By moving in a larger office in the city of Augsburg, we not only gained more space, but also an outdoor area with a beautiful view of city gardens and huge trees. We plan to use the space for our breaks, but also for meeting or working outdoors. And, for the time after Corona, we hope to come together with our colleagues from all other offices as well as to welcome friends and visitors from elswhere. In keeping with our corporate culture, we want to have very good conditions for productive work in all of our offices, and create places where we enjoy spending time and meeting others. Many good reasons to set about making this outdoor area as beautiful and cozy as possible.
We are happy to be able to support organizations that do good and valuable work in aid projects with our Christmas Charity and in the name of our customers. We are also thankful for the positive feedback we receive from you on this project. This year we are happy to have made a donation to The Global Foundation For Children With Hearing Loss, an organization that aims to make a direct and lasting impact on young children living in developing countries who are deaf or hard of hearing by establishing the early identification, hearing technology, local professional expertise, and resources these children need to learn to listen and speak and achieve their full potential.
Say what you want about 2020, but this year was special. It demanded strong nerves, flexibility, and creative thinking from everyone at opesus. Qualities that we cultivated before and always like to use. Nevertheless, we were forced to approach the year in a different way than we were used to. We look back at 2020 with some wistfulness about missed personal encounters and the limitations that we had overcome. On the other hand, we are happy about the things that we managed and implemented together despite the challenges – with success, fun, and our personal touch.
In our virtual Winter Office Week, we once again dealt with many exciting topics. One session was dedicated to sustainability – a topic that is important to us. We also want to live up to our company name: opesus is made up of the words operative and sustainability. Good reasons to take a fresh look at old patterns of behavior and decide on some innovations to improve on our sustainability.
opesus has been successfully developing sustainability solutions for SAP since it has started in 2012. We had two customers at the time, and we are happy to say that both rely on us and our software until this very day. Many more customers in the form of well-known companies have joined us since then, so that we were able to reach the amazing milestone of “100 customers”.
