Due to the current home office situation, almost all of the trainee-teams are faced with new challenges. Old tasks that were pending before Corona and were part of everyday life have been replaced by new tasks.
The Employer Branding team is currently revising the company presentation for trade fairs and school visits. It is also being considered to make school visits, which were usually always attended by trainees, online during the Corona crisis. This will at least partially compensate for trade fairs and school visits that would otherwise not take place.
A lot of planning is also required by the Onboarding team. There, processes such as “from customer to product” or “workshop processes” are revised. It is also necessary to plan which people will be invited to present these processes. A video format is also being worked on so that the presentation of the processes can also take place online. This will ensure that as few people as possible have to be in a room at the same time.
The question also arises as to whether workshops will be held again. The Internships team is currently taking care of that. If the workshops start again, it is planned when they will take place. New tasks have also been created for each topic area, and all presentations for the workshops have been updated. This ensures that future interns have a few exciting days during their time with the company.
Not much has changed in the Software and Systems team, and the members of this team can work reasonably well in the home office. They are currently working on migrating the Projectboard, and feedback from Christian and Kerstin was also included. In addition, everything has been made a bit clearer and easier to use.
The Social Media team was also not affected by the home office situation as much as the other teams. As before, the team continues to publish field reports and publish new blog posts. New for the Instagram team are the “Dinner for One Team” posts, of which new ones are published daily. These consist of dishes cooked by trainees and students, for which the recipe and the necessary ingredients are posted. It was also considered that explanations of certain company terms that are frequently used should be published to make it a little easier for new trainees to get started.
So you can see that despite the home office, all of the trainee teams still have enough work to do, and that the Corona crisis has also opened up new tasks that need to be mastered.
