A remote control is an electronic device, most commonly used for operating a television wirelessly from a distance. Every remote team manager, and business men who work in a close relationship with partners from different countries, dream to have similar remote control for their team sitting in different parts of the world.
This is where everything starts going wrong! You don’t need a remote control device – you rather need a remote support set for this. This means that the manager will himself have the right buttons like “knowledge, tools and techniques” to adjust to various settings i.e “communication, technology, processes and cultural differences within his team” in order to manage, lead and empower his remote team effectively.
This is what our unique program-package is about.
We believe that intercultural competence should be understood as part of knowledge management and company-specific tacit knowledge. It should be understood as a tool of strategic thinking and planning, as a source of competitive advantage and added value that builds on the benefits of diverse approaches. The development of these skills and competences should be started as early as possible to establish this culture within the organization, to create the “Remote Support” tool. The program includes development elements for both the leaders and the employees of multicultural teams customized for their specific conditions and needs. The most interesting part of the package is that it was created in a multicultural environment by a remote team. Throughout its development, we had an opportunity to ourselves to try and test all the concepts, tools and techniques that are incorporated in this program.
"...In the fall of 2009 the people turnover reached 25% within a half a year, also several key people had left the company, this has caused significant problems for us. This situation had almost affected the operability of the company. At this point we made a decision to start a Talent management and Key Employee Retention program. The project started out with workshops and consulting work involving the full management... I considered the measurability and return of the program to be very important. We set concrete objectives at the very beginning and we measured the extent of their achievement. We expected Develor to make significant changes in the KPI's we set. They were to bring down the volume of people turnover, which was 25 % in the second half of 2009 to below 10%, and to improve the internal Employee satisfaction index that was on 48%. The results of projects showed very fast. In the first half of 2010 the people turnover became 5%, and at the Employee satisfaction survey we moved up to the first place from the very last on an international level with a 76 % result. All this happened within a half year after the launching of the project. Based on these tangible results we continued the collaboration which still in live."István Katus, Alcoa - CFO, Director, European Financial Services & Finance Hungary

"Based on positive experience with DEVELOR Hungary and the discussions with the general manager and HR manager at the COLAS group in Slovakia we had decided to start the cooperation in training and development at our employees in 2013. During our 2 year cooperation we have implemented two key projects - series of workshops “Safety Attitude“ for our site managers and the talent development program ‘Leadership Academy.“ On top of these programs we also implemented the presentation skills development program for the management team.
We perceive our cooperation with DEVELOR positively and we can recommend their service and approach to other companies In Slovakia. We consider DEVELOR‘s biggest benefit their ability to transform out requirements into quality training program and at the same time focus the attention and accent on the priorities at the company and its business goals."Kvetosiava Sarvašová, HR manager - Colas ISK
„Develor Bulgaria delivered a training with subject ’Successful Project Managers’ on the 9th and 10th of November 2010 for employees who are project managers besides their jobs as engineers. They have also realized a series of projects for communication skills for introducting employees at the end of year 2008… The training put accent on practical exercise and finished with feedbacks from participants whose satisfaction with the training was very high. There was homework in the form of a questionnaire in which they had the chance to recollect and assimilate fundamental moments from the training. Within the first week after the training we have observed participants applying concrete elements from the training in everyday work. We consider that the training was helpful and plan to upgrade on this base with training after 6 to 8 months.”Liliana Georgieva, Human Resources Management Specialist - Festo
“Safety is of high importance to our managers, but it is worth nothing if the necessary contact and attention to - ward each other is missing. This is why I liked how the trainers of DEVELOR pointed out the role of different factors in the occurrence of a tragic event, and how it could have been avoided through be - ing in contact with the players and through maintaining steady attention. The real-life exercise was great too. (…) The training was very useful and I certainly recommend it to others as well! ”Róbert Bóna, Mine Director - Visonta Mining
"A comprehensive development program of the company Develor Slovakia for the call centre operators had a positive impact on increasing the quality of the provided services and markedly strengthened the selling skills of our operators. The trainings tailored to the needs of our operators reflected concrete experience of trainers of the company Develor Slovakia in the insurance business and the telephone sales and services. We will gladly use their training and coaching services in future, as well."Žaneta Križanová, Director of the Allianz Direct Department - Allianz
