More than talent search: the right candidates and recruitment advice from onlyfy TalentService

Situation & challenges

k+k information services GmbH (kuk-is) is a family-run company that understands that a good cultural fit between employees and companies is becoming increasingly important in today’s working world. “Our aim is to offer our employees a great place to work in a fantastic company culture,” explains Daniela Gudlin, strategic member of the management team and head of HR at kuk-is.

But kuk-is – a mid-sized company in the information and data management field with a focus on digitalisation and AI – is still faced with the challenge that key positions are becoming increasingly difficult to fill.

To achieve success in this challenging situation in the job market, an intelligent combination of active and passive recruiting methods is needed. Gudlin also emphasises this: “Since 2020, kuk-is has increasingly carried out active sourcing using external support in order to fill demanding positions quickly with the most suitable candidates.“

The IT company sought a compatible partner to help it in its talent search. kuk-is found what it was looking for in onlyfy TalentService by XING, whose recruitment experts have taken over the talent search.


The solution – onlyfy

“We launched the partnership with two critical positions: software developer and software architect,” explains Gudlin, reflecting on the successful start of the collaboration with onlyfy. “We filled both positions in our first project with highly suitable candidates,” says the kuk-is head of HR.

kuk-is was particularly impressed with the approach taken by onlyfy TalentService by XING. “The expert team understood exactly which aspects were important to us and placed particular focus on our corporate values and culture throughout the recruitment process. As a result, the quality of the suggested candidates jumped significantly for us,” says Gudlin.

In addition to handling the project with the utmost professionalism – including a detailed briefing, strict adherence to deadlines and close, reliable communication – kuk-is was especially impressed with the advisory role that the TalentService took on in addition to active sourcing.
