20 years ago, we were one of the first product development offices to successfully implement quality management. A lot of time has passed since then and countless optimizations have been implemented - the working environment and the (digital) tools and processes have also changed and updated again and again during this time.
Last year, we focused heavily on the topic of digitalization and were able to implement a number of simplifications in our administrative processes.
To this end, we have established a powerful online system in the area of HR management with the PERSONIO software, which professionally processes the application process in recruitment as well as the growing volume of employee data and documents it in compliance with the GDPR. With MyDATEV, we offer our employees paperless payroll accounting via online access. We were also able to significantly expand the functionality of our AVERO time recording system so that we can map flex office times, business trips and absences such as vacations or flexitime as a digital workflow.
The workflows and processes relating to occupational safety and the management of safety data sheets and hazardous substance handling were also updated and two employees were trained as safety officers.
The topic of data security and the use of increasingly cloud-based software and the associated security aspects such as two-factor authentication and access management were also considered and defined in supplementary processes and routines.
We are pleased that we continue to manage the balancing act between an agile and creative way of working and yet clearly defined processes and structures without too much bureaucracy, and are proud to have successfully passed this year's audit again.
