Visiting Tandemploy – Innovation trips with an effect.

The practical implementations and effectiveness of the concept of job sharing remain under-researched. The benefits are intuitive and emotionally understandable – but tangible evidence and numbers lag behind. Tandemploy would like to change that by exploring the pitfalls, advantages, cultural conditions, and much more using diverse, collaborative research.

A recent collaboration with the Zeppelin University in Friedrichshafen and the University of Hamburg has just brought to light some amazing things. Three different types of job sharers were identified whose “career concepts” do not have much in common with our previous understandings. It has become clear that commitment is the new diligence!
