Finding the Best Talents


„Human communities depend upon a diversity of talent, not a singular conception of ability.“
Sir Ken Robinson



The university workplace reflects an increasingly diverse and global society. Science and research institutions in Germany are recruiting talent not only domestically but also globally. As such, it is central to the success of these science and research institutions to find and support the best talents. Regardless, the challenge remains: how to select personnel so that employees with diverse cultural, personal and professional backgrounds can work together effectively?

In this workshop, we will communicate how universities can benefit from the latest research in diversity and multiculturalism in personnel and staff selection.

Your take away

  • You will receive a compact overview of the current scientific evidence on the success factors of recruitment, selection and retention of talent. 
  • You will discuss the practical implementation of established selection and recruiting methods as it applies to your own examples. 
  • You will learn about best practice examples of recruitment and retention of heterogeneous and diverse talents.


We will present the latest research results about recruiting, selecting, and engaging talent. We address questions, such as what makes your unit attractive to diverse talent, how to recruit and select the best employees for your unit and how you can create and maintain a productive work climate in a diverse team.
