Why Our Tandem
We understand the complexities of global enterprise and that Our Tandem needs to sit as part of an ecosystem. That’s why we ensure that Our Tandem, a new performance management system, naturally sits in the flow of your work, integrating with core HR systems, Microsoft Outlook and your ERP systems.
Our history lies in specializing in the area of behavioral change and which has influenced not only the design of our product but also our unique change management approach. We know that technology in isolation cannot truly drive the level of behavioral change required for an inspiring culture at a global level. That’s why we’ve designed the ‘Tandem Way’, an adoption methodology that will enable and sustain the behavioral change required.
Coming from the world of HR solutions, we understand the many competing priorities that demand your time. That’s why we’ve made the onboarding program an easy means of getting you started with your culture today and navigating you through each stage of the journey. We’ve met a lot of clients who were concerned they weren’t ready but that’s our job, to get you ready, no matter what your starting point is!
