After practicing social distancing for almost 1 1/2 years and using every possible form of remote communication, the time has finally come: Scandio meets in “real life”! And even the weather matches our plans. Great!
The reason for our celebration? Scandio is coming of age!
Scandio has been consulting companies on digitization and developing customized software for its customers for a whole 18 years now. In the meantime, Scandio has grown to more than a hundred employees, not all of whom yet know each other personally through Corona. That needed to change!
Since the Corona numbers were at their lowest, we decided to not celebrate remotely this time, but on site in a very special location to enable the many new Scandians to meet face-to-face for the first time. What was not even worth mentioning 1 1/2 years ago, now caused quite a tingle in the belly!
Even the day before, a lot of new faces were bustling around our Munich office - to celebrate with us, some Berlin colleagues took the 5-hour train ride and seized this opportunity to get a whiff of Munich office air.
At 3 p.m. on Friday, a whole bunch of us set off from the Munich office for our venue: the Backstage in Munich. Known for big concerts and wild parties, we opted for a separate, sheltered part of the jungle-like beer garden. Equipped with a large flat screen and microphone, our CEOs Christoph and Christian opened the festivities with our quarterly meeting and presented the facts and figures of the last three months, as well as an outlook into the future of Scandio. All of that was accompanied by demonic screams and guitar sounds straight from hell - in the concert hall next to us, the sound check of a death metal band was in progress.
After this musically supported meeting, our newest Scandio shirts were handed out and the Scandians swarmed out to explore the area. Most of them came back equipped with burgers and beer. Small groups quickly formed at the tables and throughout the beer garden area, and new and old colleagues curiously got to know each other.
This little get-together showed once again that Scandio thrives on personal encounters and can never become a purely remote company, nor does it want to. For a few hours, we were able to leave Corona routines behind and get an idea of how colorful and diverse Scandio already is and will become. Here’s to the next 18 years!
This way to the jobs
