From 16-18 September, our team pitched its tents for the third time for a joint IT camping weekend. This year at the campsite in Dedenborn surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Eifel. At this quiet and undisturbed spot by the stream, our employees spent the entire weekend in a cosy atmosphere with delicious food from the grill, fun games and good music around the campfire.

The idea of the IT camp came about almost three years ago thanks to the commitment of our developers. Our technical departments make up the majority of our staff. Every day, they take care of the development of all the necessary tools to offer our customers tailor-made product solutions, to provide them with optimal support in technical challenges and to drive the further development of the company. Since close internal networking is always of great importance, the desire for a cosy but at the same time adventurous “come together” within the framework of a camping trip arose. The original idea quickly developed into a fixed part of our annual planning, and our other departments joined in. For our camping-loving colleagues, the IT camp has established itself as an annual highlight and has since become indispensable.

As a company, we naturally like to support the strong team spirit of our employees and are always happy to spend eventful hours outside of our offices, where we can learn, laugh and also simply switch off together. This is especially easy for us in nature!

On 23 September, the starting signal was given for the ninth Aachener Firmenlauf in Oberforstbach. For more than a decade now, the traditional running event has invited regional companies to compete with other companies in a sporting event.

For us taking part in the Aachener Firmenlauf has become a company tradition. This year, our colleagues Claudia, Jennifer, Katharina, Philipp, Robin, Erik, Marvin, Lars, Philipp, Daniel and David took part in the race for a good cause and mastered both the short and medium distances.

The rest of our colleagues supported the runners at our meeting point in front of the starting line with plenty of snacks, drinks and loud cheers. We are proud of our team, our cohesion and the challenges we master together – whether at work or while running! We rounded off the successful afternoon with cool drinks at the barbecue and were able to toast once again to a successful team event and the great achievements of our runners!

This year’s Aachener Firmenlauf enjoyed a total of 6,000 runners from 400 companies who took to the starting line for a good cause. This supports various projects in the region that promote health, exercise, prevention, integration and non-violence. Thus, the event is not only fun for us, but also a meaningful cause in which we are happy to participate and which we will certainly support again next year under the motto “Running wireless by m3connect”!
