I have been considering for long now, as to what the title of my post should be, when I came across the quote mentioned above. I had to read no further at all. All life is an eternal restart describes in such a short sentence, the change and the innovations, which we as a company and as employees may experience along and actively build together.
Last year was the most successful year in the history of WidasConcepts. We were able to reach both our sales and our growth targets, keeping in focus all along, our essence: the employees. In other words, we have strengthened our Employer Branding!
At the beginning of 2015, alongside our strategic HR objectives of growth and successful skill-building/training, we have defined an additional project. The Employer Branding concept of WidasConcepts shall be brought under the lens. Some scientific work, has given us a wider viewing angle. The following findings have resulted from it:
WidasConcepts as a holistic brand shall be brought in focus, more than ever. Here, the management and employees shall be equally involved in the review and redefinition of the core values and core competencies in order to identify with the values as much as possible.
Did we succeed? In October 2015 our Big Data Campaign went live under the slogan “What’s in IT for You?” We have defined the core values of progress, intelligence, performance and enthusiasm at a common workshop in March.
Generally it has been found that both our employees and applicants who consciously opt for a medium-sized company lay particular emphasis on the bringing in of their own ideas.
In addition to the building of the Big Data campaign, employees at WidasConcepts have also had the opportunity to help shape the development of WidasConcepts in the past. A point in the personal balanced scorecard given to each employee, deals explicitly with the influence of the employee to the organization.
“This perspective is all about the learning and growing organization. With this shall the capability be acquired to further develop ourselves.” describes the perspective.
We are looking for individuals…
… who would happily invent the wheel anew.
Furthermore, the motivators and characteristics of WidasConcepts should be worked out to bring them in focus. The ones that stand out here are the very good work atmosphere and the helpful colleagues, the above-average advancement opportunities as well as the demanding and equally innovative project tasks. This way we could come up in parallel with the list of who particularly well complements our team. The best WidasConcepts fit is the one….
… who is interested in innovative tasks and projects!
… who works well in a team!
… who is nevertheless also independent and takes self-responsibility!
… who wants to constantly advance himself/herself!
… who shares information and experiences with co-workers!
… who wants to bring in his own ideas!
With the successful opening of our branch in Bangalore and establishment in Germany, we could double our headcount within 12 months. All our employees, from our trainees to IT system-integrators have completed a good first training section and have completed first independent projects. Various findings from the compiled work, could be right-away implemented. As the title describes, we do not want to just stop here. What could this mean? For this year too, we are planning up to 14 new hires in the IT sector. In addition, we’ll fill the trainee positions of IT specialists for application development. That apart, for the year 2016, we plan to consolidate our Employer Branding through our new website. Here, the candidate shall get more insights into the focus areas at WidasConcepts and also receive tips for applying.
Goes without saying, the past years success has set a higher target for 2016 and we plan to celebrate many more success-stories as the New Year concludes. We believe that together, we can make it happen! Especially, with your support!
