Elon Musk famously said: “If something is important enough you should try, even if the probable outcome is failure.” In today’s VUCA world, there are hardly any guarantees anymore. Just as Whatsapp and other messaging services have bitten out billions from large established Telecom companies’ revenues, established businesses and sure-fire branches are under threat every day. If it’s not the curly haired guys in a garage, it may be an advertising fiasco, a new regulation, changing technologies, and even ageing population.

A podcast interview with Bastian Unterberg
What if you could solve your complex challenges by asking the top talents from all around the globe to help you out? You can! It took a couple of years before the market was ready to embrace Crowdstorm as a concept and service, but it was worth the wait and patience for Founder Bastian Unterberg.
As a young design student at one of Germany’s top Universities, Bastian Unterberg found himself contemplating his career options. Looking at his peers, top creative young talents ending up in rigid organisations with hierarchies, he understood that he imagines his life differently. He was dreaming of a place where young creative can be mobilised for exciting projects for them to truly unleash their talent and accelerate innovation. At the time such a place didn’t exist, so he went ahead and created jovoto.com in 2006. To date they have solved over 400 challenges with a community of 80.000 creative professionals from non-profit campaigns to physical spaces, packaging or service design.
Interview series with candidate experience pioneer Gerry Crispin (part 1 – the past of the candidate experience)
2015 is proclaimed as “the year of the candidates”. Skills shortage and the changing job market forces corporations to compete for qualified employees. To be able to survive in the war for talents companies have to improve their recruiting process and treat their candidates in a way that they would want to reapply and share a positive experience. One of the “founding fathers” of Candidate Experience (CE) is HR practitioner, blogger, author and general networker Gerry Crispin. He will be present to speak on this subject at this year’s HRM Expo | Zukunft Personal, opening the theme day “Candidate Experience” on Wednesday, 16 September 2015. Co-organizer Wolfgang Brickwedde (ICR) interviewed him about the past, presence and future of CE. We start this video interview series with Gerry’s view on the past. >>MORE>>
