Premiere at proLogistik: Children’s Day took place for the first time on July 14 with a colorful supporting program. 17 children aged between two and 13 accompanied mom or dad to work and had a lot of fun together. After a short reception with juice and snacks, the children first explored the building with their parents and were allowed to take a look at the offices. During the tour, the table football in the kitchen was immediately taken up with enthusiasm. The rally through the company then started with four stations: In the hardware department, the children created their own name bracelets depending on their age or were allowed to take the screwdriver into their own hands by screwing on a PC cooling plate. This was particularly exciting for older kids. At the marketing department station, the girls and boys were able to get really creative by making their own buttons. They created colorful works of art such as rainbow, BVB and proLogistik buttons, which they were then allowed to assemble themselves. At the next station, the People and Culture team offered various team games, while at the fourth station, the children were able to watch a “cinema presentation” of … Read more
