The job market is a major challenge for the economy: The baby boomers are retiring from the workforce, specialists are increasingly hard to come by, and companies compete on an international level as they search for qualified employees. This is a trend that HR departments expect to intensify.
And that is the reason why employer branding and recruiting have long been among the top strategic corporate issues: 93% of all employers are hiring new employees, but a declining number of them believe they will find the right candidates for the positions to be filled. The highest number of hires worldwide is planned in engineering, at 57 percent. That makes it all the more important to approach this target group where its members are located – and where they are open to discussions. Because experience shows: A leisurely technical discussion can turn into successful recruitment in an instant.
automatica features a holistic representation of your company – a combination of products, brands, personal meetings, and plenty of event character. In addition, the world’s leading exhibition offers you numerous opportunities to put your company in the right light for attracting engineers looking for career opportunities. Too much effort? Think again. Our modular concept is designed to facilitate your entire experience. To make sure your presentation at career now is straightforward – even with what little time is left now. By the way: Individual bookings start at EUR 190, or benefit from our attractive all-inclusive packages starting at EUR 2,495.
