Straight up, vertically, it is more than four metres. And getting up there needs a lot of application, strength and skill. There are no aids: no rope, no net – just your own muscles and the steep wall with a few misshapen holds sticking out in different colours. The yellow ones are easier than the green. And the red ones more difficult. It doesn’t matter, because this is not about relaxation, but a new trend: bouldering. Or scrambling. And we’re also talking about Linda Helber, who, as an HR employee, knows how and where each person can best make it to the top.
If you are a personnel officer like Linda Helber in a company as big as Bertrandt, you know a lot about making an ascent: the routes and qualities you need to safely reach a high-up goal.
After all, every career is like a project that is never quite finished. You are always learning more, developing further, gaining experience. In bouldering, a sport that Linda Helber discovered for herself some time ago, there are many parallels with work. It is helpful not to let the route and the goal out of sight and to take on every challenge.
Personnel plays an important role in shaping the future of a company, because the new employees are the ones who are going to make their mark on the firm. That is why the task of personnel acquisition is the resolute and goal-oriented implementation of recruitment measures. “It starts in personnel marketing, at universities, for example, or at applicant days, includes applicant selection through personal interviews in conjunction with the specialist areas and runs all the way to induction events for new employees.”
The most important things for Linda Helber in all this are the opportunity to work independently and responsibly, team harmony and the good general working atmosphere in general at the company. “Taking on the tasks of a personnel officer at Bertrandt is the logical step into the future for me. And I am certain that we, as a team, are capable of mastering every challenge.”
