Challenge

• Tacit technical know-how is vital for the success of Keller projects
• The international structure makes it difficult to exploit local talent globally
• Acquiring best talent is a key element of Keller’s strategy


 

 

Solution

• Implementation of Starmind for 1,000 users all over the division
• Full integration into the Keller Holding intranet
• Initial usage is smoothening the integration of new subsidiaries
• Decentralization of HQ services comes on top
 

 

Result

Improved talent acquisition through promoting new hires to access the full Keller Holding expertise from day one
• Tacit technical knowledge is made explicit and available to all employees on the Starmind network
• Move from star to network communication, i.e. 75% of answers are given by an expert in another country. 

As a decentralized and geographically dispersed organization, we have come to appreciate the benefits of Starmind. In particular, our young engineers have the opportunity to take advantage of the connected expert know-how of the entire organization from day one. This interactive and therefore timely learning and understanding contributes to the wellbeing of our customers, and consequently that of our company. This makes Keller Holding a particularly attractive employer for ambitious engineers who want to make a difference.
