HR Startup Award 2017: HUMANOO wins with a holistic health management solution

Friday, 2017, June 30

Berlin, 30 June 2017 –  The Quadriga University of Applied Sciences Berlin, the hkp /// group and the Federal Association of HR Managers (BPM) today honoured outstanding startups in the HR sector for the second time, as part of the Personnel Management Congress at the bcc Congress Center Berlin. HUMANOO was selected as the winner from the three nominated startups.

The HR Startup Award went this year to HUMANOO, as decided by the audience of the Personnel Management Congress, a leading and future-orientated conference for HR managers in Germany. The startup prevailed against two other companies nominated by a high-calibre jury: HRinstruments–  a feedback toolbox, and Talentwunder – an active sourcing solution that supports recruiting in companies worldwide.

HUMANOO offers companies a holistic health management solution. The physical and mental health of each user is determined and then customized training courses from the fields of physiotherapy, mental training, workouts and nutrition are recommended. HUMANOO aims to promote physical and mental health, increase wellbeing and reduce medical visits.

"We are delighted to win the HR Startup Award," says Philip Pogoretschnik, founder & CEO of HUMANOO. "With HUMANOO, we have managed to bring a digital product to the workplace through our gift box. This means that not only employees in the office are reached but also those who do not have company emails, such as those working on the shop floor".

Dr. Elke Eller, president of BPM and HR Startup Award jury member, says: “The digital transformation has fundamentally changed the work of HR departments. Digital tools can help us organize increasingly complex processes in companies more intelligently. Humanoo is such a tool. It simplifies processes and increases productivity, making it a worthy winner of the HR Startup Award.”

For Michael H. Kramarsch, managing partner of the hkp /// group and co-initiator of the HR Startup Award, the nominees and, in particular, the award winner are indicative of the future of HR: “Digitization changes processes, working environments and, in turn, companies. With the HR Startup Award, we are shaping this change by identifying and honouring promising solutions.”
