OUR HR WORKSHOPS

Anna Ott – HR Consultant

Equality Driven Employer Branding

In this workshop, we will discuss how we can max out our talent pools by not only hiring the standard “white male” but enlarge our talent spectrum by equally including all talents. How do we reach them, which messages and channels are important? How do we maintain authenticity and don’t end up accidentally “pinkwashing” our employer brand? How can we make sure that not only HR but also all hiring managers understand the power of diverse hiring? We will assess our current approaches, discuss pioneers and zero-budget approaches to find ways of limiting biases in our hiring approaches. This is an interactive session, so bring questions, opinions, thoughts and examples so we can make the most out of this group effort!” 

Please note: The “Professional HR Workshop” ticket is mandatory for this workshop.

Fostering Diversity in the Gaming Industry – A Case Study

Diversity in the gaming industry is a much-discussed issue. Yet many organizations still struggle to implement the right instruments to foster diversity. In this workshop, we will be looking at the relevance of diversity, where the gaming industry currently stands, and how we at Wooga try to drive a more diverse workforce. In interactive breakouts, we will identify gaps and how companies can learn from each other.

Please note: This Workshop is included in the “professional conference” ticket
