The annual employee appraisal
The annual employee appraisal is our central management and personnel development tool. Away from the daily business, the managers and employees calmly discuss aspects of cooperation, performance, goals and development measures. This creates opportunities for our employees, our managers and our company:
For our employees
Our employees get the opportunity in retrospect to talk about cooperation and performance. At the same time, we take a look at the future and set goals and agreements for the following year. The current and future tasks are the basis for deriving concrete steps for further professional development.
For our managers
We provide our managers with a sustainable tool for staff management. The appraisal interview helps to improve communication by clearly defining mutual expectations between the supervisor and the employee. The agreements made are needs-oriented and always take the employee's strengths and potential into account.
360 degree feedback
Leaders often ask themselves: "How is my leadership behavior assessed by those around me and how can I optimize it?" 360-degree feedback provides valuable answers to these questions. Typically, managers only receive feedback from their direct supervisors. The problem here: Direct supervisors can only assess a part of the overall leadership work.
In 360-degree feedback, you as the feedback recipient receive systematic feedback on your leadership work from different perspectives.
Within the framework of skills management, we identify and develop your professional and methodological skills. This is how ensure that the required skills are deployed in the right place at the right time. Your manager checks which skills are required in the associated organizational unit and discusses the results with you.
Individual development agreement
We specifically prepare our employees in all areas for future positions. In personal interviews, supervisors reflect on individual successes with their employees and identify strengths and areas for development. From this, we jointly derive targeted personnel development measures. In the next step, we agree on the development measures with the help of a development plan - be it on-the-job, off-the-job or near-the-job.
Assessments for junior managers
To support staffing decisions for management trainee positions, we offer assessments for potential management trainees. This gives you the chance to draw on the experience and evaluations of colleagues who work closely with you. With this, we can add to your own view once again. As a feedback recipient, you'll receive a development agreement that you can grow from in the long term. The aim is to broaden the company's view and to incorporate several opinions into the staffing decision. This is part of our open feedback culture in the company. With the help of the assessment, we ensure reasonable and verifiable decision-making criteria for a management career.
Global development opportunities
In our international company, we'll show you paths that lead beyond borders. Through our globally connected subsidiaries, we offer you various opportunities to work abroad. In addition to professional success, your safety is our top priority. As a member of "International SOS" you'll have access to a global network of Assistance Centers. This will provide you with extended protection abroad if you need assistance with medical or travel safety cases.
