HOW DOES IT WORK?

SIGNING UP

Employees sign up for shadowing as either a “host” or a “learner”. They provide information about their department and positions, and state whether they’d like to show or learn.

Job Shadowing

The learner experiences a day with their host. They shadow the host’s daily routine or perhaps even take on a few tasks. In this way, they learn about the type of work involved in a previously unfamiliar area of the organisation.

Use cases

INTERNAL VACANCY FILLING

Filling vacancies internally has a number of advantages for companies. As well as saving money, it is often possible for them to find the right candidate more quickly than with external recruitment. At the same time, a change of role is associated with risks for both employer and employee. Job shadowing gives employees an opportunity to learn about the positions and roles they could potentially see themselves undertaking in the future. This engenders a sense of security, helps them feel good about their decision and facilitates the decision process.

OPTIMISATION OF INTERFACES

Improving communication, making information readily available and making better use of synergies: the enhanced exchange of information via organisational interfaces has a knock-on effect on cooperation. if an HR department is seeking to strategically exploit this effect, Mystery Job can play an important role.

EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT

Recruiting externally for management positions often presents a considerable challenge. If an existing employee is able to fill a leadership vacancy, things are often much simpler. In this regard, Mystery Job helps you uncover opportunities for employee development. Usually, you’ll be able to recognise quickly whether an employee is a good fit for a particular role. Unfavourable changes are avoided and human resources are better utilised.

JOB ROTATION

Job rotation increases flexibility, enhances interdepartmental understanding and promotes growth. Mystery Job can help by digitalising your job rotation programme. Our tool pairs up colleagues who are interested in a temporary “job swap”. In this way, you increase the level of dynamism in the organisation and open up new perspectives – all with minimal organisational effort.

CHANGE PROJECTS

Change always begins in the mind. Whenever a change process is pending, its ultimate success depends on a smooth, frictionless design. This functions best when employees have a view “from above” of the entire organisation – and are able to develop an understanding of its future strategic direction. Mystery Job can play a useful role in this regard.
