The "On Campus" model - with Annette

Annette and her team from Seven.One Production chose the "On Campus" model. In the interview, she shares with us, why they selected this model and what she values most about it.


In order to establish a modern, hybrid working environment and to consider the diverse requirements and needs of our colleagues, we have developed the four models On Campus, Traveller, Flexible and Highly Remote together with our employees. Each department decides on one of these working models and thus designs its own individual working concept. But what exactly does this look like?

In this blog post, we present the On Campus model in more detail, which has been chosen by Annette Dreher, Styling Lead at Seven.One Production GmbH, and her team. In this interview, she explains the reason why and shares what she personally values most about it.

Why did you decide on this model?

For certain activities at our company, it is simply not possible to work remotely. This includes, for example, large parts of the production area. In studio production, the daily work of presenters, directors, the camera team and other production staff takes place entirely in the studio. Due to their job profile, these employees spend most of their time on campus.

How do you live this model in concrete terms?

Although it is indispensable for the majority of our staff to be present on location, we have learned a lot from the last two years. For example, we are now represented in studio productions with significantly fewer staff members in the control room. There are also areas where we have only just learned that it is possible to work remotely - for example in post-production, i.e. video and audio editing. At times, a third of the staff worked from home. Some of them continue to work remotely. We are curious to see how this will develop.

What advantages does the model have for you?

From the beginning, it was clear to us that we would work in the production area in the "On Campus" model. But it was also important for us to have different sub-models depending on the specific area of activity and to use the flexibility of hybrid working where it makes sense. 

Personally, I also include working from home as much as possible in my daily work routine. Video conferences with cooperation partners and orders from various fashion brands are part of my daily doings and I can do them very well from home. However, we love the special spirit and life on campus and we wouldn't want to do without it.
