Der ganz besondere Titel: Top-HR-Management

Posted by Catrin Beu on Mon, Nov 13, 2017 @ 04:30 PM

Ohne HR läuft nichts in den Unternehmen. Ob Recruiting oder Employer Branding, Personal- und Führungskräfteentwicklung: HR-Profis stehen im Blickfeld.

Und damit auch andere das erkennen, sollten Sie auch besondere Anerkennung von außen bekommen - zum Beispiel durch einen der begehrtesten Wirtschaftspreise Deutschlands, den German Stevie Awards.

Wie wäre es, wenn Sie in den Award Kategorien für Human Resources glänzen. Bewerben Sie sich um die Titel „Abteilung des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“, „Team des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“ oder „Führungskraft des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“.

Sie haben diesen Preis verdient, weil Sie die Besten sind? Dann haben Sie es selbst in der Hand, den Preis zu bekommen. Zeigen Sie uns und der Fachjury aus anerkannten Fachleuten, dass Ihr HR ausgezeichnet ist.

Die Bewerbungsphase läuft bereits auf Hochtouren. Zwei Teilnahmefristen müssen Sie beachten: Am 6. Dezember 2017 endet der erste Einsendeschluss mit der reduzierten Preisträgergebühr. Und am 24. Januar 2018 ist der finale Einsendeschluss.

Preisträgerbühr? Richtig, die German Stevie Awards berechnen für die Einreichung von Nominierungen keine Teilnahmegebühren mehr, sondern Preisträgergebühren. Der Vorteil für Sie: Sie können kostenfrei unbegrenzt viele Nominierungen in den verschiedenen Kategorien einreichen und zahlen die Gebühr erst, wenn Sie einen Gold, Silber und Bronze Stevie Award gewonnen haben. Die Preisverleihung findet übrigens am 27. April 2018 in Berlin statt.

Wenn Sie und/oder Ihr Team Herausragendes im HR geleistet haben, bewerben Sie sich als „Abteilung des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“, „Team des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“ oder „Führungskraft des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“ um einen German Stevie Award.

Warum Sie sich jetzt bewerben sollten? Viele unserer Gewinner berichten, dass der Gewinn eines HR-Awards - geschickt genutzt - seine positive Wirkung sowohl im eigenen Unternehmen als auch extern entfaltet. Intern steigt das Ansehen der Personalabteilung und der Legitimationsdruck lässt nach. Nach außen hin wird die HR-Abteilung mit einer Auszeichnung bei Kunden und potenziellen Arbeitnehmern wahrgenommen. Im Recruiting eingesetzt, führt eine Auszeichnung zu einer höheren Arbeitgeberattraktivität. 

CCO Dirk Meinkers von Rheinbrücke It Consulting bei der Preisverleihung in HamburgDiese Chance hat sich die RheinBrücke IT Consulting GmbH aus Köln nicht entgehen lassen. Sie stellt den Gold-Stevie-Gewinner als Abteilung des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources. Das Motto ihrer Bewerbung: „A company’s most valuable asset is its employees.“ RheinBrücke hat verstanden, dass die Beschäftigten die beste Umgebung haben sollen, um zu wachsen und die Karriereziele zu erreichen.

Den Gold-Stevie als „Führungskraft des Jahres im Bereich Human Resources“ hat Anne Jaakke erhalten. Sie ist Global HR Director bei Hunkemöller Deutschland in Gelsenkirchen. Hunkemöller ist eine internationale Omni-Channel-Marke und Marktführer in der Dessous-Branche in Nordeuropa. Anne Jaakke hat bei Hunkemöller Neuerungen wie das Video-Recruiting, die Welcome-App, die InTouch-App und das Einführungsprogramm „Live it Up!“ eingeführt, eine Kombination aus Online-Learning und Training on-the-job. 

Werden auch Sie zum Gewinner bei den German Stevie Awards. Die Bewerbungsunterlagen finden Sie hier.

innogy SE über den Gewinn bei den 1. Stevie Awards for Great Employers 2016

Posted by Catrin Beu on Thu, Jun 01, 2017 @ 07:00 AM

Noch bis zum 19. Juli 2017 haben Unternehmen weltweit die Möglichkeit, sich bei den 2. Stevie Awards for Great Employers zu bewerben, um sich mit ihren besten HR-Leistungen zu präsentieren und einen Stevie Award zu gewinnen.

Im vergangenen Jahr lobten die Stevie Awards diesen speziellen HR-Preis zum allerersten Mal aus. Einer der großen Gewinner war der deutsche Energiekonzern innogy SE aus Essen. Mit ihrer APP „App your future: h-app-y retirement planning“ gewann das Unternehmen, damals noch als Teil der RWE Gruppe, dreimal Gold in den Kategorien Achievement in HR Technology, Self-Service HR Solution und Other New Product or Service.

Wir sprachen mit innogy über ihre Teilnahme an den Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

Stevie Awards: Was hat Sie dazu bewegt, sich bei dem neuen HR-Award der Stevies zu bewerben?
innogy SE: Am Rande einer bekannten Wirtschaftstagung haben wir unsere „APP in die Zukunft“ vorgestellt und stießen bei den Teilnehmern auf große Begeisterung. Unsere Peer-Kollegen, insbesondere aus den DAX-Unternehmen, haben uns schließlich auf die Stevie Awards aufmerksam gemacht und uns zur Bewerbung motiviert. Sie waren der Auffassung, dass wir mit unserer App eine Lösung für ein wichtiges Themenfeld entwickelt haben, die unseren Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeitern einen echten Mehrwert bietet, innovativ ist und eine Auszeichnung verdient.  

Lesen Sie hier mehr über „APP your future“.

Stevie Awards: Wie haben Sie den Bewerbungsprozess erlebt?
innogy SE: Der Prozess verlief sehr schlank, transparent und anwenderfreundlich, wie man sich es von einem solchen Verfahren wünscht. Wir konnten unsere Bewerbungsunterlagen bequem hochladen und verlinken. Der Kontakt zu den Stevie Awards Mitarbeitern war insgesamt sehr angenehm.

Stevie Awards: Sie haben dann auch an der Preisverleihung in New York teilgenommen.
innogy SE: Wir haben bereits vor der Preisverleihung erfahren, dass wir uns in 3 Kategorien Hoffnungen auf eine Auszeichnung machen durften, sodass wir gespannt und voller Vorfreude nach New York gereist sind. Der Spirit vor Ort, die Teilnehmer aus den international renommierten Unternehmen und nicht zuletzt auch der Veranstaltungssaal waren schon eine Klasse für sich. Die Atmosphäre war grandios. Als wir dann noch in allen 3 Kategorien mit Gold ausgezeichnet wurden, kannte der Jubel natürlich keine Grenzen mehr und die Nacht wurde ziemlich lang…!

Sehen Sie hier das Video der Preisverleihung. Den Gold Stevie Award nahm entgegen Frau Stefanie Kemp, Head of IT Cross Functional Services der innogy SE. 

Im Videointerview im Anschluss an Preisverleihung erklärt Stefanie Kemp, was der Award für sie und das Unternehmen bedeutet.

Stevie Awards: Welche Eigenschaften haben zum Gewinn und zu dem Erfolg Ihres Unternehmens beigetragen?
innogy SE:
Die Entwicklung innovativer und digitaler Lösungen ist Teil der DNA unseres Unternehmens und bedeutet für uns Freude und Verpflichtung zugleich. Mit kreativen Service Design Thinking Methoden stellen wir eine Einbeziehung der Zielgruppen über die gesamte Entwicklungsphase, von der Konzeption bis zum Roll Out, sicher. So entwickeln wir Lösungen, die optimal auf die Bedürfnisse unserer Kunden – im Falle der App in die Zukunft also die Bedürfnisse unserer Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeiter – einzahlen.

Über die innogy SE:

Die innogy SE ist das führende deutsche Energieunternehmen mit einem Umsatz von rund 44 Milliarden Euro (2016), mehr als 40.000 Mitarbeitern und Aktivitäten in 16 europäischen Ländern. Mit ihren drei Geschäftsfeldern Netz & Infrastruktur, Vertrieb und Erneuerbare Energien adressiert die innogy SE die Anforderungen einer modernen dekarbonisierten, dezentralen und digitalen Energiewelt.
innogy ist am 1. April 2016 operativ an den Start gegangen. Das Unternehmen ist aus der Reorganisation des RWE-Konzerns hervorgegangen.

“In many parts of the world, including in the United States, solar power, generated locally, is well on its way to becoming the most cost-effective, environmentally beneficial and aesthetically pleasing energy option for any customer-facing business,” said David Crane, NRG President and Chief Executive Officer. “Starwood is an acknowledged leader in this regard in the global tourism and hospitality industry. We look forward to working with Starwood on clean energy and related sustainability initiatives in order to achieve the environmental and economic goals that we share in common.”
