The flex.forward programme explained
As much flexibility as possible, gaining new experiences and constantly developing: Our HR department at Kaufland e-commerce has launched the flex.forward programme to make the KECs’ wishes a reality. It offers employees the opportunity to change teams or even departments – either temporarily or permanently.
Temporarily get a taste of life in another team and gain valuable experience:
As the name suggests, the flex.forward programme is designed to offer complete flexibility. That’s why there is the option to switch to another team for a maximum of three months.
The process begins with discussions between the employee’s Team Lead and the responsible HR colleague, as well as the potential new Team Lead and HR. Topics include the employee’s motivation to change and the new areas of responsibility.
Advice is also given about whether there are sufficient resources within the team to be able to show the employee everything without disruption. If this is the case and everyone agrees to the change, the three months can begin!
Manuela is currently taking part in the temporary flex.forward programme and has moved from Marketplace Controlling, which is part of Marketplace Management, to Online Marketing – or more precisely, to Marketing Engineering & Controlling:
