<TreeView SelectedItemChanged="SelectionChanged">
  <TreeViewItem Header="Employee1" IsSelected="True">
    <TreeViewItem Header="Jesper"/>
    <TreeViewItem Header="Aaberg"/>
    <TreeViewItem Header="12345"/>
  </TreeViewItem>
  <TreeViewItem Header="Employee2">
    <TreeViewItem Header="Dominik"/>
    <TreeViewItem Header="Paiha"/>

  </TreeViewItem>
</TreeView>
