What are the working models of the future?
In doing so, I asked myself the question with two contributions: Are new working models better or worse? And what needs to change so that we can work more efficiently and better in the future?
The Swedes have once again demonstrated that here, working hours have been shortened from eight to six hours with equal pay, while employers in Germany are still struggling with part-time solutions and flexible working models. But many things work, you just have to do it.
Jobsharing: The transfer is important
Job sharing for example: Ursula Wischgoll and Isabel Stöckl have been sharing the press and public relations work of the Berchtesgadener Land Tourismus GmbH for eight years. At the time, Wischgoll convinced her boss by referring to benefits such as dual competences and permanent representation during vacation or illness. "With good organization, this works in every job and brings all advantages," Wischgoll is convinced.
It is important to have a meticulous handover protocol and a lot of trust: "With us, nothing is more important than the other, successes go to one common account" And Stöckl adds: "Part-time jobs are often not very appealing, job sharing enables me to work responsibly in an internationally known region.
Participation and family friendliness: trust counts
Trust is also an important aspect for Monika Hobmeier: Her Bader-Hotel in Parsdorf near Munich leads her democratically: "When I was working in Sweden, I had to swallow at first, that employees disagreed with the boss or brought their child."
Back in Germany she did that in her own Company um: "We discuss a lot, but decisions are implemented faster and employees take responsibility because they are behind it", is Hobmeier's experience. She sees herself more as an organizer than as a boss and is convinced: "Only in this way can teams handle complex tasks in the future." She has had positive experiences with mothers: "They are very flexible and can organize well."
The examples show how even extraordinary work models work. And they are forward-looking because more and more companies understand that motivated employees are an important competitive factor. To all the others said: Just try it out.
