Since this year imc AG carries the TISAX® (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) label. TISAX® is an information security assessment which concerns a large part of the suppliers and service providers of the German automotive manufacturers and their subsidiaries.

Saarbruecken, January 2023

imc has successfully completed the TISAX audit to facilitate the exchange of information and data with customers in the automotive industry and to ensure their security. Every company that receives sensitive information from customers, such as VW, BMW, Porsche, Audi, Daimler or their subsidiaries, must in practice be certified according to TISAX. Thus, TISAX has become a relevant competitive factor.

 

Roman Muth, Director Cloud Solutions & Architecture, is pleased that imc's efforts in the field of information security are now visible at a glance: "The TISAX label offers us the opportunity to compare our security standards with our customers quickly and easily from now on. The good preliminary work that my team has done in this area has contributed significantly to our ability to meet the requirements of the Information Security Assessment (ISA)."

 

The Information Security Assessment (ISA) is a set of requirements for information security based on key aspects of the international standard ISO/IEC 27001. It is used by companies both for internal purposes and for audits of suppliers and service providers who process sensitive information from their respective houses.

imc receives "Family-friendly company" quality seal

For the past ten years, saaris e.V., the government of the Saarland and the Saarland Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) have been honouring companies that make a special, credible and authentic commitment to the compatibility of family and career. This now also includes imc.

IHK familyfriendly company

Christian Wachter, CEO, imc; Sarah Pitzius, Personal Manager, imc; Ursula Kuningham, saaris e.V.; Dr. Frank Thomé, CEO, IHK

Saarbruecken, January 2023

imc has successfully completed the certification process to become a family-friendly employer. Project manager Ursula Kuningham of the "Servicestelle Leben und Arbeiten" (saaris e.V.) presented the corresponding "Family-friendly company" certificate in Saarbrücken on 12 January 2023.

 

For Sarah Pitzius, Human Resources Officer at imc, several aspects were decisive for the quick certification: "Firstly, our really flexible, hybrid working time model, which is particularly well received by parents," explains Pitzius. "In addition, we offer the possibility to work part-time during or even after parental leave - an offer that is very well received and is also used by fathers. In general, the proportion of fathers who take parental leave for longer than two months is steadily increasing, which we expressly welcome."

 

Saarland-wide, around 200 companies have been successfully advised and certified since 2013. Those who want the seal can apply to the responsible IHK "Servicetelle Leben und Arbeiten" at saaris e.V. and will be evaluated by them on five criteria: Flexibility of working hours, organisation and location; care for children, parental leave and re-entry; compatibility of work and care; communication and information; service and support offers. After two years, there is the possibility of re-certification.

imc receives eLearning Award for “Adaptive Learning”

The eLearning Journal has awarded imc with the eLearning Award 2023 in the category "adaptive learning". From more than 300 submissions from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the jury of the eLearning Journal awards innovative projects with showcase character in more than 50 categories.

Saarbruecken, January 2023

In the category "adaptive learning", the "Digit@l Fitness Check" was awarded, which imc developed together with a German car manufacturer to motivate and empower all employees to participate and actively shape the digital transformation.

 

The Digit@l Fitness Check is a responsive, quiz-based digital learning module with the aim of arousing interest, motivating, imparting basic knowledge on topics of digitization and providing individual orientation on which learning opportunities are most relevant for an employee. To this end, the learning module uses a specially developed scoring system that provides learners with individual learning recommendations based on their answers. In this way, users can receive targeted and individualized training in line with their learning needs.

 

Since the training is aimed at all employees, the prior knowledge of the learners varies greatly. One of the challenges for the experts was therefore to anticipate and compensate for the possible overload with the large selection of offers. "The feedback shows that the learners are enthusiastic about the novel form of knowledge preparation," explains Sven R. Becker, Board Member of imc. "The deliberately provocative implementation of a „Fitness Challenge“ fits very well with the client's corporate culture and was particularly well received by younger target groups."

Further information

For the 13th time, the eLearning Journal 2022 jury will present the eLearning AWARD. With over 300 project submissions, the interest in the eLearning AWARD was unbroken. In the end, state-of-the-art projects prevailed in 50 categories. If you would like to learn more about the awards, please take a look here.

imc wins silver at Brandon Hall Award for "imc Express" authoring tool

The Brandon Hall Group, the leading provider of excellence in Human Capital Management, has announced the winners of the "Excellence in Technology Awards 2022". The authoring tool imc Express won in the category "Best Advance in Content Authoring Technology".

Saarbruecken, December 2022

imc Express can be used without prior knowledge or app installation and with any end device. The extensive tool kit of design templates, image databases, surveys and much more offers a high degree of flexibility. The possibility of different output formats such as text or audio, as well as the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in Express, also help to achieve maximum productivity. Among other things, content can be translated by the software into almost any language in the world at the touch of a button.

 

The decisive factor for the development of this intelligent authoring tool was the ever-increasing demand for user-generated content in corporate learning - learning content created by employees themselves. The vision: with this software, everyone - from trainees to managers to factory workers - should be able to digitize knowledge quickly and easily and make it available to others.

 

The Brandon Hall awards were judged by an international panel of industry experts based on value to the business, technological innovation, unique differentiators, technical functionality and measurable results.
