The big comeback of Rock am Ring – We were finally there again!

After two years of “abstention” due to the pandemic, our m3 rockers were finally able to enjoy Germany’s biggest traditional festival again. A total of 40 m3 employees were among the 75,000 visitors and enjoyed an unforgettable festival experience. Headliners at the festival included Green Day, Muse and Volbeat. Other acts included Placebo, Måneskin, Marteria, Beatsteaks, Jan Delay, Scooter and other well-known top acts.
Those who stayed at home may hardly believe it at first, but the corporate success of m3 also benefits from the shared experience of such an event: In a great mood and cheerful celebratory mood, our colleagues proudly presented the company and symbolized team strength by hanging up the m3 flag and wearing our m3 hoodies, T-shirts and jackets uniformly. After all, this is not the case everywhere – a 2016 study by the AOK found that one in four respondents complained of a negative working atmosphere, and that this had a negative impact on productivity and motivation. We asked our colleague Daniel Stevens, who works at m3connect as Head of Account Management and describes himself as the “biggest fan of the campaign”, for what reasons the shared festival experience is important, and to what extent he believes it has a positive effect on the team and the company. We would like to present his conviction – as the initiator of the campaign – to you here verbatim:
“The annual festival visit to Rock Am Ring is a very special highlight, as the participating colleagues experience great and, above all, unforgettable moments together in an incomparable atmosphere. Weeks, even months in advance, the anticipation is shared à la “It’s finally coming soon!” and “Which bands do we want to see?”. On site, the camp is then set up together and lived in together for days. Great concerts are visited and it is laughed together extensively, sung, danced and celebrated. The festival visit welds together in a very special way and even creates one or the other friendship among the participants. Team building in a class of its own.”
It’s great to see that our colleagues enjoy spending time together even away from the workplace. The strong team culture and the lived values of m3 are a valuable basis for the company’s success
