SIA Tools: Know Your Lingo to Hire Right

Rekrutim, recrutare, empleo, uitzen, pessoal, reclutamento, trabajo temporal, atvinna and intérim: All of these are terms for staffing and recruitment used throughout Europe. Do you know which is which? If you want to get ahead in hiring the best candidate, you need to know the terms to use in your target country. Does your company have a handle on the most basic terms and lingo to address contingent work outside of the U.S.?

Many companies are expanding their reach throughout Europe, and we at Staffing Industry Analysts are expanding our contingent workforce coverage to include all of Europe. Knowledge is the key to any company’s success on the global stage. To help CW managers get started down this path, Staffing Industry Analysts has compiled a list of key staffing terms used throughout Europe. The dictionary lists for each European country its capital, Internet tag, currency, phone code, and population in addition to the terms used for staffing and recruitment in the local language.

This is a must-have resource for any company with global operations that wants to create a more comprehensive database and have more complete understanding of their contingent workforce. Further, the key terms can be used to search the Internet in conjunction with a translation tool such as Google Translate, WorldLingo, SDL, FreeTranslation, Lexilogos or Yahoo Babel Fish.
