Please tell us about your journey at OI

I started working at OI in the first half of 2018 as an HR Trainee. I worked on recruitment, learning & development and HR projects. During my traineeship I was also able to join our Train-the-Trainer program, which solidified my interest in people development. Since becoming a full-time employee, I’ve been working with our People Development Manager to lead engagement projects, design training and work on our Learning & Development strategy.

What do you like about working here?

I love working at OI because I'm given a lot of opportunities to take on a variety of different projects. We are encouraged to take on projects that matter to us personally as well as support business objectives. For example, the topics I've created for our e-Learning platform allow me to creatively provide micro-learning on a global scale. This gives an extra level of purpose to what I do.

What makes OI special?

OI is special because of its people. Our focus on driving collaboration and encouraging global teamwork makes OI stand out.

OI has been a continuous learning experience for me. At every stage of it I feel like I have undertaken great personal adventures while at the same time inspiring so many new ideas in others. The global responsibilities are what fascinate me most at OI. Here, I can grow personally and professionally likewise.

What do you like about working here?

OI has a work culture that strongly supports independence and for everyone of us to lead themselves - this is what motivates me every day. I am a person who likes to work diligently together with my team and colleagues and OI provides and supports this open-minded and trusting work environment.

What makes OI special?

It is the creativity within OI, the excellent working culture, the independence level of roles and the flexibility of time and work arrangement including home office!

Please tell us about your journey at OI

Although I am quite new to OI, I have already had the opportunity to attend the leadership training that has enabled me to learn more about our company culture and work on my leadership and management skills.

What do you like about working here?

People here are energetic and open-minded. They are willing to help and share their knowledge and personal experience with others. Also, the work is a good challenge that enriches my working experience and requires me to always stay on top of the latest developments in the business world. I have already gotten the chance to join staff and CR activities which were a lot of fun and just what you need to on-board new joiners successfully!

What makes OI special?

One thing that makes OI special is its diversity. People at OI think globally and we come from all different backgrounds. From the start I have noticed the great collaboration across teams, not only work related but also for other creative activities. While people here are motivated when driving their projects, there is still room to learn new things.

Please tell us about your journey at OI?

I joined OI in 2009 as an Analyst programmer. After having been promoted a few times, I now work as an IT Manager in Hong Kong. I enjoy that my focus has shifted from the more technical work to a more holistic project and people management. We started with only two people in our office when I first joined while today our team counts 12 members all over our China offices. For me it is great to see the team and the individuals grow at OI.

What do you like about working here?

I appreciate that we care about people development by for example making training accessible to everyone by providing a variety of different training methods. We encourage a nice and friendly environment and drive global collaboration. I enjoy the opportunities to promote others while also developing my career.

What makes OI special?

The combination of our global setup with our important investment into IT and the digital transformation in the last years and our support of the environment define our unique approach to business.

Please tell us about your journey at OI

I started my career with our customer OTTO in Germany. After transferring to Otto International, I was promoted to Business Analyst and later to Senior Finance Manager being responsible for the Controlling team in Hamburg. Today I am responsible for Global Controlling while I also manage Otto International GmbH in Hamburg.

What do you like about working here?

I especially like that no working day is like the other. Our global dynamic means that every day is unpredictable, which is what makes my job most interesting. Due to our relatively flat hierarchies and small teams I take on a lot more things than just Controlling which keeps me busy and has allowed me to gain a very broad range of experiences over the years.

What makes OI special?

For me OI is special because of the people that work in this company. I am very happy to have a great team to work with. I like that people are friendly and respectful to each other. Our diverse cultural backgrounds strengthen our ability to run our business so successfully.
