Chatbots, Video Recruiting und mobile Kommunikationskanäle: Die Würth Industrie Service im Spannungsfeld zwischen digitalen Akquisewege und der Unternehmensphilosophie „Der Mensch steht im Mittelpunkt“

  • This bachelor thesis with the title Chatbots, Video Recruiting and Mobile Communication Channels: Würth Industrie Service in the field of tension between digital acquisition channels and the company philosophy ‘People are the center of attention’ deals with the implementation of digital personnel acquisition channels as well as with the conflict between digitalization and the focus on people. In particular, the communication between applicants and personnel acquisition is addressed. Digitalization has been developing at a high speed and influences the entire working and living environment. This increasing process of change is also related to the job market and the communication process. Communication has changed in recent years and still does. Instead of the previous, purely functional exchange of information in text form, visual language is becoming increasingly important. Furthermore, the younger generation is used to speed and a quick reaction to messages through social media. In addition to the change of traditional communication and the trend towards visual language, it must be concerned that human resources is still a people business. Digital processes can cause the actual focus on people to be lost. Based on a qualitative research approach and the expert interview, three employees of Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co KG and a service provider are interviewed about digital instruments and the risk of losing the focus on people through digital processes in personnel acquisition. With the help of the qualitative content analysis according to Mayring, it clearly shows how important personal contact with the applicant is in the selection process. Moreover, the personal fit of the candidate with the position and with the company can only be checked in a personal interview by HR Business Partner. Nevertheless, the introduction of a digital tool in the selection process for a pre-selection at Würth Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG is important in order to relieve the HR Business Partners now and in the future when the number of incoming applications and hiring figures are increasing. The recommendation to introduce video interviews rather than implementing WhatsApp and Chatbots at Würth Industrie Service GmbH at this point is based on the theoretical principles and the expert interviews.
