Having people from many different countries in one team is a great way to learn more about other cultures and to have a pool of knowledge but managing different requirements and expectations is a lot more complex than many HR managers expect.
Also, attracting foreign talent & supporting a location change across borders can be challenging for all people involved and take up a lot of time at work.
Join us at wework Potsdamer Platz on November 20th to learn about the synergies and challenges that come with diversifying a team, share your knowledge and discuss with us.

David has been working with talent attraction at Berlin Partner for 5 years. He is an expert in long-term strategic talent attraction, working with HR and labour market policy, business development, marketing Berlin startups, immigration and onboarding aspects.
Matthias started his recruitment career in 2008 where he specialized for the last 5 years in Talent Acquisition for Tech Talents in fast scaling companies in Berlin. By joining Zalando in 2016, he had the chance to compete in the global "war of talent" and facilitates community-building activities like the TA Lab in Berlin.
About the Community: As talent is harder to come by these days and the old tricks do not work as well on young, skilful job seekers, Talent Acquisition experts are seeking to change recruitment. Transforming HR is no simple task and even though interesting new approaches are being tested with great success, every individual company must find their own solution. This monthly meetup of HR and Recruiting experts exists to discuss challenges, present solutions & pilot projects and spread new ideas in Talent Acquisition and Management.
This expert group meets every 3rd Tuesday of the month in WeWork Potsdamer Platz.
