Mister Spex at the Berlin company run 2023
On 16 May 2023 it was that time again, around 15,000 runners, walkers and skaters from almost 900 companies took part in the 21st Berlin Company Run. Among them: a running delegation from Mister Spex! Along the 5.5 kilometre route, there were some well-known city landmarks to see, including the Brandenburg Gate and the Victory Column. Our Spexies all mastered the run with flying colours and toasted with a non-alcoholic beer afterwards. By the way, they also did something for their mental health.
Mental health at work: “I make sure that I don’t get caught up in the stress vortex in the first place”
During Mental Health Awareness Month, Mister Spex would like to bring the topic of mental health further into focus and contribute to getting more people talking about it. Together with our partner OpenUp, we have therefore recorded a video to stimulate the discourse. In the interview with psychologist Eva from OpenUp, our Director of Customer Service Pamela talks openly and honestly about dealing with stress, her role as a leader and the challenges Customer Service faced during the Corona pandemic. But why is it so important to talk about Mental Health?
International Women’s Day 2023: We #EmbraceEquity!

Yaser – volunteer with a big heart
With great dismay and regret we have been following the news from Turkey and Syria since the beginning of February. The rising number of victims after the earthquake as well as the hardship and suffering leave us dismayed and stunned. Our colleague Yaser will be providing help on the ground.
“I didn’t expect customer advice to be such a great experience”
At Mister Spex, hundreds of store employees work every day to provide customers with a great experience in our 68 shops. From eye exams and style advice to the sale of different products, the store specialists keep our brick-and-mortar business running from Monday to Saturday (in some countries even on Sundays). With increasing retail growth (20 new stores in Germany, Austria, Sweden and Switzerland in 2022 alone), the challenges and tasks in the stores are not becoming any less. For this reason, there was an important item in our Objectives & Key Results for the last quarter of the year that was exclusively intended for our management team: a one-day internship as a sales advisor in a Mister Spex store!
