Viessmann is a global family with 12300 members. As is customary in our family, we value the talents of each and every member and encourage their development. However, we also expect each individual to take responsibility for their own progress. We use modern talent management tools and networks for this.
Digitalization and the energy transition are the big challenges facing our industry. Viessmann wants to lead the way in both, but we can only do that with committed, motivated, and well-trained employees. We want to take every Viessmann family member along with us on this journey and empower them to work on creating living spaces for generations to come. Every employee receives the support they need to develop accordingly, however, we also expect everyone to be proactive about this.
ViGrow rethinks talent development and skills management – from the perspective of all Viessmann employees. The personnel development tool offers intelligent, data-based solutions for employee development and strategic personnel planning. Individual career planning and the allocation of skills at the team, department, and company level are its main areas of focus. ViGrow should equally benefit all employees, managers, and the company’s fundamental strategic objectives.
The ViGrow system is based on comparing (matching) employee skills profiles with job requirement profiles: it gives every Viessmann family member the opportunity to compare their individual skills profile with the positions available in the company and thus plan their career for the long term.
ViGrow is a module-based system. Its two core modules are the Job Profiler and My Profile. The first is used to collect information on all existing positions in the company and the latter to record the individual skills profiles of all employees. My Profile populates data on the skills, which are carefully included and reviewed in the Feedback module. Managers are also simultaneously provided with an intuitive and meaningful guide for constructing their employee feedback. ViGrow thus helps create a direct and open but well-structured and qualitative culture of feedback. The Career Planner module is available to every Viessmann family member so they can plan their own career based on their skills profile. They can also match their own skills to the requirements profile for their own job and for all other vacancies within the company.
