Results of the Eblinger & Partner Executive Search "HR Barometer" for the 1st half of 2024

With your support as an HR expert, we conducted a survey - together with our IIC Partners colleagues from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Switzerland and Germany - to obtain an assessment of current demand and changes in the HR industry.

The survey was divided into four subject areas:
- Expectations
- HR core topics
- Personnel requirements forecast
- Breakdown of personnel requirements into different areas

The expectations for the first half of 2024 do not deviate from the previous situation for half of the respondents, while 47.7% expect the current situation to remain the same. 44% even expect the situation to worsen compared to the November/December 2023 survey period.

The core HR topics for the new half year are diverse. 49.5% are focusing on recruiting and filling difficult positions. Employer branding and personnel development will be among the core HR topics for 44% of respondents.  Dealing with part-time work, flexible working hours, 4-day week, home office and work-life balance are important for 33.9% of respondents. 34.9% will deal with tools/technologies and AI, 29.4% will have more to do with ESG/Sustainability/Diversity & Inclusion. 19.3% state that they will have to deal with staff reductions and cost savings.

For the majority, namely 51.4%, the need for personnel is expected to remain the same, 26.6% see an increasing need for personnel in their companies, 22% expect a decreasing need for personnel. It turns out that sales has the highest demand at 35.8%, followed by IT at 30.3%.

Thank you for your support! The jointly generated survey results provide an important insight into expectations and priorities in the first half of 2024.

Eblinger & Partner annual conference 2024

We experienced a content-rich annual conference at our Eblinger & Partner office at Weihburggasse 9, 1010 Vienna!

A big thank you goes to our management, who gave a detailed review of the past year and an outlook on developments in 2024, as well as to our highly committed employees, who contributed to this successful conference with specially prepared contributions!

In addition to a well-founded insight and outlook on our performance, "Figures, data, facts", by Charlotte Eblinger-Mitterlechner and Florens Eblinger. Katharina Joana Ferner gave us an overview of the social media statistics, including content ideas for future projects.

As "Diversity & Inclusion" is a lived topic at Eblinger & Partner, Viktoria Kaufmann presented newly implemented strategies in the recruiting process, Ute Maria Gabriel explained age discrimination and Vesna Nakic showed new ways of dealing with gender-conform language.

The fun and active part of the conference was provided by a Vienna-loving employee who once again sent us through the city center with a creatively devised puzzle rally, taking us to places and corners with a historical background that are rarely consciously noticed in everyday life.

Many thanks to our entire team for the inspiring discussions and lively teamwork!
