The HR Toolbox

Fit-for-purpose instruments for your employees & managers

Which challenges are you facing?

How do we develop, motivate & retain our employees?

How do attract the right talent and what do new recruits expect?

How do we create a fair, attractive and employee-friendly working environment?

Which leadership competencies do we need to ensure the success of teams and the organization?

How do we recognize & reward performance, (how do we sanction under-performance)?

Do we need a dedicated HR-role and which competencies does an HR-responsible need?

Compensation architecture and performance management via OKRs

We decided that OKR (Objectives & Key Results), a recent & more flexible approach to performance management, was fit for Njuškalo’s current set-up. It was also the best way to actively involve the entire organization in an ongoing dialogue over performance, over the things that really make a difference for the company, its employees and its customers.

In his 20+ years of working across Central & South-eastern Europe, Turkey and the Middle East, Michael has gained experience in expert, managerial and consulting roles.

Throughout his career Michael had managed HR-departments of various sizes, in start-ups as well as in corporate environments, primarily in the ICT & service industries. He worked on questions of strategic HR, compensation & performance management, talent management, on HR & management audits.

In his consulting practice he focuses primarily on organization design [in various industries] as well as on concept & strategy development in the food world and for non-profit organizations.

Michael has degrees in business administration [Vienna: 1996] and cultural studies [Istanbul: 2011] and an education in systems thinking & design [2015]. This combination, paired with his hands-on experience, allows for a rather unique perspective on what is happening in & with organizations.

His passion for good food and his interest in food practices and sustainable urban food systems, in particular, led to his civil society engagement with the Vienna Food Policy Council where he is one of the speakers.

The solutions he designed are fit for our purpose and future-proof. I truly enjoy working with Michael and can highly recommend his work.”
