On a missionary trip as a Great Place to Work embassador
// Corporate Culture
In addition to our activities in the Münsterland region regarding a trust-based company culture, we are also taking advantage of opportunities to discuss 21st century management style concepts in an international arena. As such, Uwe Rotermund recently spoke in Stockholm (Sweden) at the international meeting of HR organisations, to which the German Association for Personnel Management (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Personalmanagement e.V.) had extended an invitation, about the effect of the global mega trends on the work environment. Subsequently, experienced HR staff
from Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, the UK and Denmark also shared their contributions. Based on this, all attendees were able to take home with them a lot of new ideas and important insights. This is particularly exciting, since it is well known that the Northern European states are considered world leaders in the areas of management and company culture. Here, learning from the best was the motto.
With the awarding of the prize to the "Best Workplaces in Europe" in Dublin (Ireland), Uwe Rotermund was asked to illustrate during the preceding conference his concepts regarding the topic of "controlling a Great Place to Work with the help of a strategic management system using EFQM" as an example. In this, he made it clear in front of the 200 attendees that, on the one hand, Great Place to Work is an excellent basis for a well and successfully managed company. He furthermore proposed the idea that it is necessary to achieve orientation and controlling via a holistic management system that is a fit to the claim of a culture of trust. Therefore, he focused on leading with trust and vision, but additionally also with clear processes and key performance indicators (KPIs). This topic received a lot of interest from the attendees.
