We are very happy to be working in a more and more international team. To support our employees to get along well in a non-native speaking work environment, we offer German and English courses for different levels through our language school as part of our benefit program. In this post, we collect some insights from sofatutor team members who are keen about learning German with sofatutor.
Employee Development is a driving force at sofatutor, and we strive for our employees to grow within our teams.
What does this mean? We support them in improving their existing competencies, but also in developing new skills. In this post we look at Viviana’s path, learning how Employee Development can look like at sofatutor.
Learning – one of sofatutor’s core values. In order to meet that company value, sofatutor offers various possibilities for their employees to constantly develop themselves professionally and personally. One of our favorites took place yesterday, November 22nd: the remote Conference Day. A whole day dedicated to learning from and teaching your colleagues – no matter if the topic is about company-related aspects or just about something that an employee is personally passionate about and wants to share their thoughts on it.
At sofatutor, learning and education are our top priorities – which is why learning is one of our company’s core values. Learning at sofatutor doesn’t just stop with pupils studying on our platform, employees can also benefit from regular training.
The motto “Employees train Employees” did not only apply during our conference day in April. On a smaller scale but with a pizza bonus, our Product and Tech team has started a series of learning events: At Lunch & Learn, team members, present interesting and latest topics in the areas of product and technology, which are then discussed in plenary with lunch and drinks.
Last week, on April 5th, everyone at sofatutor had the same appointment scheduled: Remote Conference Day… A day on which we could learn from and with each other. Learn about projects and structures of other sofatutor teams and about topics that are not specifically sofatutor-related.
„Hallo und herzlich willkommen in unseren Wohnzimmern, Schlafzimmern, Küchen und Arbeitszimmern.“ Denn auch wir bei sofatutor arbeiten seit Monaten im Home-Office. Zwar vermissen wir unser schönes Büro, die gemeinsamen Pausen und die kleinen Gespräche an der Kaffeemaschine. Aber wir haben das große Glück, dass wir unseren Büroplatz zu uns nach Hause holen können. Und nicht nur das: Wir haben sogar jüngst den ersten digitalen sofatutor-Conference-Day in unseren eigenen vier Wänden veranstaltet.
sofatutor unterstützt seit zehn Jahren Schüler/-innen beim Lernen. Das klappt so gut, da die sofatutor/-innen selbst gerne Neues lernen. So auch bei den sofatutor-Workshop-Days 2019.
Der Arbeitsalltag kann ab und zu durchaus stressig sein. Bei sofatutor haben wir den vergangen März genutzt, um Achtsamkeit zu üben, uns Zeit für uns und auch zum Meditieren zu nehmen.
