Our new office: OfficeHome instead of Homeoffice
As you may have read somewhere else (we informed all our customers and contacts via email) we recently moved to our new office. Fortunately, the way was not far, the newly built ITC2+ was built right next to our old home, the ITC2. Nevertheless, a change of address was necessary - the street is now "Hans-Obser-Straße 12".
But beyond the mere formality of the change of address, I would like to tell you here about the background of the move:
We were in the fortunate position of being able to hire 12 new colleagues during - let's call it Corona time. Fortunately, this was not due to compensating for departures; no one left our team during that time either. We are very pleased about this, for a number of reasons: On the one hand, it shows, when you look at the non-existent fluctuation, that we offer good framework conditions as an employer. On the other hand, we had been able to record good organic growth even in challenging times. We are very grateful for both.
We were faced with the situation at the beginning of 2020 that the existing office was not sufficient to offer all employees enough space five days a week. On the other hand, we immediately switched to 100% home office at the beginning of the pandemic. However, this did not simplify the decision we were faced with when we were offered the opportunity to move to a new office building, which was scheduled for completion in 2021, and if so, how large would be the space we would like to occupy there. I have already anticipated the result in the first sentence of this article: We have clearly decided to continue to rely on an office concept that places a lot of emphasis on space, ergonomic workstations and the best technical infrastructure, and above all an absolute focus on a communicative, varied, social environment.
In summer, access to the similarly dimensioned roof terrace, which - perhaps with a glass of wine - offers a view over our city of Deggendorf, is the opening of our office to the outside. Details like green oases, a creative space without any technology, a VR room and many other features complete the office concept.
