The great employee events and joint activities. Since day 1, I have felt an enormously strong sense of cohesion and team spirit. For example, even before I started at the beginning of 2017, I was invited to the Christmas party so that I could get to know the entire workforce in person. The biggest highlight for me are the annual strategy meetings that take place in nearby countries such as Austria, the Netherlands or Spain.
2. What does a typical morning of your working day look like once you arrive at the office or open your laptop at home?
Before the workday can really start, I always make sure that there is enough water ready. Then I take the first look at my e-mail inbox. First, I look at my appointments and deadlines for the day and the coming days before reading and sorting e-mails. After that, I prepare my to-do list for the day and think about which activities I will tackle specifically and when.
On stressful workdays, I like to do a short relaxation exercise (3-5 minutes) in the afternoon. For this, I have a deck of cards that provides stimulation and guidance for various exercises. During the lunch break or after work, I regularly take a walk in nearby parks or along the Rhine to get some fresh air and shake off any stress.
Thanks to the very good working atmosphere and the friendly, always open and competent colleagues, I have been excellently integrated into the team since the very first day.
