Who run the world? Young professionals!
We have offspring: 38 apprentices are starting out at Mister Spex this year!
Starting their apprenticeships on 1 August and 1 September, they will gain valuable initial work experience in the areas of optics, warehouse logistics, dialogue marketing, system administration, e-commerce as well as office management.
To live in diversity, you need understanding on all sides and protected space to exchange ideas. And because the topic of Pride and LGBTQIA+ are too important to talk about only once a year, we met virtually for an internal panel event entitled: “Unapologetically Us!”.
“That was a sign from the universe”
Customers decide where, how and when they shop with us – whether in our online shop or in one of our stores. Our customer service staff are there to help and advise them and support them with all their questions about their eyewear purchase. And the tasks, areas of application and development opportunities for agents in Customer Service are as varied as the people who work at Mister Spex. That’s why we’re looking behind the scenes with you and diving into our Mister Spex world – today with Manuel.
Mister Spex Summer Party 2022
Finally, the time had come – after more than two and a half years, we celebrated together again and welcomed almost 500 Spexies from all departments, locations and countries.
Investing in your mental health
Corona, war, and climate are just three of the current issues that have us stuck in permanent crisis mode. Daily stress and global escalations can cause our emotional, psychological, and social well-being to falter – especially when the (inner) stress level is constantly high, mental health takes a hit. Before this happens, however, we can take remedial action and recharge our batteries before they are completely exhausted. For the term, mental health encompasses more than the absence of mental impairments and disorders such as exhaustion, burnout, depression, or cognitive impairment. Mental health also includes positive aspects such as well-being, job satisfaction, work engagement, and personal and work-related resources that we can positively influence. Together with a psychologist from our mental health support partner Openup, we hosted a virtual session to learn about the concept of mindfulness.
