The first job is a huge step. Therefore, you want to make an informed decision considering various offers. In the first phase of recruitment process, numerous graduates ask themselves: “What would be important for me at my future job?” You may now find the answer thanks to the Dream Job Factory – an innovative concept of SIX.
The Dream Job Factory is a digital platform, where interested talents can configure their dream job and learn more about themselves on a tablet. They can select their priorities with regard to soft skills, company values, team competencies, working models and employee benefits. As a result, a suitable employer profile is created with additional personal information. “The Dream Job Factory allows us to reach talents and understand their motivations. Therefore, we continually evaluate our offer and are able to meet the needs of young target groups,” says Arzu Güzelgün, Senior HR Business Partner at SIX. “In addition, we position SIX as a prospective employer by showing talents what vacancies at SIX would suit them.”
The Dream Job Factory was already presented to public. It was launched at the end of March during the F10 Hackathon, where 140 talents faced the total of five challenges within 48 hours. A large number of people attended the event, and many hackers wanted to configure their dream job, one of them being Jeniffer Lima Graf, a student at the EPFL. “I think the Dream Job Factory is really cool, because I need to think what is truly crucial to me. So, I found out I value teamwork and flexibility much more than for example remuneration. However, benefits such as meal discounts are still important.” Over 90 Hackathon participants made use of the Dream Job Factory. The SIX team has collected essential insights and gained more understanding of young talents. “The Dream Job Factory will continue to be introduced to other target groups. We are convinced this concept will make us stand out and allow us to position ourselves as an attractive employer,” says Isabelle Lacheze, Senior Specialist People Development.
