The main theme of our operations in 2018 was Working together. We continued our KOHTAAMO coaching programme aimed at the Haaga-Helia community. The goal of the programme was to strengthen our internal cooperation and sharing of enthusiasm.
A key focus area in our competence development was to strengthen our skills in digital pedagogy. To that end, we launched the DigiPeda coaching programme for our personnel towards the end of the year. In order to strengthen our digital services as well, we implemented Sympa, a new HR system, at the beginning of the year and developed it further during the year. Sympa will serve our community in our strategic and daily HR processes.
In accordance with our strategy, strengthening the research, development and innovation activities and their prerequisites was also a key objective for us. We organised thematic coaching events ranging from brainstorming to financial instruments and project management. We also strengthened the RDI activities by recruitment and by decentralising RDI competence to different roles in our degree programme unit. In addition, we intensified the cooperation between the RDI activities and HR services in order to support the sharing and development of RDI competences.
We measure the preconditions of our strategy deployment regularly by means of personnel surveys. The results of the survey conducted in the fall helped us identify the shared strengths that we should foster and continue to focus on: Haaga-Helia’s bright future, support of vocational development, and management of one’s own work. Involvement and dialogue during change processes was highlighted as a development area. Based on the results, Fostering Haaga-Helia’s bright future – together is an important main theme in our operations in 2019. In strategy implementation we are progressing towards a continuous learning platform, and reforming education is a key development project for us. We will continue renewing our RDI activities in accordance with the strategic core competence areas. In our shared development projects, we will specifically focus on dialogue and diverse co-creation.

With regard to the planning of education and the RDI activities as well as work allocation, we will continue to develop our operating model and use the functionalities of new systems (Peppi and Reportronic as well as Sympa supporting the HR processes). The new structures and operating models call for renewal on our part, and we will support this process by means of measures defined in the competence development plan and coaching calendar, as well as through the management of working ability while a special emphasis will be on learning on the job.
