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!
Mister Spex Winter Market 2022
Shortly before the second Advent, the time had come: we celebrated our Winter Market on the grounds of our logistics and distribution centre on Wohlrabedamm in Berlin-Spandau. Hundreds of Berlin colleagues warmed up in icy temperatures with delicious drinks and food and spent a wonderful time together.
“We should all talk more openly about men’s health”
Every year in November, men around the world grow moustaches or forgo shaving altogether. The penultimate month of the year is meant to draw attention to a topic that is still talked about far too little: Men’s health. To offer a protected space for exchange, we have therefore organised a virtual “Movember” panel.
