In August, GEWI’s staff went underground to an 18th century coal mine. A train, the “Rabenstein Express” full of GEWI developers and staff were taken deep underground into a coal mine to get a look at life much different than the day-to-day software development work done at GEWI.
The trip also included some “hands on” coal mining, a drive with a draisine, a 100m walk in complete darkness and in the end the miners were treated to an excellent meal and beverages deserving of such a hard working crew.
It is said that the company that plays together, stays together and it seems to be true. The tenure of the average GEWI staff is over 14 years. For more information on GEWI people and products, visit www.gewi.com.
