Effectiveness of inclusive language in job advertisements


Do companies actually receive more applications from qualified individuals if they formulate their advertisements more inclusively? As part of a large-scale field experiment with a recruitment agency, improved versions of advertisements are published with the help of JADE, and the effectiveness of inclusive language on application pools is analyzed based on the response.

New pathways for upskilling temporary workers


The commitment of local stakeholders from human resource management (HRM), works councils, and training institutions is important in order to breathe new life into existing labour market support instruments. Using the example of upskilling temporary workers, this project aims to develop new approaches for how responsibility among local stakeholders may be shared in the future and how cooperation can be organised effectively.
