In German-speaking Switzerland, the NEX Welcome Day took place over two days this year as part of a pilot project. In addition to the general introduction to the company, this year’s focus was primarily on the topic of self-management. "I have the will" should be the motto of every single apprentice. cablex offers apprentices a platform to develop independently and to achieve their goals with the necessary will and a lot of initiative.
"Getting started with an apprenticeship and in the company is formative for the ongoing career path. Dealing with questions like "Why am I needed? What can I discover during my apprenticeship? What can I achieve and what can I do?" motivates and spurs on. For this reason, we decided to conduct the pilot in German-speaking Switzerland this year with a Welcome Day that took place over two days. This gave us the opportunity to expand and supplement the content, as well as to convey the majority of the information in an action-oriented and contextualised way.
Swisscom Mediamatik apprentice Cyril Keller, who has been supporting our team since the beginning of August (Marketplace project), was responsible for the 'My apprenticeship' section. He shared his experiences as an apprentice with those beginning their apprenticeships, laying the foundation for a discussion of our cablex values in the process. Daniel Binzegger's messages afterwards were impressive in underlining the importance of already displaying curiosity and passion during one’s apprenticeship.
During these two exciting days, ideas for further meaningful and enriching content emerged – quite possibly, another day will be added next year."
