40 students from the Factory Web School and partner colleges (PSB, Paris School of Business, Strate) took part in this new challenge from 7 to 9 April. For 36 hours, the students, in teams of four to five, devised and designed innovative solutions based on the theme of standardising the welcome for new employees.
The solutions they came up with demonstrated great ingenuity and creativity. Three of them were awarded prizes by Korian:
First Prize: the “K Box”, to facilitate the integration of new employees
This proposed welcome kit will enable new employees to access their job description, task list and patient/resident files etc. using a connected pen.
Second Prize: “Korian Konnect”, to put temporary contract workers in touch with Korian facilities
This project is an internal social network for all temporary contract workers wishing to work in Korian facilities.
Third Prize: “Klimber”, to acknowledge care personnel at Korian facilities
This project is based on the Facebook social network and will enable residents/patients and families to share messages and “likes” with Korian caregivers.
These three projects will be studied in depth then prototyped and tested with a view to their implementation at Korian facilities.
“This interaction with the young ultra-connected generation, with its boundless imagination, accelerates innovation. These young people bring a new, creative vision to current processes and problems, using all the possibilities provided nowadays by digital and other technology. Thanks to this revitalised outlook and experimentation, we are constantly improving the welcome for our clients and employees alike in our retirement homes and clinics,” says Sophie Boissard, CEO of the Korian Group.
