And this is how we say… welcome 2022!
This year started with a hand full of new projects and challenges that we look forward to. Certainly, one of the continuing projects at Traffic Lab is the Knowledge Day. It is a space where we get to learn about each other and understand the different tools that a fast-paced growing company needs to have to achieve its commercial goals but first and foremost its employee’s wellbeing.
On February 11th we held our first in-person knowledge day of the year at Bredgade 30 in a very spacious conference room and of course, Danish style, with lots of coffee and cake. The day started with different activities defined by each department. Our Sites Department for example went out on a morning date at Creative Space together, where they painted their own pottery. Other departments decided to get breakfast together or stayed at the office instead and held a brief on Cyber Security.
During the afternoon we were informed about a new initiative that aims to improve the dialogue between managers and employees, to help each other to be seen, heard, and acknowledged. This initiative is called 1:1 Lab Talks. It is a 30-minute monthly one-to-one talk between manager and employee covering these six main topics:
- Motivation & Engagement
- Health & Wellbeing
- Cooperation & Relations
- Planning & Objectives
- Communication & Feedback
- Career & Development
The benefit of the 1:1 Lab Talks is that “it gives the chance to talk about what’s relevant for both parties and to have a follow up on a regular basis instead of once a year as we were doing with the yearly employee development talks ( MUS) conversations” says Heidi Thisgaard, our head of Human Resources. This initiative encourages teams at Traffic Lab to find solutions as a group and individually to move forward on our day-to-day work. We are constantly trying to build a path towards the future of work which is employee well-being.
