Benefit Golf Tournament

Yesterday I had the honor to participate in the annual charity golf tournament, the FC Fairways of our 1st FC Cologne. It was a pleasure to share the green with FC legends, like Karl-Heinz Thielen and Jonas Hector and other great personalities! But more importantly, we really made a difference because, as every year, the game is played for a good cause and considerable sums are raised for the FC Foundation. Passionate soccer and Cologne tradition, that's what our FC embodies, while at the sam…

Benefits in companies: how unrealistic do you want it to get?

It's time for an unpopular opinion: We are in an era of over-glorification of employee benefits, which in many cases are simply unrealistic. The picture painted on social media and elsewhere gives a distorted perception of what "normal" companies can and should actually offer. Yes, we live in an employee market. Yes, workers have more power than ever before. But no, that doesn't mean that every company should suddenly be able to offer paradise on earth. 😲 4-day work week, unlimited vacatio…

Brainteasers in interviews - stop it!

You may have heard of these so-called "clever" interview questions designed to test the mind, challenge creativity, or whatever the justification. Questions like "How many golf balls can you fit in a VW Golf?" or "How heavy is New York?" may seem interesting or unexpected at first glance. But what's really behind them? Are they test questions to gauge your problem-solving ability, or are they simply a way to throw you off your game? What exactly is a candidate supposed to take away from this q…

There is another way!

Every week I report on companies that get in their own way and don't put a foot wrong when it comes to recruiting. And there are actually quite a few of them.🤷‍♀️ But there are also really, really good employers who know what's important and can secure a very clear competitive advantage when it comes to bringing new colleagues on board. There are countless pros, here are the most important ones in brief and in my opinion also the recipe for success: clear and unambiguous search prof…

Together for the record!

My love for soccer began in 1991. As a little girl, I wanted nothing more than to stand on the pitch and win a cup.🏆 But I had to fight prejudice and rejection, because women's soccer was still frowned upon and unpopular back then. But that didn't stop me from continuing. Even in my boys' team, I didn't let anyone get me down. Soccer was my life.⚽️ But there was one dream that I was never able to fulfill and now never will be able to. I wanted to play for 1. FC Köln, my hometown club.…

"Ävver et Hätz bliev he en Kölle Ejal - wohin et Dich och trick"❤️ We started out in mini-offices in Cologne's industrial park, with just enough space for Katharina and Thilo. Consequently, the move to our office on the Schäl Sick, including a view of Cologne Cathedral, was something very special. The years will be forever connected with insanely great, exciting, challenging and successful moments. In 2023, the time has come and Engfer Consulting is moving again. The time is ripe fo…
