“WOL can bring people and knowledge together on an empathetic level. It empowers each individual and consolidates knowledge through pooling. With WOL in Berlin, I am deliberately looking to reach beyond the boundaries of Daimler and bring people of any background or affiliation together,” says Michael Munke, employee at Mercedes-Benz Germany and an official WOL mentor.
Together with Timo Urso, Management Consultant Digital Performance, he brought the Meetup to our location at Mindspace Berlin. “We appreciate Michael’s work and dedication and support his mission and passion of #collaboration #networking and #newwork in the digital age. We look forward to more events with Michael and the #WOLBerlin Community,” said Urso.
The “Working out Loud” method can be applied both within a company or across companies. We also use WOL externally. Furthermore, Daimler AG is part of a group of WOL practitioners, which includes Robert Bosch GmbH, Audi, BMW, Continental, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Telekom, Kluge Consulting, Siemens Healthineers, ZF Friedrichshafen, and Deutsche Post/DHL, among others. This “Working Out Loud Community of Practice,” or WOLCOP for short, was even awarded the HR Excellence Award in 2017.
