Extending your Success - from Kilometer 1 to 13,000


Filling a large number of very different positions across Germany in a short time is a Herculean task. Especially if recruiting is not one of your core competencies. But in the end, selecting the right employees is crucial to success. This makes it all the more important to have reliable partners, companions and advisors who know the processes precisely and can thus provide individual and agile support where the need is most urgent.

Autobahn GmbH is ready to take off

The year 2021 also marked the starting signal for a historic innovation in the federal highway administration. Although the corresponding reform to reorganize financial relations between the federal and state governments was already passed in 2017 and the federally owned Autobahn GmbH, headquartered in Berlin, was founded in 2018 - the start of business operations then fully took place in January of this year. By bundling tasks centrally, several advantages are to be realized. In addition to faster planning, the new organization also enables uniform quality standards nationwide and efficiency gains through synergy effects.

Since day one, the federal highway company has pursued the goals of faster planning, more efficient construction, operation and maintenance. To ensure this, it needs around 15,000 employees throughout the country. The tasks of the federally owned GmbH now include not only planning, construction, operation and maintenance, but also the financing and management of the highway asset.

Filling a large number of very different positions across Germany in a short time is a Herculean task. 

Profiting from the outsourcing of personnel-related processes

The outsourcing concept has long been established in industry. The advantages are obvious: turn fixed costs into variable costs and take advantage of the service provider's efficiency benefits. Business process outsourcing is also a strategic success factor in the HR sector. For more than 20 years, we have been solving the technical and organizational challenges as well as the personnel challenges of our customers from the high-tech industry, such as IT and communications technology, the automotive industry or the energy sector. In the context of HR BPO, we have already been able to support start-ups such as Lilium with ARTS Expert on-site recruitment as well as onboarding.

Autobahn GmbH relies on ARTS as a strong HR partner.

ARTS and Autobahn GmbH - An Exclusive Partnership

Autobahn GmbH has also been benefiting from the advantages of an HR BPO that we offer since August 2020. Within the scope of this cooperation, we currently take over the entire recruiting process for up to 400 positions. Our 7 recruiters and 4 operational and strategic project managers work decentrally from the ARTS headquarters in Dresden to fill the positions throughout Germany. All participants bring their expertise from the various disciplines to the table.

We have also adapted technically to Autobahn GmbH and work fully in their applicant management system. This means an increase in efficiency for the entire process. We agreed on the services, such as optimizing the jobs and publishing them in various relevant channels, as well as maximizing reach through targeted multi-channel distribution, individually with Autobahn GmbH. One of the distinguishing features of our HR BPO service is that we can take on individual subtasks as well as the entire recruitment process. The focus is always on the individual needs of the customer.

In the case of Autobahn GmbH, our experts also directly contact suitable candidates in various social media channels and applicant databases, conduct telephone and video interviews and, if necessary, on-site interviews. In this way, we can provide Autobahn with a well-founded hiring recommendation for every position we advertise and help make Germany's autobahns even more efficient. 

Prior to the launch of the HR BPO, we set up a dedicated landing page for career seekers to not only generate more reach for the vacancies, but also create SEO-relevant backlink management for Autobahn's career site. 

Additional job landing pages also help to target advertisements. The job ads placed on arts.eu are SEO-optimized and linked to the Autobahn GmbH application form.

Our many years of HR expertise also enable our experts to uncover potential for improvement and optimize existing basic structures.

Our HR BPO services are applied in every area of human resources. While Autobahn GmbH focuses particularly on recruiting and assessment, we can also support you in the areas of employer branding and personnel marketing, onboarding, employee management and outplacement. We can also take over time-consuming, recurring tasks of an administrative nature, such as the preparation of references and contracts, as part of a business process outsourcing.
