and rivers.

Food quality and safety are paramount, and packaging plays a major role in assuring this. Most plastics are difficult to recycle for food packaging, leading to a limited supply of food-grade recycled plastics. To create a market, Nestlé is therefore committed to sourcing up to 2 million metric tons of food-grade recycled plastics and allocating more than CHF 1.5 billion to pay a premium for these materials between now and 2025. Nestlé will seek operational efficiencies to keep this initiative earnings neutral.

Packaging innovation, including new materials, refill systems and recycling solutions, is another key challenge on the path towards a waste-free future. In addition to its significant inhouse research through the Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences, the company will launch a CHF 250 million sustainable packaging venture fund to invest in start-up companies that focus on these areas.
