Listening? – Easy as pie, most people will say. After all, don’t you just have to shut up and let others do the talking? But this is not the kind of listening that counts. Let’s be honest: Do you know how your colleagues are doing right now? I mean: How they are really doing? What they are dealing with? What moves them? What challenges they are facing? What’s going well and where they could use support?
HR is, without a doubt, one of the business areas most affected by disruption. That was already the case before the pandemic hit. This development has been further accelerated by Covid-19. In addition to new concepts for remote collaboration between employees, the focus is on personal and professional development of the people in an organization. And just like with the free choice of working hours and location, the emphasis is increasingly on self-determination. The days when middle management had the power to determine the career of the employees are over. Promoting career ownership, meaning that employees are responsible for shaping their own career in a self-determined way (with the manager in the role of a mentor and supporter), is becoming the main task of a future-oriented HR department. Organizations must create the framework for this, a framework of opportunities, if you will. Many large companies are already successfully working with software-based opportunity marketplaces such as the ones we are developing at Tandemploy. Today, we will show you what distinguishes these marketplaces from traditional talent management and why they are becoming more and more relevant. Read more
While others are just starting to address the topic of “digitalization”, employees in 58 countries and 276 cities worldwide are already using the Tandemploy software on a daily basis to network internally for a wide variety of reasons – for mentoring duos, job rotations, project work, onboarding, lunch dates, expert sessions and much more. The SaaS offers a broad range of matching topics to choose from, enabling organizations and their employees to transform into a mobile and vibrant corporate organism. Well-known companies like SAP, Evonik, Haspa, and Lufthansa are just some of the customers (and fans) of the matching software. From their Berlin headquarters, Tandemploy is not only conquering the German economy but is also increasingly gaining traction internationally. In 2020 the “brand eins” magazine listed the software in a row with Google Drive, Github, and Slack. Shortly afterward, America’s most famous morning show “Good Morning America” reported on the “Tinder for Businesses” from Germany. Read more

In our series “Employee Experience” we will highlight all critical touchpoints of the “Employee Journey”. Today: Onboarding.
It’s 2008, on a plane to London. On board: an aspiring intern with butterflies in her stomach. Huge anticipation, because getting the position was not easy. She’s really looking forward to giving it her all. The sky’s the limit and so on.
When she finally pushes through the narrow glass door to the offices in the City of London, huge backpack on her back – sweaty but happy – ready for more warmth, a bit of glitter and confetti….nothing happens. Instead of a warm welcome, as the previous email correspondence had led her to expect, her contact person doesn’t even get up from his chair. He is kind of in the middle of something.
She is left standing there and doesn’t know what to do with herself. There is no desk for her. The rom-com she had envisioned in her head of the intern from Berlin that turns the London PR world upside-down is showing first signs of turning into a tragedy.
Will it really turn out to be this terrible?Read more

In the past few weeks, we have repeatedly been attested war-like circumstances in view of Covid-19. For HR managers nothing new so far. They have been at war for years, the “War for Talents”. This bellicose phrase has become part of the standard vocabulary in the HR field.
There are three main reasons for the tough HR challenges in the talent market:
the global competition,
the demographic shift,
the change in values, especially among young people.
Covid-19 and its aftermath now give the combating parties – companies all over the world – an involuntary cease-fire. The uncertain situation has led to hiring freezes and consequently to free time, which HR staff could and should use to reevaluate whether, over the past years, they have been fighting for the best people with the right “weapons”.Read more

Employee Experience begins with empathy. If a company’s talent managers really want to understand what experiences people make in the course of their professional life, they have to try putting themselves in their position as best as possible. To feel what they feel. To understand their needs. Only then can they design products that create positive experiences in connection with working in the company.
Wait a second, “Products”?? But employees aren’t customers! Or are they? Read more
