City Cycling - Cycling for a good climate - at QFS

Logo City Cycling- Cycling for a good climate

Since the 4th of July the QFS team is collecting cycling kilometers. Almost all colleagues are registrated and they are writing down their covered distance by bike online every evening during the next three weeks. With, Naviki, a route planner, the kilometers and with a conversion table the actual patrol and money savings because of riding the bike instead of taking the car are calculated. The overview of covered distance by person is motivating, some colleagues even become ambitious in this "competition". Everybody who takes part in this event is not just protecting our climate and doing something for health but also can benefit from discounts in local restaurants and bicycle shops.

Workshop: "Intercultural Basics" and QFS summer event

Intercultural Workshop culture dimensions

2016-06-10, Landhauscafé, Wolfratshausen and Deininger Weiher, Germany – All employees of Quality First Software took part in the cross culture workshop „Intercultural Basics” of the Cross Culture Academy. The QFS customers from different cultural areas were differentiated by “culture dimensions” that are relevant for business context. The goal was talking about the different behavior and communication patterns of the countries and defining possible interaction and action strategies. Dr. Sylvia Schroll-Machl discussed our concrete problems and illustrated her explainings with a large number of examples. The cultural mirror was held up to us and had some aha experiences, for example how we seem as “Germans”.
This intercultural day was very enriching for the whole team. QFS rounded off this exciting day full of ideas for further international cooperation with the summer event at the sunny Deininger Weiher.

QFS at the 10th company run in Geretsied

10th Company run Geretsried

2016-06-08, Geretsried, Germany – Traditionally, some of the QFS employees and their family members took part in the 10th company run of the Business Forum Oberland. Who was not running on the track was supporting with loud cheers in the audience, as a photographer, cloths guarding, table squatters or beer- and pretzel bringer.

The colleagues from Leipzig were also actively involved, although  the much more exciting company run in Leipzig with 12,000 participants took place at the same time.

The weather gods smiled on the runners - interrupted the continuous rain for an hour - but less well with the organizers - "drowned" party with music and celebrities afterwards.

 

 


Wonderful view over Munich – OFS together on the roof of the Olympic Stadium

Olympic Roof tour of QFS

2016-04-20, Olympic site - Munich Germany. The staff of QFS was invited on the Olympic roof in Munich by Martina and Gregor Schmid in occasion of their birthdays.

After a short film about the stadium and its impressive tent roof the courageous QFS employees climbed on the roof of the Olympic Stadium. The sun was shining bright. All of us - well safeguarded – enjoyed the view over Munich and this special Olympic city tour. We brought this wonderful excursion day to a close in the beer garden that is at the foot of the Olympic Tower.
