Promerit and SmartRecruiters bring the talent acquisition revolution to Germany

Berlin, 29.06.2017 – Business transformation and HR management consulting firm Promerit concludes an exclusive partnership with software provider SmartRecruiters.

Within just a short space of time, SmartRecruiters has been able to establish itself in the US as an innovative HR software solution for recruiting and talent acquisition. Now the DACH market will also be able to benefit from the cutting-edge digital talent acquisition platform. To this end, SmartRecruiters is entering into a strategic partnership with HR and business transformation consulting firm Promerit for talent acquisition in the German-speaking region of Europe.

The economic forecast for Germany was raised just last week. The economy is thriving. At the same time, competition for talented individuals is becoming increasingly fierce. To be successful, companies need to master numerous new skills that they are unable to develop entirely with their existing workforce. External access to target groups and hence an effective recruiting toolbox are increasingly becoming mission-critical, meaning that the demand for efficient, transparent and scalable recruiting management is also increasing. This is precisely the focus of the new partnership between the US HR-tech company and the German transformation consulting firm. Together they are helping companies to digitise and professionalise their talent acquisition processes.

Both companies share a holistic approach to talent acquisition: in Promerit’s case this applies to its consulting services, which range from the translation of the corporate strategy to the right personnel recruitment strategy, processes and concepts, as well as system introduction and use. With respect to SmartRecruiters, the same can be said of its software, which combines all steps in the talent acquisition and selection process in a user-friendly platform.

For its market entry, SmartRecruiters is not only launching a German-language platform specifically optimised for the local market but is also meeting the strictest security standards according to EU data protection guidelines by moving its servers to Frankfurt am Main.

“In Promerit, we have gained a partner that has been helping to shape the new world of work for more than 15 years and has substantial expertise in the areas of system implementation and integration as well as in the development of effective talent acquisition and talent and leadership approaches. We are looking forward to bringing our solution to Germany together with Promerit’s great team of experts," says Michael Lazik, General Manager (DACH) at SmartRecruiters. Andreas Schultejans, partner at Promerit, adds: “We are monitoring the market for HCM solutions very intensively and are looking for systems that will help advance HR and companies. We consider SmartRecruiters to be a collaborative and intuitive tool that combines the reach of a global platform with the comprehensibility of a German-language, local software solution. The team has consistently implemented new approaches in recruiting. This is demonstrated not least by functionalities, which create transparency and support collaborative work, and by effective integration scenarios that are easy to implement. We were also impressed by the Field Recruiting app, which allows recruiters to upload profiles directly to the system from anywhere, for example at trade fairs or similar events.”
