What movie title best describes 2017 for you?

Your person of the year?
Your favorite album from 2017?
What are you most proud of this year?
… that I managed to launch Germany’s first HR trend magazine called hr|tomorrow. Which only deals with future hr topics referring real-world trends from different industries.
What HR tool or trend disappointed you the most in 2017?
I think it was virtual reality. Actually, it’s the fact that very often HR departments discover new fancy technology and implement the old stuff to the new environment without thinking. Hence, the new potential often has not been utilized. It’s like driving a race car only in areas with maximum speed limit.
And what tool or trend really did live up to the hype?
From my point of view, it was Sourcing. It started as a hype and ended up to become a regular additional recruiting channel within lots of companies.

What will be the “next big thing” in Recruiting?
Augmented Recruiting: concepts of strong human/ algorithm combinations where human and robot are accelerating each other. It’s a world where recruiters get a small mobile device, a bigger mobile device and an artificial recruiting companion who knows best to support his senior manager on their first day at work.
