In the interview, the head of IT, Ursula Steiner, talks about the importance of transparency in the company, the advantage of a shared coffee kitchen, and explains what a happy board is.
Mrs Steiner, dataTec AG has grown enormously in recent years. What changes does that entail for your company?
Yes, that's right, we have been able to expand our position very well and that is a great success for all of us. But along with everything positive, that also presents us with completely new challenges in everyday life.
Just an example: After we had extended our building to a second floor, we had to consider whether we’d also set up a coffee kitchen there, and decided against it. Simply because we wanted all our employees to talk to each other and not suddenly form two groups. So, you still meet in a shared coffee kitchen We didn’t even think about something like that before.
