What a turbulent year it has been so far. In March Corona put us completely into the home office and the uncertainty about what was in store for us was very great. Fortunately, we made it through the special time well, which puts us in a positive mood for the times ahead of us. That’s why it was time to get together outside of everyday work and celebrate the year and summer. So we went up to lofty heights.
Friday, August 28th, 2020 at 9 a.m. in Dresden: it is pouring rain. Nevertheless, we find ourselves at 10 a.m. at the Waldseilpark in Bühlau – hope dies last.
After the seat belts have been put on and the instruction is done, the sky suddenly tears open and the sun shines: what luck! Our team event and summer party can take place as planned. Together we slowly feel our way into the spheres of the climbing paths: first the easy level of difficulty, then the medium and then the Mega Fox – a zip line that has it all. If you dare, you have a wild ride through the climbing forest in front of you. Everyone is fully committed, we motivate each other and give each other tips on how to best master the course. Now that the sun is shining, it is quite exhausting! At the end of the day, some colleagues try their hand at the highest level of difficulty and mostly master it successfully. Only the shaky ladder is the undoing of one or the other – but a joint rescue operation also welds together.
After the climbing action, we stop in the Hubertusgarten and enjoy lunch. A toast will be given to our working student Minh, who is having his last day with us today. Our beloved colleague will finish his studies in another city and we will review the time we spent together.
In the afternoon, family and friends are invited to the Saloppe to toast the summer. It is important to us that our family and friends can experience who we work with. We use the time and play table tennis or Viking chess together, get to know each other from other sides and have dinner together. Friends, siblings and parents, but also our project partners can exchange ideas and get an insight into how we work together.
Punctually from 7 p.m. the rain starts again and reminds us of the sunny and wonderful day we enjoyed together. Shared experiences weld and allow us to continue to grow as a team. Because for us, work means a lifetime that should be fun!
