It was a day you could not have wished for more beautifully. Just in time for focus's 25th anniversary, the sun was shining from a cloudless sky. But it wasn't only the sky that showed its best side: All in all, everything was just right when the Merenberg-based company celebrated its birthday on May 12,2017 on the company's own premises.
Many customers, partners and friends had accepted the invitation and did not miss the opportunity to congratulate personally. Markus Michels and Dieter Munsch, the two managing directors of focus, welcomed their guests with a small opening speech and thanked them warmly for their many congratulations: "We are very pleased that our event has been so well received and that we can celebrate together with representatives of those companies who have accompanied us on the way to success over the past 25 years", said Markus Michels.
As a thank-you, the hosts had come up with a few ideas to give their guests a few nice hours. Those who wanted to could prove their skills on a Segway fun and skill course or on a buzzer wall. There was also a great rush in the training room, where there was the possibility to test Microsoft HoloLens (Augmented Reality Glasses).
As part of a small project exhibition, the guests used the opportunity to take a look "behind the scenes" and many interesting discussions developed.
The guests and hosts also enjoyed the beautiful day with a good meal and musical entertainment.
In the run-up to the celebration, they had asked for gifts to be refrained from and instead donated to the Unnauer Sponsorship, an association that cares for and supports families with children and adolescents suffering from cancer and severe illnesses. At the end of the day, we were happy to have a proud little penny.
Following the "official part", the employees and their families celebrated into the late evening hours and there was a lot of laughter while the day ended together.
On 27 April 2017 started this year's Girls‘Day, the world's largest project for career orientation for female students from classes 5 and higher.
Despite good school education, more than half of the girls focus on just ten different training occupations - among them none related to science or technology. Valuable potential is lost here. focus wants to open up completely new prospects for the future and to allow young women an easier access to the world of technology.
The five-hour workshop concentrated on the exciting career of an IT specialist in the field of application development. The participants experienced "up close“ the meaning of programming and were able to demonstrate their skills.
Since the start of the campaign in 2001, more than 1.5 million girls have participated. Many of them have found a training place or a course of studies to prepare for their dream job.
Finding a suitable profession that allows you financial independence and personal satisfaction, is not easy. To facilitate the transition from school to the world of work, the Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Westerwaldkreis (WFG) successfully cooperates with companies and institutions in the region and organized for the fourth time the career orientation forum on 5 April 2017.
Students were given the opportunity to obtain comprehensive information on professional careers and how to get a little closer to their "dream job ". In a relaxed atmosphere there was sufficient time for a first interview and a lot of them took advantage of the direct contact in order to receive first-hand information.
focus was also represented at its booth students could inform themselves about the wide variety of training opportunities as well as career prospects.
This year again, focus has donated money, which was formerly spent for customers' presents to three charitable associations.
Lichtblicke Rennerod e. V., the gymnastic club 1901 Rennerod e. V.and the "Diakonische Werk Westerburg" could look forward to receiving 1000 euros.
In this way, focus supports the important work of these associations and expresses its gratitude to all the volunteers for their work commitment.
