Once Tandemploy, always Tandemploy? – Given the speed at which our environment is changing, we might not want to go that far. But the fact is: For more than three years now, we have not lost a single customer. Every (!) pilot has been extended because our software convinces and provides organizations with tangible support in achieving their goals. Even before the crisis, many companies recognized how important it is to know their employees and to make their (sometimes hidden) skills visible and promote them. Others are now following suit. Our users and fans include companies such as the Lufthansa Group, SAP, and Evonik, but also various mid-sized companies such as insurance companies, suppliers, banks, just to name a few. Employees in 58 countries and 276 cities worldwide are networking with SaaS for a wide variety of reasons and working models. Trend: rising.
How is Tandemploy different? What is the secret of our success (which is actually not so secret)? – The five main points that inspire our customers are: Read more

The pragmatic and visionary talk with Yannik from Kienbaum and Anna from Tandemploy
The ethical use of employee data has the potential to make all our (work) lives better – a statement that both the Tandemploy as well as the Kienbaum team would confirm immediately. All the more reason to stick our heads together and continue to push forward the smart use of data in HR. The role models: Trailblazing projects in the area of open data and smart city, such as those being implemented in Finland. These show the innovative power that data can unleash when used boldly, in compliance with the GDPR, and with good intentions. Namely, in a way that people understand that the use of their data benefits them directly and not some invisible “Big Brother”.Read more

“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.

Best Practice: This is how the Lufthansa Group leverages its full potential during the crisis
How much potential do companies waste if they do not utilize and promote the hidden talents and skills of their employees? This question is driving more and more organizations, in addition to the need to work in a more connected and flexible way, made even more visible by the crisis. A digital talent marketplace enables both: improved talent management and a collaborative, agile way of working. The Lufthansa Group recognized this and launched its talent marketplace CanDo in the middle of the crisis. In the interview at the end of this article, Tamara Winter, Manager Performance & Potential Management at Lufthansa AG, talks about the motivations, the path to the launch of the marketplace, and her preliminary conclusion after the first few months.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

The world is becoming more complex every day, and organizations are facing the challenge of responding smartly. In particular, the banking industry is strongly affected by change and urgently needs to reorient and innovate. While many banks in Germany appear uncertain and are on the decline, Hamburger Sparkasse relies on good networking and is thus definitely one of the pioneers in the banking industry. With the introduction of the internal Tandemploy software as an internal networking platform (christened “FlexWorkz”), they show how flexibilization and networking can look in a modern working environment. They use Tandemploy software to better network all employees and pave the way for new modes of working. Within HASPA, employees can now easily find job sharing, knowledge sharing (expert knowledge and career tips), reverse mentoring and lunch dating. We talked with Dr. Elisabeth Keßeböhmer (Head of Human Resources) and Nicole Vogler (HR Manager & Project Manager for Tandemploy SaaS at HASPA) about the great importance of networking in the context of digital transformation, their tool “FlexWorkz,” and their first success stories.

We live in a networked world in which everything is interconnected. We have unlimited opportunities to connect with people around the globe, to find like-minded people and an expert for everything. Professional cross-company networks such as Linkedin allow us to make contacts around the world, around the clock. Why are we still so badly networked within companies? And how can internal organizational silos be reduced? Here’s why networking is the key to almost all processes of digital transformation, and what we should all do more of to improve our careers:

In this time of social media platforms, a new term comes up every now and then: flash organizations. Very briefly, flash organizations are temporary companies that can be used to quickly and effectively implement complex projects. To do this, optimal teams with the right skills are put together within a very short time. Sounds exciting. It’s reason enough to take a closer look at the “flash organization” model.

Knowledge is an important topic when it comes to digital transformation in companies. Good and continuous knowledge transfer brings many benefits and can provide a competitive advantage. Similarly, conscious use of the knowledge and ability of employees is playing an increasingly important role. What knowledge already exists in your company? What skills are there? Which ones do organizations need in the future? And how can they be used strategically? A systematic skill management plan can offer solutions.
Knowledge transfer is currently one of THE topics when it comes to digital transformation in companies. At the same time, dealing with knowledge is also a big challenge. Increased flexibility, higher turnover and greater complexity make companies more vulnerable to a loss of knowledge. Therefore, a good, continuous knowledge transfer has many advantages.
Get out of silos!
Flexibility and collaboration are essential for holistic digitalization. However, neither are not possible in silos. Much of the knowledge lies in the minds of employees. So how can knowledge transfer take place when employees work in their own silos? They need structures and ways of working that not only allow creative, innovative and free thinking, but actively promote it. In companies, therefore, one’s own digital transformation always begins with the successful networking of employees and a flexibilization of the work models and structures – which thus enables a lively transfer of knowledge.
Systematic knowledge transfer contributes to the optimization of work and business processes
Errors and duplication can be avoided
It’s easier to identify problems and turn them into new solutions – through multiple perspectives
Key knowledge is lost less often – it benefits predecessors, successors and the organization
A continuous stream of knowledge develops between older and younger colleagues, from which all sides profit
Different competencies can be combined with each other – thus the team becomes more efficient through a successful knowledge transfer
Experts can be more easily located to share their knowledge
Networking employees and collaborative work also ensure a stronger connection to the company
All these aspects also mean that companies can save time and money. In-house knowledge transfer is therefore worthwhile at all levels: relevant knowledge remains within the company, and employees can work together in a more collaborative manner and complement each other optimally – thereby promoting the ability to innovate. New colleagues find it easier to familiarize themselves and knowledge is available more quickly to all employees.
Although these sound like good arguments, you might still need some help with the implementation.
Here’s the good news upfront: every company already has an incredible amount of knowledge, creativity and innovation potential. What’s missing are spaces to share knowledge, to open and connect silos, and to foster a lively exchange of expertise and ideas. With our Tandemploy SaaS, we connect this valuable and existing knowledge within your company – and support you in your full potential development.

Mentoring can do much if we dare to turn away from the classic top-down approach, and assume that everyone can be a mentor. Together, Heike Hoch and Kathrin Lamm run “Applaus. Das Institut für wertschätzende Kommunikation” (English: Applause. The Institute for Appreciative Communication; hereafter “Applaus”). They work closely together and are simultaneously mentor and mentee for one another. In this interview, they describe how this works organizationally and what positive influence it has on their personal and professional development.

Three years ago, the Berlin-based company Tandemploy launched the job-sharing platform of the same name and since then has become an integral part of the HR scene and discussions about the “future of work.” The interest in working models and tandem matching on the platform has not subsided – it represents a very concrete way to really shape work differently.
In the meantime, a lot has happened. With its new software, Tandemploy is flexibilizing entire companies – from SMEs to global corporations – from the inside out.
Anna Kaiser and Jana Tepe, the two founders and managing directors of a 20-strong team, told us in an interview what this is all about and what their further plans are.
