“We need to be willing to go completely new ways in HR.”

Matthias Malessa

People are particularly successful when their work content lies in the intersection of their skills and personal preferences. With the feedback tools of effecteev® this “sweet spot” is extended. Feedback enhances strengths and generates new learning impulses. I am very happy to accompany the effecteev® software team as a mentor and impulse giver.

For more than 20 years, I have been familiar with the discussion in the field of human resources management around the topic of personnel assessment and performance management. Actually, nobody really feels like it and most systems are not really useful. On the contrary, they cost time, nerves and a lot of money. Many instruments are either totally unfamiliar because they are too scientific, other tools lack the scientific component. The effecteev® team solves many of these problems. From the beginning, I was fascinated by how the software effecteev® transforms scientific findings around the topic of feedback in organizations elegantly and user-friendly into the digital world.

At CampusM21 we find the software-based approach of “instant feedback” exciting and important. The regular Feedbits® are small motivation components in everyday life and support communication in the real world. The combination of digital and face-to-face communication has been implemented really well with effecteev®.
