IHK Pressebericht: easyfaM bringt Kind und Karriere unter einen Hut

Das IHK-Wirtschaftsmagazin hat in seiner Mai-Ausgabe 2019 eine halbe Seite zu den beiden Geschäftszweigen der easyfaM GmbH & Co. KG berichtet: Das Arbeitgeberprogramm für mehr Familienfreundlichkeit und das Endkundenprogramm für Familien. Mehr dazu im Artikel nebenan.

"The potential of our solutions for companies is enormous: more balance for mothers and fathers, fewer days of illness and absence, more time and energy for professional activity. For mothers in particular, it is a great opportunity to combine family and career more easily," says easyfaM founder Christian Eineder. Family stress keeps many employees from professional careers.

Companies can use easyfaM to create better conditions for families. The easyfaM tools bring modern working methods into family life playfully and with great success. Parents proudly bring these positive experiences back to the company. They help to shape new ways of working and change the communication culture. 

The practical implementation can look like this: The company provides its employees a privately usable access to the easyfaM online training course. Parents use the coaching and methods adapted for families by the two founders of easyfaM, Heidi and Christian Eineder, flexibly at home whenever they have time.

The methods include, for example, the BOFF feedback model and the 4-page communication square for improving the culture of conversation and communication. easyfaM also gives tips on good manners for children and young people, shares strategies in the area of time management (mindsets, routines, tricks, tools, etc.), gives tips on brain-compatible visualisation and structuring (mind mapping) and provides organisational tips for everyday life based on the Lean Management Method 5S (for example for organising the student's desk).

Parents learn how to reach goal agreements with teenagers "SMART" (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timed) and how to organize workshops on sensitive topics such as "media consumption and mobile phone time" even at home without arguing and sustainably.

"We are always open to other topics," says Christian Eineder and motivates companies to participate in the key topics.

The use of Kanban boards, usually used in many agile industrial processes, also facilitates the organization of everyday family life at home. easyfaM calls the Kanban board for families "Taskboard". Christian Eineder explains: "If companies make the taskboards available to parents, the following happens: At home, the agile methods are used playfully by parents and children and used to organize everyday tasks. The parents bring this experiences back to the company and vice versa - this creates a dynamic that is beneficial for both sides".

Christian Eineder advises managers in human resources departments and corporate health management on how to successfully establish the programme in their company.
