In part 2 of our mini series “Rock & Role” we are about to share a Tandemploy Best Practice with you. Our colleague Christoph is taking on a new role in the product team these days. In the following interview he tells us how he manages this role next to his role as Digital Marketing Manager, how it changes his daily work routine, and how he deals with role conflicts.

Role trumps position – this assumption has proven itself at Tandemploy. Although we use job descriptions when searching for new employees, we already evaluate which strengths and competencies the new team member brings along during the onboarding process and where these can be useful outside the defined position. In this way, we raise the awareness from the beginning that no one is stuck within one job forever and signal the following: We want to get to know you – with all your strengths, interests, and wishes regarding your work with us. Over time, this often results in completely new team constellations that help us move forward, but which we did not have in mind at all when we advertised the position.
Beyond the recruiting process, the need for new or changing roles arises in the day to day business as well. Which roles are needed essentially results from the following three questions: Read more

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

As we all know, normality is a question of perspective. ‘That’s not normal!’ some people might say. Others might ask ‘What is normal?’. And the next group will claim ‘Normal is boring’. And: Who wants to be boring? Don’t we all want to be a little bit different? And don’t we have to be a little different in order to be innovative? But if everyone is different, then what is normal? Does the category “normal” still work in the VUCA world, where things are changing at a rapid pace?
If you’re looking for an easy answer to the question “What is the New Normal”, you will be disappointed. Instead we need to uncover the core values of the organization that we are working for and, from there, pave new paths for collaboration together. The result? – Unknown. And that’s a good thing.

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

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
