“Continuing education, flexibilization, corporate culture: How the Covid19 pandemic is changing equal opportunities in companies” – this is the (translated from German) title of a study published by “Initiative Chefsache” in March. It shows those who see Corona as an opportunity to finally drive change in the working world at an appropriate pace, that there is still a lot to do. And that, unfortunately, change doesn’t always mean moving forward. The numbers show that the pandemic has had an adverse effect on equal opportunities between men and women. In addition to a lack of flexible working models and a conservative corporate culture, the employees surveyed in the study complain mostly about the lack of up-to-date and appropriate learning and training opportunities.
We have compiled the most important figures from the study and used them as an opportunity to show how things could be improved and how companies can use the pandemic to make learning an integral part of the work culture in the day-to day lives of their employees, break up rigid structures, and promote positive change in terms of equal opportunities.

When we talk about a good employee experience, we also mean good educational and developmental opportunities for employees within companies. In many areas of business, continuous learning is an integral part of the job profile – at least it should be. The conditions under which organizations operate are constantly changing, sometimes insidiously, sometimes with a bang, as the pandemic has shown. But how do companies create a good learning experience throughout the entire duration of an employee’s stay within the company?

If you follow the current reports about the economic consequences of the Corona crisis, two main narratives can be identified. The first is that of a threatening wave of insolvencies. It is primarily affecting companies in the gastronomic, tourism, and events sectors, which are suffering the most under the new measures to contain the pandemic. The Association of Gastronomy expects one-third of businesses to close permanently in the coming weeks. This narrative is defined by fear, desperation, and the feeling of helplessness in the face of the circumstances.
At the same time, another narrative can be observed. It focuses on the possibilities and opportunities that the current crisis is creating. The assumption: When things, as we know them, disappear, new things inevitably emerge – and set progress in motion. This narrative is defined by curiosity, courage, and the feeling of being in control of the new situation.

The change that has been discussed, philosophized, talked about (talked to death even) for years, is suddenly here. And with a force and speed that has surprised many. In a good way, but not only. The realization that from one moment to the next nothing will be the same as before has unsettled many people. Even if they were covertly aware that the world was undergoing a fundamental change, they didn’t fully understand how this change would affect them until now. It’s too late to dodge the bullet.
We all have to say goodbye to routines, to a feeling of security, and to the idea that the others will know what to do – the boss, the colleague, the expert, the board. Regardless of which organizational level you look at: everywhere people are forced to do new things, to try things out, to throw the familiar overboard, and to go new routes without knowing whether they will bring the desired result.

In our series “Employee Experience” we will highlight all critical touchpoints of the “Employee Journey”. Today: Professional and personal development
“Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps”, was the title of a successful guidebook published in the year 1998. And even today, people from the entertainment industry fill huge venues with their stories about shoe-buying women and taciturn men. How simple would the world be if we could just label and categorize everyone. But let’s be honest: it would also be a pretty boring world.
Hence: Cheers to diversity! – Many companies would even sign on to that now – at least if a press representative is nearby. The topic of “diversity” clearly shows the difference between employer branding – meaning how companies would like it to be – and the employee experience – meaning how employees actually experience their work environment. Designing a good employee experience (unlike branding) requires that companies, and especially the people in talent management, really know and understand the individual skills, wishes and needs of their colleagues. Making new experiences and encounters possible, when they are needed and desired, replaces classic career development based on the “Design & Deliver” principle.Read more

Simply put, a matching process brings together what belongs together. To each their own or a lid to every pot – or rather, learning needs and know-how or project and skills. And here we are, right in the middle of Skill Matching and the question of what the whole thing has to do with the changing world of work. Read more
