Because customer closeness is important to us.
The typical working week starts early on Monday morning, usually with a flight or a trainride abroad. Whether to relatively nearby Germany or to faraway China, our consultants work as closely as possible with our customers.
Being on site for several working days per week on projects is usual in consulting. The global COVID pandemic however, has made the everyday work routine of a consultant a bit more flexible. Many projects are currently processed remotely, many teams collaborate from a distance.
In this context EFS has intensively familiarized itself with the topic Digital Workplace and has created a remote-work understanding, which makes it possible to continue to deliver the accustomed quality of collaboration to the customer.
Weekly travel is still the norm. For more distant customer assignments – such as Mexico, India or China – only a stay of several weeks makes sense. This allows our employees to adapt better to local conditions and thus master challenges more effectively.
