Petra Oberle, Head of HR & Finance
We do not know how Petra manages everything she does. But we know she does a super job. She manages to balance her family life, job and her business administrative studies, without losing her warmth and sense of humour, in a calm and collected manner. After 20 years´ experience working for a large corporation where she could only make small contributions, she appreciates the opportunity to really set things in action, being responsible for a wide range of tasks and really making a difference at bor!gloger. As a manager she values creating balance between people and enabling them to assume personal responsibility. What fascinates her about Scrum and the bor!sgloger approach is how it constantly finds new ways to look at and solve the eternal problems of the world of work. For Petra personally, agility comes from accepting life’s difficult situations and learning from them. Even when situations sometimes seem senseless, it is often in hindsight that we realize the most interesting perspectives came from them.
Bernadette Christ, Accounting
We at bor!sgloger like to talk about readiness to accept change. The best part is that on our team we have people who possess this readiness and practice it in their daily lives. After 20 years of working for a bakery as a specialized sales person, Bernadette Christ gave it all up to try something completely different, in order to learn something new. Even her former employer recognized that her far-sightedness goes well beyond what would be necessary. Now we and the customers benefit from her diligence and administrative professional skills. The growth and development of bor!sgloger are fascinating to her and she contributes positively towards it. Because she always wants exact, well founded information herself, Bernadette conducts our workshops and seminars. She is reliable and patient and is totally convinced that success begins by paying attention to details.
Janine Frensemeyer, Executive Assistant
Anyone who can teach manners to 12 paws and make 1,800 square meters bloom is also able to coordinate one of the busiest executives ever. It is thanks to Janine that Boris knows his schedule, but this is exactly what she loves about her work: No day is like the other, but brings new contacts throughout the world. While she supports her boss with unconditional loyalty and lightning-speed comprehension, she loves to look through the windows he pushes open day after day: Janine implements Boris’ trust in the capabilities of people. Doing instead of talking is what this socially active nature lover from Baden-Baden lives by. In her spare time, the trained jurist is working on finding a new home for dogs from Malta, who have had very little luck in their lives this far. Consequently, the 12 paws belong to three former stray dogs, who found a permanent home at Janine’s after many difficult journeys, and who are allowed to frolic in her backyard, in which the sea of blossoms created by her English roses sway in the wind and the beloved silk tree provides shade for all four and two-legged visitors.
Marion Stephan, Training Management
A lot of preparation is necessary before a training session can smoothly and successfully be conducted. This is precisely what Marion is in charge of with the sovereignty, serenity, and goal orientation resulting from many years of professional experience. She plans the training calendar, organizes the facilities, coordinates trainers and partners, and handles all questions and requests from participants before and after the training session. There is one thing Marion most certainly will not provide: a rote customer service program. She is not a fan of trampled paths, neither during her trips through South America nor in her work with customers. She considers every question, and especially every complaint, to be unique and important, which is why listening and understanding is of utmost importance to Marion. She believes that there is little room for improvement when staying in your comfort zone, which is why she uses all kinds of feedback for herself and for bor!sgloger to get better and better.
