#SOSUDE THEME & AGENDA

EXPLORING NEW FRONTIERS FOR TALENT SOURCING

What frontiers of sourcing remain to be explored? How will advances in technology like machine learning and artificial intelligence affect sourcing? What does the future of talent sourcing hold? Where to from here?

At #SOSUDE we will set our gaze on the whole talent sourcing ecosystem with a particular focus on the issues and challenges faced by sourcing leaders and practitioners in Germany and the DACH region. We will set our eyes on emerging trends, current best-practices and the road ahead for sourcing.  We will look at new tools and technologies, techniques and best-practices, and will decipher the ever changing behavior of talent. Delegates will develop a big-picture view of talent acquisition and the tactical nous required to be an agent of change.

Once again we will cover all aspects of sourcing in a way that #sosude is well known for – an uncompromising dissection and analysis of all things sourcing in Germany.

UNSER RECRUITING IST TRAUMATISIERT! WARUM WIR DEN MENSCHEN NEU ENTDECKEN MÜSSEN

LANGUAGE : GERMAN

HENRIK ZABOROWSKI //
Durch die Digitalisierung scheinen tools und Techniken unseren Recruitingalltag immer mehr zu bestimmen. Software unterstützt das Sourcing, Algorithmen empfehlen die passenden Kandidaten und geben Tipps für die perfekte Ansprache. Was vergessen wird: Am Ende werden Entscheidungen immer noch von zwei Menschen getroffen. Und die haben in der Regel noch ein altes, falsches Mindset. Solange wir das nicht ändern, hilft uns auch die beste Software nicht weiter. Der Schlüssel für ein erfolgreiches Recruiting liegt beim Menschen – die Digitalisierung kann uns nur unterstützen. Ich erkläre Ihnen, warum.

WIE SIEHT ES MIT DEM RECHTLICHEN RAHMEN IM SOURCING AUS?  

LANGUAGE : GERMAN

NINA DIERCKS // ANWALTSKANZLEI DIERCKS
Grundsätzlich weiß jeder, dass auch das Sourcing in einen rechtlichen Rahmen gebettet ist. Man munkelt es ginge um Wettbewerbsrecht und Datenschutz. Und tatsächlich, genau darum geht es. Aber gerade das Datenschutzrecht wird immer noch als das ungeliebte Stiefkind gesehen, was schlicht die glänzenden technologischen Möglichkeiten beeinträchtigt. Diese Haltung können Unternehmen beibehalten, aber wird sehr riskant. Denn ab Mai 2018 entfaltet die Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO) innerhalb der EU ihre rechtliche Wirkung. Und mit der DSGVO steigen die möglichen Bußgelder massiv, nämlich auf bis zu 10 bzw. 20 Millionen EUR – je nach Art des Datenschutzverstoßes – pro Datenschutzverstoß. In Folge dessen ist jetzt, unabhängig davon, welche Meinung Sie selbst zum Thema Datenschutz vertreten, die Zeit, sich mit dem rechtlichen Rahmen des Sourcing intensiv auseinanderzusetzen.

Rechtsanwältin Nina Diercks wird ebenso praxisnah wie lösungsorientiert durch die komplexe Materien führen.

HOW TO ACCELERATE SOURCING BY HARNESSING YOUR CORPORATE CULTURE

LANGUAGE : GERMAN

ROBINDRO ULLAH //

One way of looking at Sourcing is the selling of a product to someone who doesn’t know that he wants it. But how can you manage this task? Hint: it is not passion nor salary nor things most companies invest on (Work-Life-Balance, Responsibility, etc.).  It is your very core within the company called  ‘Culture’ – which if integrated into sourcing approaches will boost candidate response rate.

In this session Robindro will have a look at why culture matters in sourcing and how to harness it to assist in sourcing. This session is beyond tools and strategies, it’s at the core of sourcing – culture maximisation.
