Last Monday Anne, Atle, Lars, Mikael, Jørgen, Mikko and Pär had their first meeting with Visma as Management trainees. The transfer from being a student to a professional can be a bit overwhelming, so we wanted to bring the new trainees together for an informal meeting before their working life commences in August.
Throughout the day they got to meet different managers, former trainees and other employees here at Visma. They were introduced to the people that will be responsible for the trainee program, as until now they had only met Nina and me as we were responsible for the recruitment process. They received a brief introduction to all the exciting things that lies ahead of them the coming year, with project and mentor allocations and social events. The day ended with a nice dinner down at Tjuvholmen.
I had a great day and enjoyed getting to know the new trainees a bit more than what I already do from the different interviews. We are all looking forward to August when they become our new colleagues for real. The commencement of new trainee periods is always very exciting, but it also means that someone else’s trainee year is coming to an end. What we will be doing next will be presented to you here on the blog shortly.
