RedSofa Berlin was launched in 2014.

As part of the rapidly expanding RedSofa family, we were determined to create a European Creative Recruitment Hub with a real difference. In other words, do a better job than the competition and have fun at the same time.

Well, years on we're helping and placing more people than we ever thought possible and having more fun than we ever imagined.

Our philosophy is blindingly simple: only hire the very best consultants and then watch them and the business flourish. Of course, there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and the building of long-term relationships: but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior designers to global CEOs. Our expertise in most areas is now being regarded as almost unequaled.

A Human Touch

Steve Buss 19th June 2020

Recently, I’ve read a few accounts concerning frustrations around receiving ‘automated responses’, in particular rejection emails for jobs applied for.

In these unprecedented times, many people who are not so lucky to be working deserve a dignified response with a human feel.  Rejection is painful enough, so let’s not under-estimate the impact this can have on morale.

That said, we also have to appreciate that, given the volume of applications for some companies, it’s not always possible to give personalised feedback.  However, we could do well to find a balance and where possible promote a mindful and individual approach.

Right now, it’s a complex picture out there, notwithstanding the uncertainty concerning how and when markets will recover.

A little empathy goes a long way, as does a personal human touch!
