Meet the New – the networking event for all employees

I have been working for TÜV Rheinland for 21 years and the “New at TÜV“ event has been going on for that long. A great opportunity for all new employees to get a first insight into the TÜV Rheinland world and to network with the participants and speakers. Since November 2018 there is a new format, which in my opinion is a great addition to the already mentioned event.

It has the exciting title “Meet the New” and takes place every eight weeks in the Innovation Room on the 18th floor of the main building. All employees are invited with the aim to meet new and long-standing colleagues.

Networking in the company made easy

I myself have taken part in two meetings so far and I am impressed by the increase in participants over the short period of time. While there were 20 to 25 participants at the third event, more than 50 have already registered for the fifth event. Well-deserved, I must say.

The program of “Meet the New” always includes two 100-seconds presentations and a 15-minute lecture which are prepared by the colleagues together with the host, Innovation Facilitator Kai Ulrich. This makes it an entertaining event format which presents interesting topics about Innovation, agile work or personal topics in a casual way and invites to exciting discussions. Afterwards, one can start networking over finger food and homemade lemonades. In the stimulating discussions with colleagues, you can forget the time and it is not uncommon for the gates to be closed around 7.30 pm.

New at TÜV or new in mind: One network event for everyone in the company

Due to the increasingly rapid process of change in our working world, Digitalisation is also finding its way into many areas of work. Even the exchange among colleagues is often shaped by electronic communication.”Meet the New” counteracts this trend with a somewhat forgotten idea: The personal exchange! New and long-standing employees can learn from each other.


Innovatives Onboarding


The act of networking benefits from the knowledge and contacts of others. Thus, new employees can learn a lot about processes, culture, and successes as well as setbacks of the employer and gain faster access to their new job. This saves money and time and ensures more satisfaction. Long-term employees receive useful input and a fresh way of thinking from the new colleagues. A classic win-win situation that benefits not only the individual but the entire company.

I therefore look forward to the next events of ‘Meet the New’ and I am excited about new and unusual topics and interesting contacts.
