That was the second Welcome Day 2023
On Tuesday, September 19, it was once again: Welcome to Volkswagen Group IT Solutions! At the Braunschweig location, there was the opportunity to get to know each other better and to make contacts. A varied program consisting of presentations, question rounds and networking offered them the chance to immerse themselves in the world of VWGIS.

The Welcome Day started at 12 noon with a warm welcome and an overview of the day's schedule by organizer Niklas. Afterwards, the participants had the opportunity to try a currywurst at lunch and make first networking contacts.
After everyone had fortified themselves at the buffet, CFO Dirk Birke and Business Unit Manager Dirk Schäfer also welcomed the participants on site. In their presentations, they introduced themselves personally, talked about the role of VWGIS in the Group and explained the VWGIS strategy.
