Our annual Prototyping Days event gives every employee the opportunity to turn his or her vision of XING into reality. Project teams consisting of people from every corner of the company put aside their usual work and get together for three days to work on projects they came up with. At the end of the events, the entire company gets together with the project teams presenting the results of their work. But coming up with great ideas isn’t just fun, it’s also a major benefit for the company, too!
The top 8 reasons to work at XING
Our project looked at how we can provide the best-possible networking experience in the future. My seven project teammates and I didn’t just want to use the Prototyping Days 2012 event to look into the future, we wanted to focus on what drives XING, i.e. its employees. Our aim was to show why we’re so passionate about XING and why we love working here. Our personal contribution as just a few of the 520 employees was a video we made that presents the top 8 reasons to work at XING.
Our team consisted of people from the Technology, Customer Relations and Product teams. The video went through its baptism of fire at the presentation session and passed with flying colors. In fact we won the Best Spirit Award for our efforts. But let’s face it – we got our Executive Board to crawl under the table soccer table, so I’m sure we deserved to win )
