You'll find an ask-us-anything form pinned to the
#slackcast Slack channel. Use this form, if you like to ask a question anonymously towards the strategy community. This might be helpful if you feel uncertainty or insecurity with announcements or decisions. We want to make sure that every team member has a safe space to ask questions.
So, you want to skill up and learn some new things? Great! We offer a budget for people to develop new skills as part of our learning and development budget. The budget is set at 1,500 EUR per person, per calendar year. It can be used for external trainings or conferences.
The only requirements are that:
- It is something that will help you with your role
- Your manager approves it
After that, the process is fairly simple:
- Write an email to our orga team, with your manager in CC, and explain which course you want to take/which book you want to buy/which conference you want to attend/etc.
- Orga will book it on your behalf. In case they are unable to book it on your behalf, we may be able to reimburse you after you purchase it yourself, but please talk to us about this option first.
We also offer internal opportunities for self-development. These include a collaboration with Pluralsight. Pluralsight is a training solution that provides training on topics such as cloud, security, software development and data. Please talk with your lead if you are interested so they can provide you with the login information.
From time to time, different workshops for different audiences will be offered. Some formats we do on a regular basis are for example workshops on how to give/receive feedback or introductions to design thinking. There is a
shared drive pinned to
#slackcast where team members can share material from interesting workshops for everyone. If you have something, put it in there. Create a folder that follows the format
YYYY-MM-DD-workshop-title-trainer-name and move your files in it.
