Why is the "Traveller" exactly the right model for you?
M: To be honest, we were all very surprised at how naturally we could move to the home office at that time and how flawlessly remote working worked. Some things even worked better remotely than in the office. (laughs) But we realised very quickly that personal exchange and togetherness are really essential for our business. We are very happy that we can combine the best of both worlds.
R: For us, the best of both worlds means that we work both on campus and remotely. We are always on site on the same two days of the week and have the option to work mobile on the other days. Through the office presence, we have direct, physical exchange with our colleagues every week and, as Marc says, this is essential for our work.
How do you use the two days on campus?
M: We have learned that there are different types of meetings - informative and productive ones. Informative meetings are usually more extensive, you bring your colleagues up to date and exchange information. These meetings work very well virtually. Productive meetings, however, are different. Here we want to create something together, discuss and review things. That works much better in person. On our two office days we want to concentrate on productive meetings and at the same time have enough time for exchange. Have lunch together again, drink coffee and spin ideas.
