The Flip effect: How EDEKA Südwest connects all employees

EDEKA Südwest has already been using Flip in personnel development for internal communication with dual students since 2018.

Until now, access to internal communication offers during the theory phases at the universities was often associated with hurdles. When the Corona crisis hit, for example, and organizational changes had to be made, the students could now all be reached easily with the help of Flip, and they were quickly informed about the next steps throughout the pandemic. The app is thus a suitable supplement to the classic channels that are often heavily used in retail, such as the bulletin board or direct communication with superiors. In the meantime, EDEKA Südwest also uses Flip with its trainees as well as a seminar group in the area of further education. Edeka Südwest is convinced by the simple integration and usability of the app.

"The App is so intuitive and easy to use that Flip was used immediately. We think it's an important step in our increasingly digital internal communications strategy."
