Quiet Hiring: Opportunity or risk for Employer Branding?

80 percent of employees have already experienced the HR trend Quiet Hiring (Monster Survey, January 2023). 63 per cent see the process as an opportunity, 15 per cent are not ready for it and 27 per cent think of quitting if the employer deliberately forgoes external hiring and "quietly" redistributes the tasks of vacant positions to the existing workforce.

According to the Federal Employment Agency, workers were being sought for 761,000 jobs in September 2023 in Germany. Depending on the industry, it can take between 155 and 293 days to fill a vacancy. Some employers therefore rely on quiet hiring to save time and money. But beware, this HR trend not only brings opportunities, but also risks for your employer branding. We tell you how to use quiet hiring responsibly.
