In a fast growing environment like eGym, it is very important to share knowledge and experience. In our opinion a simple way to do so are our Brownbag Lunches. We cannot only share knowledge, but it also gives us the opportunity to get in touch with colleagues from different departments and locations.
Our recipe for success:
- 1 hour lunch break
- Approx. 20 eGymees from Munich and Berlin connected via Google Hangouts
- Business and non-business related topics 😉
We started Brownbag Lunches in early eGym times with mainly focusing on IT topics. However, since 2016 the format has broadened and well adopted amongst eGymees. Some topics we discussed recently based on Ted Talks were:
- “Are you a giver or a taker?”
- “Global priorities bigger than climate change”
- “Peter Singer’s Ethics”
- “Inside the mind of a master procrastinator”
- “Why not eat insects?”
- “Food Computers”
“I love Brownbag Lunches as it is a chance to meet colleagues I usually don’t interact with and discuss interesting topics outside the daily routine.” (Julian, Senior Business Development for the New Customer Generation)
“Interacting with various people from the company and discussing interesting topics outside the eGym cosmos“ (Magdalena, Senior Online Marketing Manager)
“Because it is the best way to discuss interesting topics and get different perspectives to rethink your own point of view.” (Cansin, Intern New Customer Generation)
There is nothing better than lunch with a dash of spicy discussion :).
