An interesting question for HR decision-makers as well as for candidates is if the growing complexity in work environment will favor generalists or specialists? On the one side, the growing complexity is in the favor of the specialist. On the other side, knowledge has very fast decreasing value which can set the specialist in a situation in which he cannot acquire knowledge fast enough.

What is Work-Life Balance? Everyone knows this expression and the majority believes that Work-Life Balance is a balance between work and private life. Although, if we think deeper about it, do we take enough time for ourselves so that we can give our maximum while working 100%?

The statistics show completely different results as losing control over our balance can lead to serious issues. Let's be honest: it is not easy to admit to your line manager that you currently have too much of work. It is crucial, though, to be honest and talk openly if something is not alright. This topic is important, and you are not alone in it.

Many companies have a medium to high turnover rate. Obviously, there are many reasons for this. However, one reason is that good employees are not valued enough.
Many management theories suggest models, which help companies to improve the performance of their employees. However, employees who do already perform at their highest are many times not addressed.
One might claim that it is not important to make any effort in this direction, because why should a company try to improve employees who are already working perfectly.
Nevertheless, this is a very short-term view. As many companies are looking for exceptional employees, there is a huge demand on the job market for them.

Applying for a job always starts with submitting the documents to prove our match for the role. While such documents as CV and Diploma are obvious, many candidates remain unsure if the cover letter should also be attached. The answer is YES.

It also makes it clear for the recruiter that you want this job, so please take your time to write a personalized motivation letter.
