OSRAM CONNECTORS – MULTIPLYING KNOWLEDGE
“Achieving more together” is the mission that the four global talents Bastian July, Monika Eldracher, Thomas Filz and Vito Latini set for themselves when they launched OSRAM Connectors in early 2017. The aim is to network employees across departments in order to help them share ideas and make better use of synergies in the effort to facilitate new innovations. Prism asked Miriam Albers, who recently became an OSRAM Connector, about her initial impressions.
HOW DO YOU BECOME AN OSRAM CONNECTOR?
The networking platform will not become available until 2018. So for right now, people who are interested can register by email. We are already seeing a lot of interest. Anyone can get involved.
WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO PARTICIPATE?
OSRAM has changed a great deal in recent years. The platform will make it easier in the future to track these changes and engage in dialog about work-related matters with other colleagues from other departments or locations. You simply think outside the box and learn a lot in the process.
WHAT HAVE SOME OF YOUR INITIAL EXPERIENCES BEEN?
I have been able to engage in dialog with new and more experienced colleagues across departments and collect a number of ideas for my own work. This network can help employees get over their shyness. I am now much more open to questions from others and have the courage to ask my own.
