Posted by Jule Kern on Fri, Jul 31, 2020 @ 05:13 AM

Sechs Stevie® Awards für den Digitalpartner bei den German Stevie Awards 2020

Gastautorin: Julia Münster, diva-e Chief Human Resources Officer  

Bei den German Stevie Awards 2020 erhielt die diva-e Digital Value Excellence GmbH aus Berlin fünf Silber und einen Bronze Stevie Award 2020 für verschiedene Initiativen zur Verbesserung von Rekrutierung, Onboarding, Employer Branding, Benefits und Karriere-Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten.

Um das besondere Engagement im Personalmanagement zu würdigen, zeichnete die Jury der German Stevie Awards 2020 die HR-Mitarbeiter von diva-e als HR-Team und HR-Abteilung des Jahres 2020 aus. Besondere Beachtung fanden der schnellste Recruiting-Prozess aller Zeiten und das diva-e Leadership-Programm für Führungskräfte, die beide einen Silber-Award erhielten. 

Überzeugende Candidate-Experience in Zeiten des „War for Talents“

In den Zeiten des War for Talents und Fachkräftemangels hat diva-e eine Strategie entwickelt, die potentielle Kandidaten bereits im Recruiting durch eine ausgezeichnete Candidate-Experience von dem Unternehmen überzeugen soll. Das standortübergreifende Recruiting-Team hat diesen Prozess, der Kandidaten deutschlandweit einen einheitlichen, schnellen und reibungslosen Bewerbungsablauf bietet, bereits 2019 etabliert.

diva-e gibt dabei einen authentischen Unternehmenseinblick über alle Standorte hinweg und zeichnet sich zudem durch schnelle Entscheidungsfindungen aus. Der Prozess bis Einstellung oder Absage überschreitet in der Regel nicht einmal 14 Tage. Hat der Bewerber diva-e und diva-e den Bewerber überzeugen können, wird ein zweiter Termin vereinbart, der bereits fünf Tage nach dem ersten Vorstellungsgespräch stattfindet. Anschließend erhält der Kandidat binnen zwei Tagen die Zusage und den Vertragsentwurf oder eine Absage. Das regelmäßige positive Feedback der Kandidaten zum schnellen Prozess spricht für sich. 

Durch ein strukturiertes Ausbildungsprogramm auf die Team-Lead- und Managing-Director-Ebene

Julia Münster, Chief Human Resources Officer bei diva-eAus Erfahrung weiß diva-e wie wichtig es ist, gute Mitarbeiter nicht nur zu finden, sondern auch zu halten. Ein wichtiger Beweggrund, um dauerhaft in einem Unternehmen zu bleiben, sind für viele Mitarbeiter interne Weiterentwicklungsmöglichkeiten. Aus diesem Grund entwickelte das diva-e HR-Team im Jahr 2018 ein Leadership-Programm für die Qualifizierung von Führungskräften, das initial durch ein Projektteam, in Abstimmung mit dem Management, über mehrere Monate konzipiert wurde.

Im Sommer 2019 wurden die Teilnehmer des ersten Jahrgangs auf Team-Lead- und Managing-Director-Ebene ausgewählt. Die erfolgreiche Umsetzung auf beiden Ebenen erfolgte bereits im Herbst 2019 mit den ersten internen Veranstaltungen.

Seitdem hat sich das Programm rasant und sehr positiv weiterentwickelt: Auf beiden Ebenen starteten die Teilnehmer mit den ersten externen Modulen. Auf Managing-Director-Ebene nahmen die Teilnehmer ihre systemische Coaching-Ausbildung in den jeweiligen Instituten auf. Die Teilnehmer auf Team-Lead-Ebene absolvierten das erste von drei Modulen zu Führungsgrundlagen und bewerteten dieses mit der Note 1,1 (sehr gut).

Diese positive Rückmeldung hat diva-e im Modulaufbau und der Trainerwahl bestärkt. Bemerkenswert ist auch, dass zwei Teilnehmer in der Zwischenzeit bereits ihre erste Führungsrolle antreten und durch das Programm somit eine perfekte Begleitung für ihren Start als Führungskraft erfahren konnten.

Im Herbst 2020 startet nun der zweite Jahrgang des Leadership-Programms. Um das Programm dauerhaft für den laufenden und insbesondere den folgenden Jahrgang in Bezug auf Aufbau, Ausrichtung, Inhalt und Struktur zu optimieren, holt das HR-Team regelmäßig Feedback bei den bisherigen Teilnehmern ein und informiert alle Mitarbeiter über verschiedene Kanäle über die Möglichkeit, sich für das Programm zu bewerben.

diva-e erhielt nicht nur Auszeichnungen für den schnellen Recruiting-Prozess und das Leadership-Programm, sondern wurde auch für die attraktiven Benefits für Mitarbeiter, die Employer Branding Strategie, das Chat-Recruiting und das Karrieremodell mit Stevie Awards in Silber und Bronze honoriert.

Data Analysis at Lightning Speed with GigaSpaces

Posted by Hailey Roos on Tue, Jul 28, 2020 @ 10:11 PM
  • Accessing data through GigaSpaces accelerates the operation by up to 100x, meaning that analyses can be processed in minutes instead of hours.
  • GigaSpaces solves the problem of processing rapidly growing data from different sources by seamlessly accessing external data stores to improve the efficiency and streamline business intelligence. 
  • By interacting with data as it streams through the network in real time, users of GigaSpaces can proactively enhance network performance to improve customer satisfaction and to prevent technological slowdowns and glitches. 

About GigaSpaces

GigaSpaces provides the fastest in-memory computing platforms for real-time insight to action and extreme transactional processing. With GigaSpaces, enterprises can operationalize machine learning and transactional processing to gain real-time insights on their data and act upon them in the moment for mission-critical applications across the globe.

gigaspaces-logo

GigaSpaces AnalyticsXtreme, launched in February 2019, accelerates analytics running on real-time and historical data, thus enabling companies to generate smarter, faster insights for better business intelligence on big data. More efficient queries, analytics, and machine learning on live data enriched with historical data can have a huge impact on several time-critical applications.  These include predictive maintenance, live risk analysis, fraud detection, dynamic pricing, personalized services, customer 360, and location-based advertising.

Using AnalyticsXtreme to access information stored on data lakes is accelerated by up to 100x, and batch analytics can run in minutes instead of hours. For example, when stock market data was streamed using AnalyticsXtreme to speed up searches on data lakes, queries were completed in six milliseconds instead of 2.5 seconds—100 to 400 times faster. This time reduction can have a huge impact on trading profitability that requires split-second buy and sell decisions.

How It Works

AnalyticsXtreme accelerates analytics by providing a unified speed layer over different data storage technologies (Hadoop, Amazon s3, Azure Blob Storage) on premise, cloud and multi-cloud. With AnalyticsXtreme, all types of data (structured, unstructured, and semi-structured including tables, key-value, objects, documents, text, graph, images, etc.) is ingested into a multi-model speed layer, reducing the need to stream the data multiple times and accelerating processing by reducing the operational overhead. By co-locating business logic and data, events are processed as they enter the system, resulting in a reduction of multiple network hops and overhead.

A vast array of industries can benefit from this extreme transactional and analytical processing. Insurers can perform a continuous risk analysis to determine the optimal premiums for policyholders. Loan approvals can be executed in near real time. Online retailers can ingest, store, and analyze huge amounts of data about competitor’s offers, personal preferences, and more to generate best offers. Customer service applications can automatically transfer calls to the most relevant agent and then provide answers based on responses to similar requests. Transportation companies can use a live view of vehicles and operators to optimize routes and to protect the personal safety of their passengers. By interacting with rich, real-time data as it streams through the network, telecommunications companies can proactively enhance network performance to prevent customer frustration due to a lack of coverage, slow page downloads, and stuttering video.

GigaSpaces’ COVID-19 Response

Meeting the expectations of the “customer of now” will require advanced technology that can deliver actionable personalized information at split-second speeds. Real-time analysis is an essential capability, enabling organizations to deliver excellent customer experiences and improve profitability. AnalyticsXtreme solves the problem of ingesting, processing, storing, and analyzing large and rapidly growing data from diverse data sources. It also seamlessly accelerates access to external data stores to improve the wisdom and speed of business intelligence. To provide better scaling and availability to ride out the COVID crisis, GigaSpaces offered a free Go-Live professional services package.

GigaSpaces won the Gold Stevie Award for New Product & Service Categories—Business Technology in The 2020 American Business Awards®.

Helping the Planet Recover with Essential Oils

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Mon, Jul 27, 2020 @ 11:04 PM
  • Essential oil industry leader sets high standards for sustainability, conservation, and community support. 
  • “All businesses should have a human focus and an environmental focus”. 
  • Young Living is more than an essential oil company - they exceed expectations in every way by creating a sustainable business model, aiding those in need, and caring for the planet and its inhabitants.

About Young Living

Young Living Essential Oils is a leader of the modern essential oil movement. Young Living was founded in 1994 by D. Gary Young, and since then, they have expanded into 29 worldwide offices that oversee 33 markets, 24 corporate-owned and partner farms, nearly 600 individual products, and more than 3200 employees. As the world leader in essential oils, Young Living’s vision is to bring the benefits of essential oils to every home. They take their industry leadership seriously by setting a standard for sustainability, conservation, and giving back to the community.

Celebrating Earth Day

Young Living declared an inaugural company holiday to give back to their local community. Around 2000 employees participated in service projects to cultivate gardens, plant trees, clear trash, and tidy trails. They have also partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to restore wildlife habitat by planting more than 5000 trees (on behalf of each Young Living team member) in Fishlake National Forest. 

Eco-Friendly Achievements 

In 2019, Young Living spearheaded many impactful efforts to protect the lives of those they touched. Last year, they increased focus on corporate and community sustainability efforts. In particular, the Spanish Fork warehouse reduced its waste to about 1% in just eight months. Open-top dumpsters were repurposed, and plastics, office paper, metals, pallet wrap, wood, etc. have their own bins for recycling, or turning into energy. 

Lehi employees moved into the brand-new global headquarters, which includes more than 20 eco-friendly features, including regionally-sourced construction materials, vehicle charging stations, and extensive recycling systems. As a result, Young Living was given LEED and Green Globe certifications, as well as the 2019 Utah Business Green Business Award. 

Last year, they also implemented a new water recycling program at their Utah-based farm, saving close to 260 million gallons of water per year, which earned the 2019 SEAL Award. The Green Team was created to not only lead green initiatives, but to support efforts in the community as well. This team participates in the Utah Sustainable Business Coalition with the mission to connect with other local businesses to implement sustainable practices. Young Living’s conservation efforts are ensuring that animals and their habitats are protected and preserved. Both the global headquarters and the Utah-based farm are home to milkweed waystations to support migrating monarch butterflies, helping to offset the loss of milkweeds and nectar sources needed. 

YoungLivingLogo_2020-01

Philanthropy

Each year they donate a portion of their proceeds from their Animal Scents products to benefit the Vital Grounds Foundation. Their mission is to protect and restore North America’s grizzly bear populations by conserving wildlife habitats. 

The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation led their 2019 global philanthropic efforts which impacted over 220,000 lives, raised $5.5 million in donations, and supported 86 organizations. 

The Young Living Academy in Ecuador educated 350 students in 2019, and celebrated the 21 graduates of the fourth graduating class.

By partnering with Hope for Justice, Young Living has impacted over 18,000 lives and helped end human trafficking and slavery. 

This nature-friendly company is continually growing deep roots in purpose, people, and our planet. As frequently quoted by the president and COO, Jared Turner, “We firmly believe that all businesses should have a human focus and an environmental focus”. Young Living is a purpose-filled company, fueled by what really matters - making the world a better place so we can all continue to enjoy nature’s living energy. 

Young Living’s COVID-19 Response

Young Living has stepped up their social responsibility efforts by partnering with several non-profit organizations to help those in need: 

  • They are working with Baby2Baby to fulfill needs for baby essentials and personal care items in family resource centers, homeless shelters, health clinics, and Head Start centers across the US.
  • They donated over 400lbs of food to the Utah Food Bank. 
  • They offered the use of their corporate Lehi Building to the Utah Department of Health as hospital overflow. 
  • Their Philippines office raised funds for the Red Cross to benefit front-line workers in the country.  
  • Employees have sown over 2500 fabric masks for use by employees in the Spanish Fork warehouse and for donation to the Navajo Nation Tribe. Operations continue, with additional masks being donated to local health care organizations. 
  • The D. Gary Young, Young Living foundation donated $100,000 to the International Rescue Committee’s COVID-19 response efforts which helps people impacted by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and regain control of their future. This is accomplished by providing aid in crisis-stricken areas to pave the way for long-term recovery in over 40 countries. 
  • Young Living donated over $200,000 to the Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund. 
  • They are donating Thieves hand sanitizer to fire and police departments, school districts, health care workers, and other vital support areas. 

Young Living won the Silver Stevie for Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year - At Organizations With More Than 2,500 Employees in The 2020 American Business Awards®.

Gould is an inspirational leader, always challenging those around him to seek out their passions, reach their potential, and make and achieve their goals.
