HR Wachstumsstrategie bei P3

  • The primary purpose of this thesis is to investigate and evaluate the current candidate experience of applicants and new employees at P3 Systems, in order to derive recommendations for the ongoing recruiting and onboarding processes. Therefore, the section on the candidate journey from the moment of the first direct contact, namely the face-to-face interview, up to and including the first 90 days in the company, has been highlighted. The latter will be referred to as onboarding phase. P3 Systems is one of 12 subsidiaries of the internationally operating P3 Group. Since 2006, it has specialized in automatic and manual testing of electric and electronic systems and their components. Due to the continuous increase in the number of employees, as well as the expectation of further growth, revising the current procedures is desirable to ensure future competitiveness. Data for this study was gathered with the help of theoretical models provided by findings in the customer experience management field, as well as from various surveys carried out over the last year. Using these insights, a first draft implementing a candidate experience management within the named company, has been drawn up. Furthermore, two internal surveys have been conducted to explore the candidates’ perspectives. These focused especially on the key touchpoints for P3Systems along the candidate journey. For this objective, 62 applicants, who already had participated in a face-to-face interview, but had not yet been informed about the outcome, were selected. They were invited to fill out an online questionnaire dealing with the experiences within the context of those interviews. Concurrently, 64 employees of P3 Systems were asked to share their impressions regarding their onboarding program. The results revealed areas of potential optimization, e.g. concerning the time - to - respond to candidates, the content design of the interviews, and the social and professional integration of new employees. Towards the end of this thesis, recommended courses of actions were suggested to improve the current candidate experience. In conclusion, the boundaries and shortcomings of this thesis were indicated.
