January 2019 / zeron manages DEKRA's internal event

New year. New client! With almost 45,000 employees around the globe DEKRA is one of the world’s leading expert organisations in testing, inspection and certification. In Europe, DEKRA is the undisputed market leader. Two subsidiaries were merged to form DEKRA Testing and Certification GmbH on 1 January 2019 in order to optimise the company’s future viability.

The merger process isn’t just a focus of interest for customers and experts, but also for the some 200 personnel who became close colleagues in January. DTC organised a large-scale kick-off event with the motto of “ZUSAMMENgehen“ (joiningTOGETHER) at the Jahrhunderthaus in Bochum, with presentations, an exhibition by the specialist departments, discussions and plenty of time for people to get to know each other. zeron planned, organised and managed the entire in-house event – from programme design to speaker sourcing, catering and technical equipment.

The feedback has been very positive and there’s a real sense of optimism. Just what a strong change process needs!
