Nowadays, most professional service firms are experiencing difficulties in recruiting and retaining their employees. In today’s competitive hiring landscape, the idea of a “job for life” is becoming less and less common, especially among young professionals. This trend, far from improving, has even accelerated by the social changes brought about i.a. by the pandemic.
With ETL GLOBAL continuing to grow at impressive speed, quite some efforts are taken on the recruitment side, both at the ETL GLOBAL headquarters and ETL GLOBAL country holdings, but also on local level. Finding and motivating skilled personnel has become one of the most important matters for all. Check out ETL GLOBAL’s new Human Resources page as well as regional hubs to check on career opportunities, for example in the Netherlands, Spain or the Czech Republic.
Likewise, all Members of the ETL GLOBAL network are committed to keep and retain their talents. New ideas for corporate and mental health programmes, incentivation and job satisfaction schemes are popping up all across the globe:
At ETL GLOBAL Spain, the colleagues believe in the power of sports for teambuilding and employee well-being. With the hashtag #ETLSportVibes they encourage their teams to participate in different activities. Their most recent iniciative was a ski day experience in the Pyrenees mountains, full of laughter and positive energy.
An easy and almost natural possibility within an international network is to give colleagues the chance to work abroad. One recent example is presented in this interview (in German language) featuring Tobias Kromm of Pelka, ETL GLOBAL Member in Germany, who had the opportunity to work at EJASO ETL GLOBAL in Valencia, Spain.
At ETL Nederland, they recognise the importance of achieving a good work-life balance for employee satisfaction, productivity, and overall well-being. The company culture emphasises the need to make overtime an exception rather than a norm.
ETL GLOBAL UK recognises the importance of employee satisfaction and offers interesting benefits to its employees and partners. These benefits include employee wellness programs, flexible working arrangements, and opportunities for career growth and development. At Gerald Edelman they provide with employee retention concepts for companies for them to achieve a healthy work environment.
Many initiatives seem to be perceived well by the current workforce within ETL GLOBAL:
