Manager as primary contact point

The manager is often the first source of information for employees to find answers to questions such as: "Is it possible to recuperate my overtime?” or “How many days of maternity leave am I entitled to?”. And there’s little more frustrating than to accidentally misinform your employees or to make false promises.

Umicore offers new managers an extensive Leadership Development Program. An important part of the program covers various HR domains, ranging from wages to annual leave. Even for the more experienced managers, it’s not an easy feat to stay up to date with the latest developments.

Hence the question: develop an online platform where on the one hand, current managers can quickly find the right and most up-to-date information on various HR domains, and on the other, new managers have a safety line that guides them through different HR topics in a fun and interactive way. As a consequence, managers will no longer need HR for the smallest HR-related question and only consult HR for the more specific and complex issues. #winwin
