Mystery Job lets employees spend a day experiencing the work of a colleague in another department
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Employees sign up to shadowing as either a “host” or a “learner”. They provide information about their department and position, and state whether they would like to show or learn.
Based on the criteria defined by you, our smart algorithm matches suitable colleagues and sends an invitation to both.
The learners experience a day with their hosts. 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.

INTERNAL VACANCY FILLING
Filling vacancies internally has a number of advantages for companies. As well as saving money, it is often possible for to find the right candidate more quickly than with external recruitment. However, 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 in in the future. This establishes 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.
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 quickly recognise whether an employee is a good fit for a particular role. Unfavourable changes are avoided and human resources are better utilised.
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 make the organization more dynamic and open up new perspectives – all with minimal organisational effort.
