Talents Connect by 22CONNECT

Talents Connect supports the recruiting- and HR market in terms of digitization and adaptation to new circumstances: CVs are supplemented by personality profiles and an algorithm assumes time-consuming search for jobs and candidates. The matching technology brings companies and suitable candidates together. Both sides save time, because writing and reading of applications become largely void thanks to the matching algorithm.

TANDEMPLOY – HR-Technologie für Jobsharing und flexible Arbeit by Tandemploy GmbH

Tandemploy GmbH develops innovative HR technologies to facilitate job sharing and flexible working models. On the one hand, the online platform fosters external marketing effects of flexible (job sharing) models. On the other hand, the new software as a service solution flex:workz supports companies with the flexibilisation of their internal structures.

Increasingly flexible working models are a matter truly dear to the heart of the Tandemploy GmbH, their major concern and their contribution towards an essentially sustainable and live-friendly working world. Needless to say this starts with the own company – thus at Tandemploy itself: All full-time jobs are basically job sharing friendly, 4 out of 11 employees are already working as tandems in job sharing constellations.
