Kärcher achieved an annual turnover [revenue] of 2.12 billion Euros, the highest in its history. It was the latest landmark in the company’s continuing transformation from a mid-sized to a global company. And just as its revenue continues to grow, so does its requirement to hire and develop the best.
“There is a long-standing tradition of employee and managerial development at Kärcher, reflected not only in the number of days spent in training, but also in our high expectations of what it should deliver,” says Carmen Kiesele, HR Specialist and Project Manager.
She explains, “We were looking for suitable talent assessment solutions that would enable us to manage our talent more efficiently globally, while maintaining the quality of our personnel selection and development.
We needed to be able to make objective, fair and informed decisions about who we hired and developed in a national and international context. The assessments we used had to be scientifically robust and available online in as many languages as possible, backed up by national and international groups.”
