At our Berlin office, we work with the highest degree of flexibility – and think in terms of tasks, not in fixed positions. We are always trying new forms and formats of work and trying every day to live what we preach to the outside world. In our 30-member team, all colleagues work in flexible work models. Currently we have three job-sharing tandems, four interdisciplinary project teams, five freelancers and 12 colleagues with a four-day week. We want to introduce some of them today and explain why we do what we do.

The best software in the world can only change organizations as much as people and culture allow. That is why at Tandemploy we do not only believe in the tandem principle when it comes to our job: through our new partnership with nextexitfuture, we’re changing and guiding companies sustainably – and with their cumulative startup and corporate experience. Together, the 8 founders of nextexitfuture have an impressive 160 years of experience in large companies: in top management, on executive boards and supervisory boards, and as investors. They know big hierarchical constructs, silo mentality, and the “but culture” of some internal stakeholders like the backs of their hands.

What role do networks play in digitalization? How can the digital transformation be designed effectively and how can employees be helped along the way? What else is there to digitalization apart from the buzzwords? And do we really still need HR?
Every day, we get many exciting visitors at the Tandemploy office. So, we thought we would invite these digitalization experts, role models, New Workers, digital leaders and difference makers to our Yellow Couch and ask them these and other questions. Yellow Couch Talks – our new Tandemploy format for inspiration, questions, and discussions.

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.
Since May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in effect. Many companies are affected by these new legal regulations. There are still questions in many places. To get a better overview of the changes, apart from hard-to-understand legal explanations, we spoke with Marco Tessendorf, external data protection officer and director of procado Consulting, IT & Medienservice GmbH from Berlin.

Stonehedge Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH is a real-estate developer based in Berlin and its group of companies includes all types of skills, from acquisition to sales. They believe in flexible working and an open culture. We talked to Nedeljko Prodanovic about flexible working models, his wishes for their first tandem position, and the corporate culture of Stonehedge.
Tandemploy develops software that purposefully and cleverly networks people and knowledge in organizations: to facilitate the sharing of knowledge, to work collectively to make flexible forms of work a reality, and to support digital transformation in companies. But we always try to live what we preach to the outside world. How else could we credibly and effectively make organizations more flexible and use our solutions to inspire a more agile working world?? Small companies like us especially have the freedom and opportunity to act quickly, to be brave and to try new things. Who, if not us, can live “new” work and initiate social change? Who, if not us, is responsible for tomorrow’s work environment, which in the best-case scenario starts today?

Sara-Lena Eisermann has been Customer Happiness Manager at Tandemploy GmbH since 01.02.2018. Previously, she was HR Specialist at Spreadshirt in Leipzig. During this time, she had already started to study the Working Out Loud (WOL) method. She is currently in the middle of a 12-week WOL Circle. In the interview, she talked about her experiences with WOL and what added value this method can have for companies.

Marion Hellebrandt started as an intern at Tandemploy more than two years ago. She now works in the Product Team and, together with her tandem partner Christian, forms the interface between IT and the rest of the team. Marion never imagined that she would be part of the IT department. In the interview, we discussed the path to their current job, the different stations, and the advantages of job rotation.

Admittedly, in the beginning we were a bit skeptical as to whether these “innovation trips” by big companies into our Tandemploy world would have the desired effect. In the meantime, busloads of managers come to visit us regularly – and we can say that it is very rare for these “learning journeys,” “new work tours,” or “safaris” to have no impact.
This is because it is not just a question of “taking a peek” into our world, and then going back to one’s own, excited but unchanged. The point is not to highlight the differences between “old” and “new” economics and demonstrate an imaginary rift by emphasizing these differences. Rather, it is about showing more and more that, at the end of the day, we work and operate in one economy – and both sides can learn an incredible amount from each other.
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.
