How does the Zeppelin headquarters look like? And what are Zeppelin’s corporate values? Before COVID-19, new colleagues were given the opportunity to personally gain many impressions of Zeppelin on site in Garching (Germany) during onboarding days. At the moment, personal visits at the headquarters from colleagues all over Germany are not possible anymore in such large groups. However, onboarding still needs to take place. What to do, was the question. And of course, Zeppelin found an answer. Because:
We Create Solutions!
On August 6 2020, the Zeppelin Group welcomed around 100 new Zeppeliners to its first time ever digital onboarding day. Under the motto “if Zeppeliners can’t come to the headquarters, then we bring the HQ’s to them”, CFO Christian Dummler and Labor Director Alexandra Mebus welcomed the new colleagues via live-webstream. Interesting facts and figures about the Zeppelin Group were presented and shortly followed by a lively digital chat between members of the Managing Board and the new colleagues. To get a grip on how the Zeppelin location in Garching looks like, a virtual video tour around the Zeppelin headquarters in Garching was the next point on the agenda. The video therefore gave exquisite insights into the Zeppelin oil laboratory, as well as the rental- and construction machinery branch in Garching. To get over the midday low, the second half of the day started with a live broadcast of gym exercises. A qualified fitness trainer therefore sported in front of a live-webstream, motivating all new Zeppelin colleagues behind the screens also to stay fit! After this physical exercise, mental exercise was on the agenda: In a digital quiz about the Zeppelin Group, the knowledge of the new Zeppeliners was tested in a playful way. Thanks to the great success of the pilot, international digital onboarding formats will follow. That’s what we call We Create Solutions!
