It was definitely an experience. I really learned a lot and had so much fun. I gained new knowledge, got to know different collaboration tools, "met" new people and just saw a lot of colleagues in one place. It was great to get all the information at first hand - directly from the management. Because that opens up a whole new horizon. I had two really exciting, informative, intensive and beautiful days. And the time just flew by.
These two days were also very exhausting from home: you stare at the screen the whole time and have to listen with concentration. I found discussions in particular to be more difficult because you have to be very careful who speaks when so that the sound doesn't overlap. This also means that you have to plan much more time for interactive slots than for physical meetings. The pauses between the topic blocks were very important to get up in between, briefly loosen up and relax the senses.
For me it is clear: virtual onboarding does not replace personal contact on site. Unfortunately, an individual exchange in an online meeting is difficult and networking is simply not enough. But I already have my "ticket" to St. Gallen in my hand. Because we'll definitely make up for the personal meeting as soon as possible!
