TNO - innovation for life

The Challenge

TNO is a major player in a growing international network comprised of leading scientific institutes, companies with ambitious development profiles, universities and other partners in knowledge.

 

Employees at TNO are typically top experts in their field and are very committed to their job, which is more than just work for them. This can sometimes lead to "tunnel sight", and in order to open them up to expanding their skills in areas outside their typical domain, they had to be able to take charge of their own performance and development.

This could only be achieved through digitalization and the introduction of appropriate processes.

Why Lumesse?

A low total cost of ownership was important, but the crucial factor which made the difference in the end was that Lumesse offered a real strategic partnership. Lumesse was not only trying to sell a solution, but also made sure that with its solutions TNO's business goals could really be achieved.

 

TNO was looking for a comprehensive Performance Management functionality, which Lumesse offered. In addition, Lumesse’ s continuous feedback approach noticeably distinguished it from other solutions. Its approach with regular feedback cycles is embedded in the system and helps to significantly increase productivity and employee development. The percentage of employees who had an integrated performance and development plan increased by 25%. Managers got a full picture of the performance data for all their employees which enabled them to support them in their professional development.

 

“Lumesse Empower is really built from an end-user perspective, like consumer software, and this is exactly how our employees expect it to work.”
