What do “Wälder”* traditional crafts and employee coaching have in common?

Bernhard Dünser

In the spring of 2017, Bernhard experienced our work during an internship. Now we were able to win him over as a colleague in the BIC.

He enriches our team with this special sense of humor, his experience and his expertise in the areas of employee service and employee coaching. Welcome aboard and good luck in working with us and all colleagues at Blum!

Fresh international impulses for our BIC-Team

In connection with our own OD-process we have discovered that we need support in the following areas:

  • International Coaching
  • Social and economic trends and developments
  • Organisation and service
  • Knowledge and learning

Now we are happy that we have found 4 international team members as personnel reinforcement to support us in all upcoming topics and challenges in the fields of personnel- and organizational development.

Welcome!

Reading tips …

Published on 19. December 2017

Here are two reading tips:

(If I understood you, would I have this look on my face: “Worth reading. Entertaining, helpful and full of examples, that we all have experienced in personal communication and that we sometimes wish to not happen again.”

Nonviolent Communication: “A very enriching book with various perspectives and useful tips & tricks. It would make a good coexistence much easier, if the right people were about to read it “- Udo Kracke)

Find the place you need …!

Published on 27. February 2017

We try out a new approach – and invite others to watch us at work!

A few months ago we declared our Personnel Development Department a “flexible work area”. Shortage of space and the need for communication zones and marketplaces prompted us to rethink our approach and not kit out the free space with desks. We’ve dispensed with a rigid grid and introduced various working zones. Under the slogan “Find the place you need”, our employees now use the space they find most suitable for the tasks in hand. In the middle of this flexible work area, we have five “permanent workplaces”, so we’ve created a mixed office landscape. The first outcome is that we have far more different layouts for work and collaboration within the same office space. We believe this is a good start. But the new approach has not only created more possibilities. It has also given us the opportunity to reflect on various questions:

  • Is my daily search for a workplace liberating or does it impede my productivity?
  • Does this freedom increase or stifle creativity?
  • Does this mode of work promote or reduce dynamism?
  • Is it beneficial or detrimental to team cohesion?
  • …..

We are glad to share our experiences and impressions with various departments from BLUM, whose teams have already visited us and watched us at work! – HomePage Editorial Team –

“Scrum – but” …

rugby_team_newsblog_enAn inspiring form of agile collaboration. We’ve tried out and varied the Scrum format for personnel development using different topics and different settings. We ourselves were greatly surprised by the positive results. “Scrum – but” … – for more information go to Insights.

From time to time we welcome interns in our team, not only from Austria but also from other countries around the world. Based on their personal and educational background and professional experience we involve them in various topics and let them work autonomously in a specific field of interest and in a given frame. Actually Ana is joining our team for three months and for this time our mutual language in meetings and conversations is English.

Here are some impressions of the tour with the team and a funny evening at an alp called “Gsohl” in Vorarlberg (editorial team):gsohl_schattenfiguren

This cooperation with the main focus on personnel and organizational development is for us a good example how new perspectives can be created on both sides of a partnership.

In an interview for the company magazine of our partner Van Hoecke/Belgium, Urs Bolter (Blum International Consulting) gives an insight to his work as a consultant around the globe.

International teamwork

Published on 10. May 2016

Weltkarte_englisch

Our core team at Blum International Consulting gets regular visits from employees from our subsidiaries’ HR departments. This was the case in early April when Amanda Moore (Blum USA) and Allen Carter (Blum UK) came to Hoechst.

These visits prompt an intensive exchange of knowledge and experiences – the office is like a beehive. Meetings and chats during breaks are conducted in English, mixed in with a few words of Vorarlberg dialect. This is how our guests gain an insight into our day-to-day activities, find out more about the issues we deal with and familiarize themselves with our culture. This allows us to continuously come up with new ideas and jointly develop input on how to translate personnel and organizational development into practice at Blum.

Besuch BXXOur intensive exchange of knowledge and experiences over a short period of time produces synergies and allows us to lay the foundations for effective collaboration.

Laid-back evening: Panorama Restaurant Karren / Dornbirn

These visits are valuable experiences for us all – both in our professional and personal lives. They are a great opportunity for us to actually implement the concept of cross-border networking and international collaboration.

Together we are strong! (editorial team)
