One app for jobs and more
When, in the course of its digitalisation campaign, Pfeifer was looking for a means of communication that would connect people and be equally available to administrative and production staff, the idea for a dedicated app was born. It was to deliver important information and news directly to the employees’ smartphones – with the great advantage that the app is mobile and accessible around the clock, regardless of the area of operation and working hours, and allows for targeted, authentic communication with the employees. After its launch in March 2021, ‘myPfeifer’ was successively rolled out at all eight Pfeifer Group locations and deliberately offers a broad range of topics: There's a place for everything regarding ‘Jobs & more’ in the app. For one, editors at the locations regularly update the feed with relevant news. Secondly, it offers registered users important items such as shift schedules, information on occupational safety, a way to quickly connect with the HR Department, an employee directory, calendar and much more. “myPfeifer enables us to quickly inform all employees about news from headquarters or their own location. A meeting place with classifieds serves as a platform to network with colleagues outside of work-related topics,” Alexander Sedlak, myPfeifer Project Manager, explains. The app thus makes for an interactive tool that invites people to participate in discussions. Feedback can be obtained via surveys or in the comments on the articles. Discounts, promotions and competitions round off the attractiveness of myPfeifer.
