The Flip effect: How MAHLE connects all employees
MAHLE has been using the Flip employee app for global internal communication since autumn 2020. The most important global and country-specific intranet news, the latest posts from management, and all press releases are shared via the app. This means that employees who do not have access to other digital channels at MAHLE, or who simply want to stay informed "in between", always have access to company information.
With just two clicks, information, pictures, videos and other file formats are shared to all employees – either worldwide, or limited to individual countries or even locations. In this way, the content reaches the relevant groups in a targeted manner; at the same time. With the employee app, all employees are always up-to-date across locations, regions and countries.
An interface from SAP-HR to the app has been in place since mid-2022, making uncomplicated access to the employee app at MAHLE available to all 72,000 employees worldwide. An initial password with uniform logic makes registration even easier for new users.
"One look at their mobile phone is enough and everyone is up to date. Our employee app informs all employees regularly, digitally, and mobile – regardless of where they work."
