Tools and apps I work with - today: Stefanie Blome
Hello, my name is Stefanie Blome and at ProjectWizards I take care of sales, accounting, human resources management and whatever else comes up in the administration. I also write articles for our blog and support my husband Frank, our CEO, as his assistant and keep his back as far as possible.
Important for the daily work are of course always the little and big helpers on my computer, which means the software I use for the completion of my various tasks.Read more...
Always a good place to work - for me already since 2008
At ProjectWizards, we work remotely from home. Always have. With the outbreak of the Corona pandemic, the discussion in Germany about working from home became more and more urgent. We can only smile tiredly about this, after all, we have been doing this for years and very successfully.
The advantages outweigh the disadvantages, for example that you only have a few steps to work every day, but you can still see your colleagues directly and contact them in a short time. Thanks to modern work devices and apps, we are all connected and can concentrate wonderfully on our work. We don't know any disturbances caused by the noise of an open-plan office.
We even have a set up virtual coffee kitchen where people can discuss and laugh apart from work. But that's not all. Every now and then, as just happened this week, there is also a nice surprise that is not virtual in nature.
The parcel carrier rings the doorbell and a black package with a Merlin Project sticker is handed over. Inside is a "Corona Care Package" containing everything needed for survival in these days. Two small bottles of Prosecco for the good mood, many small chocolate bars for even more good mood and several FFP2 masks, so that all colleagues come through the pandemic unharmed.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this team. Attention like this is what has set us apart for years, a sworn community working on great products and the customers out there appreciate it!
The reactions to the first two blog entries on the subject of home office have amazed me. Actually, up to now I was of the opinion that the majority of brain or computer workers are able to switch to remote work without any problems. Far from it, because the opposite is the case.
Let us talk today about a first collection of practical tips.Read more...
