Hello there,

In my last blog post, I told you all about TalentHub, which is a network program that makes it easier for the Lufthansa Group to stay in touch with external Talents (such as former interns). TalentHub specifically includes participants with so-called “bottleneck profiles” – meaning they come from professional areas where open job positions are not easily filled through our regular recruiting channels such as Be-Lufthansa.com.

It is very important to us that we can offer Talents a wide range of opportunities to discover more about career options and topics within the Lufthansa Group. For example, we do this by way of a regular newsletter to the Talents or the opportunity to browse through our employee magazine “ONE” online.

Of course, events are also essential for enabling personal exchange and getting acquainted. The Talents and we (we being the Talent managers and recruiters from different areas of the Lufthansa Group) are able to get to know each other better and explore the extent to which future cooperation is of interest.

Just such a TalentHub event took place at the end of May. We had invited a specific group of TalentHub participants, the so-called “Movers & Shakers”. These are Talents who either have gained several years of experience abroad or have convinced us through their entrepreneurial skills or as lateral thinkers, for example during their internship or application process. The participants spent one day at the Lufthansa Aviation Center in Frankfurt. After a brief introduction, some general information about TalentHub was given and then my colleague Fabian took over for the next two hours. Fabian works at the Lufthansa Group CAMPUS, which, in addition to internal seminars and further education courses, is also responsible for the topic “Further development of Lufthansa’s company culture”. During this workshop, it was really exciting to learn more from the participating Talents: about how they perceive Lufthansa culture and what their ideas and suggestions are on how the Lufthansa Group should continue its well-positioned course in the future.

The participants of the TalentHub event at the end of May

After having lunch together with plenty of time to get to know each other better, we continued with a participant feedback round focused on their impressions of TalentHub. For us as program managers, it was very helpful to receive direct feedback from the Talents about our offerings and our communication. We are very happy that we are definitely on the right track with TalentHub.

Afterwards, the participants left the Lufthansa Aviation Center to enter the world of flight! In the Lufthansa Technik hangar, the participants inspected one of our aircrafts and in the Lufthansa Aviation Training Center they learned all about pilot and flight attendant training.

In the late afternoon, our day together came to an end. We received a lot of interesting inspiration from the Talents and were very glad to have gotten to know them all personally!

There was hard work …

 

… but there was no lack of fun!

 

Opportunities to network during the breaks

And happily, after the event is before the event: At the end of June, Lufthansa Cargo is organizing an event specifically for those TalentHub participants with a focus on logistics. Further events are planned for the summer and autumn.

I’ll keep you updated!

Best regards,
Julia
