2017 | Daimler – Team Retreat Quality Market & Product

In October 2017, the Quality Management department at Mercedes-Benz Cars held an employee retreat under the motto "Our Way to Leadership 2020". The newly introduced/lived structure L2020 of the parent company Daimler was to be brought closer to the QM/MP team in an interesting and eventful way and the implementation in our own ranks was to be stimulated.

After arriving in Sonthofen, at the Hotel Allgäu Stern, a percussion workshop followed, which, apart from fun and relaxation, was above all intended to strengthen the sense of togetherness and the community of the department. Afterwards there were informative lectures and intensive teamwork in small workshop groups.

After a long day we hiked together to the nearby Sonnenkopf hut and experienced a relaxed evening with suckling pig, a humorous keynote by Dr. Lars Vollmer and lots of music.

Before the concluding workshop round and the forthcoming journey home on the second day a common charity action still remained on the agenda. Within two and a half hours, a wooden refuge was completed and donated to the Christophorus School Farchant and its special educational centre.
