A network, which brings together the young minded and active people working at TietoEVRY.
Our Young Professionals community is a network, which brings together the young minded and active people working at TietoEVRY. We organize interesting activities such as workshops, spare time activities, networking meetups with young professionals from other companies and trips regularly in the Nordics and other countries. As part of the network, you get to meet inspiring colleagues across units and countries, share knowledge and make new friends – let’s not forget the afterworks and fun!
Every year, a bunch of TietoEVRY Young Professionals from different countries gather for a traditional assembly trip - last year our assembly trip took place in London over a long weekend full of networking, workshopping and fun. The trip was culminated with a workshop facilitated by Google, in this way we got to strengthen our connection and collaboration with our partner and share and spar with each other.
The workshop was kicked off with a Kahoot competition being continued with an introduction to Google Cloud products and the company culture. As part of the group assignment we had a chance to put our pitching skills to a test, the best pitch winning goodies related to Google Cloud, of course. We practiced team working skills but also defining ideas. Pitching skills are useful regardless of the job title; whether you are selling a product or have an idea you want to get across.
As an after work(shop) activity, we were treated with a distillery tour in one of London's vodka distilleries. While sipping some tasty local produce, the distillery tour revealed the fine art of making vodka and gin as well as explaining the business around it. The day was completed with our personalized, TietoEVRY-labelled double-decker ride along the Thames and a cozy dinner as the final flourish.
The weekend got us all in a fantastic mood, not only when in London, but also in the offices afterward. We met a lot of new people, connected socially with colleagues, made new friends and learned new things. Feeling of connectedness fueled us with great energy - after all we are, one TietoEVRY.
