Subtitle: NOVOMATlC uses innovative programs to promote contact with employees on parental leave and retirees. “NOVOMoms&Dads” starts today.
Gumpoldskirchen, April, 11 2018 (OTS) – NOVOMATIC is expanding its employee activities with the introduction of the “NOVOMoms&Dads” program. The move was prompted by the success of the “NOVOSilver-Family” initiative.
NOVOMATlC founded the network platform “NOVOSilver-Family” for pensioners in 2016. The objective of the initiative is to maintain contact with retired employees through regular meetings and activities. Then, in 2017, the “NOVOSilver Pool” was established as a talent pool for retired employees. Here, these former employees can continue to make their know-how available to the company and also stay in contact with former colleagues. In addition, it offers opportunities to step in for short assignments, e.g. as holiday replacement or in the event of increased workloads. “With the help of these innovative programs, we are able to preserve the experience of our pensioners and maintain their contact to the company. On the other hand, we can motivate talented people to engage in temporary work assignments and new challenges in order to further shape the future of NOVOMATlC and feel appreciated. We want to stay in touch”, says Dr. Klaus Niedl, Global HR Director of NOVOMATlC.
Kick-off for "NOVOMoms&Dads"
Due to the positive feedback on “NOVOSilver-Family”, NOVOMATlC has decided this year to establish an additional program for employees on parental leave. The internal network platform “NOVOMoms&Dads” was launched as part of the initiative to achieve an optimal compatibility of work and family life. At regular meetings – the first one will take place today, 11 April 2018 – employees on parental leave will be given the opportunity to follow the company's activities through regular first-hand updates and to stay in touch with other employees on leave as well as their own departments.
“The success of these numerous innovative initiatives is also underscored by the current TREND ranking of the 300 best employers in Austria, where NOVOMATlC for the first time ever is ranked 4th in the services sector,” Niedl is pleased to announce.
