We asked them what the b|c employee experience is like
Ever since I started working in the field of HR-IT I was fascinated by the technologies I came into contact with. At first, it all seemed like a mystery to me, as my studies didn’t involve any programming or computer science. In my first few weeks at binder|consulting, I started reading about things I found interesting, and I asked colleagues for more information. One of them even offered to teach me how to code, which we have been doing for some months now. Every week he sends me small exercises that I can work on whenever I find the time. On Fridays we meet up and have a look at how far I have gotten. I really enjoy improving my skills in that area and it is a great feeling to see that what I have tried to code really works. What encourages me to pursue this is my colleague's support. He motivates me, and we celebrate every step of my progress, which makes me very proud of my baby coding steps!
I particularly appreciate the enthusiasm for personal development that we have here at b|c. The willingness to learn from each other is very high across all levels of experience. My experience is that I not only receive open and constructive feedback in my everyday work, but I am also actively asked for my opinion in decision making. Commitment and good performance are also openly and directly seen and appreciated. This fair and empowering treatment really encourages me to grow beyond what I think possible, again and again. Among other things, I was particularly touched to see how honestly happy and supportive my colleagues were when they celebrated my promotion with me .
From the first steps I took into the binder|consulting office in August 2015, I felt welcomed, professionally challenged, and in a trustful environment where my opinion mattered. In my first project in August 2015, the senior partner I reported to told me that he had planned a 3 week annual leave that month, and that in his absence I would hold the weekly status meeting with the board member of our customer (DAX corporation). I was nervous. While I was excited, I was also full of doubts about whether I was ready to face such a challenge. Not only did that senior partner give me the confidence to do this, but he also prepared me for the meetings in ways that were far beyond the context of a pure status report about the project. I am very thankful to have experienced this type of leadership, and I hope to help others the same way my project leader helped me.
Being in a place that supports my entrepreneurial spirit has always been very important to me. From the very beginning of my journey at binder|consulting, working on different topics with very talented people has inspired me. Within a few months, I came up with an idea to improve employee experiences and was given the chance to work on it and present it. Half a year later, we are now gathering a team to take the idea to the next level! This greatly satisfies my entrepreneurial instincts and motivates me to keep up with HR & IT trends while working on my projects .
What are b|c's unique selling points? Certainly many, but above all: humanity, appreciation, and community.
