Welcome to HanseBelt!

Companies welcome newly relocated professionals and executives in the region

A new job, new colleagues and a new home - moving to a different region is not always an easy decision to make. This is particularly true if your partner and family are expected to move with you. To make newly relocated professionals and executives - as well as their families - feel at home in the HanseBelt region, the HanseBelt e.V. non-profit body regularly hosts a welcome reception. This time, it was the turn of Minimax GmbH and Co. KG in Bad Oldesloe to host the event. Managing Director Dr. Volker Bechtloff is very supportive of this particular initiative: "We offer our new employees anevening, where they and their partner can socialize and get to know other professionals and executives in similar situations. To feel at home in a new region, employees want more than just a good job. Social networking is a very important factor, both on a private and professional level."

50 professionals and executives from 19 companies enjoyed an entertaining evening while extinguishing a fire at the fire protection provider Minimaxs’ site. Another highlight was theimprovised theater play, which offered insights into typical Nordic quirks in a not so serious manner Ulrike Kammler, International Brand Manager at edding International GmbH, consciously decided to go with her new employer in the HanseBelt: "I lived in Bielefeld, when I started looking for a new professional challenge. In edding, I found a company with a family-oriented culture and international relations, which is able to offer me exciting professional perspectives in the field of international brand development. Another significant factor when deciding on edding as an employer and the related relocation was quite evidently the attractiveness of the HanseBelt region. Since I am originally from Wismar, the region has always held an attraction for me."

HanseBelt e.V. is committed to the development of the region. All 71 members signed a charter in which they commit themselves to a modern corporate culture. Scandinavian-inspired and based on Hanseatic values, the charter defines corporate values and etiquette. The members of the association jointly develop activities for a mutual exchange of ideas in order to learn from one another and to mutually support each other. The aim is to make the region a more attractive environment for living and working. Attractive employers play an important part in this regard.
