Learning and Feedback Assistants
New applications provides support to teams: Survio creates smart questionnaires, and Mentimeter is used for interactive presentations
urvio, a start-up in the Czech Republic, offers an easy-to-use online platform for creating questionnaires. It also includes distribution and complete answer analysis tools. You may create your own questionnaires, or you can use templates. They can be placed on the Web or Facebook profiles, and results can be monitored in real time. “We’re introducing the Survio application to all employees from June onwards, as the demand for surveys and questionnaires at the carmaker keeps growing. It is a modern platform for creating questionnaires, which can be completed from computers, as well as smartphones and iPads. Our department will provide system support for this tool and will manage access to it”, explains Michaela Navrátilová from the SB/4 – Digitisation and HR System Support department.
Education through gaming
Mentimeter is a rapidly growing Swedish start-up and has devised a program for creating presentations that allow real-time responses. Its benefits are clear at a time when people are working and learning remotely. For example, the application expands online collaboration during learning with an opportunity for students or public to answer questions anonymously. Another benefit involves content sharing in real time via mobile devices during presentations and surveys or when looking for ideas during discussions, meetings, lectures and conferences. “We’ve been using Mentimeter for about a year; so far, we’ve used it in a limited mode during classes. However, we expect to use it throughout the entire company in the future. One of the great expansions is so-called gamification, which is the use of interactive game elements. The second benefit is anonymity, which also allows less communicative or more introverted employees to provide us with feedback during our courses. Last but not least, we use the application as a kind of light-weight anonymous questionnaire system; for example, when we collect responses and evaluations after a one-off event, meeting etc.”, describes Vilém Nájemník from the SE – ŠKODA Academy department. How do the specified game elements work? For example, if the lecturer wants to strengthen the memorisation of some knowledge during his course, he will organise a competition among the students, and they can then look for the right answer in real time. In this way, they will better retain the new knowledge. RED
How to start using the applications
Those interested in using this application have to complete an electronic application for membership in a corresponding LDAP group, which provides both internal and external employees with Survio administrator rights. The administrator can then create and manage questionnaires or use the tools to distribute and analyse them without any restrictions. The department will pay EUR 150 a year to use the application. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
The application currently operates in a pilot phase with a limited scope. If you are interested and would like to try it out, contact the ŠKODA Academy, where they will discuss everything with you and show you the options. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Novelties in the KOMPAS System
The new personnel system is constantly expanding. Read what is new.
he KOMPAS personnel system began to serve the ŠKODA employees in the second half of August last year, and since its launch, it has included functions referred to as managerial and employee self-service. Employees and their supervisors can operate them completely independently from their work and private equipment. Already at the start of the system, it was possible to manage one’s selected personnel data, and the latest version features additional functions (see “What data can you manage in KOMPAS Employee Self-Service”). ”As a new function, immediate supervisors can use Managerial Self-Service to enter team position changes, for example, or extend a contract for an indefinite period. It is no longer necessary to issue a request for personnel changes for these tasks. Another interesting novelty, which arose from the initiatives in the “Reducing the administrative burden of foremen” project, is the merging of information on one’s displayed tariff level and its financial amount”, describes Jana Šturmová from SB – Operative HR Care, Digitisation and HR 4.0. The KOMPAS team will welcome any feedback, which it will use to continuously improve the next version. Send your suggestions to email@example.com. ED
