What do my colleagues actually do? What projects are they working on right now? Has anyone tried out an exciting new technology? The monthly DIA lunch break sessions can be used to present our work - the team, a customer, a project, techniques and frameworks - and to exchange ideas. DIA buys pizza for everyone at the lunch break session at the headquarters in Wetzlar.
Once a year, we take time out as a team to come together in person with all employees as ONE TEAM, to experience team building, to reflect on the past year and to look ahead at the coming year. For many employees, the DIA Day represents a highlight in cross-team exchange and collaboration on the positioning of DIA.
Each DIA employee, whether old or new, has unlimited access to new knowledge. Salesforce's "Sales Enablement" tool is a customizable platform for a new, fun way of learning, which we have adapted and continue to adapt to both our brand and the individual needs of each learner. There are onboarding trails on all relevant topics for newcomers, and for old hands, DIA and Salesforce offer endless opportunities for online training.
DIA employees are special. We are all wonderfully different from each other and each of us is an individual. The appealing and successful combination of different types makes our work varied and inspiring. We enjoy spending time together outside of projects, dailies, sprints etc. Whether it's a successful project completion, Christmas party, summer party, birthdays or the XLETIX Challenge, there are always reasons for fun and cool drink together. Because family is important to us, partners, children, four-footed family members and invited guests are also welcome.
DIA takes care of its employees - including their health. The Feel Good Manager at our headquarters in Wetzlar provides fresh cut fruit at the free muesli bar in the morning.
Colleagues can also help themselves to a variety of salads twice a week during their lunch break. Other preventive services at DIA include eye tests, learning trails on posture and working at a desk on our enablement platform, and counseling for mental health problems.
DIA enables its employees to discover the world even outside of their annual vacation.
Working on the go means our colleagues are not bound to working on their projects at one of our offices or at home and can continue to participate in customer meetings and internal arrangements when they are abroad. Whether it's a trip to Thailand, a workation in Norway or a long weekend at the North Sea, thanks to an encrypted VPN tunnel, nothing stands in the way of our "work from anywhere" concept.
DIA employees help organize the Frankfurt Trailblazer Community Group, where Salesforce users meet to learn, share ideas, network and get best practice tips for making the most out of Salesforce. There are hundreds of Salesforce users around the world, including groups devoted to specific subjects such as general knowledge, development, product, nonprofit, women in tech and affinity.
We are closely and productively networked with our partners, customers and competitors. We exchange ideas at events in a wide variety of formats to achieve the greatest benefits for the cause. We enjoy presenting the latest technologies and exciting keynotes at our customer events to show where the journey is headed in the future and how companies are positioning themselves for it.
