Passion for sports and nature
Regardless of the time of day, weather conditions or season, outdoor exercise and sports are part of a successful day for Katharina, which she cannot do without.
Regardless of the time of day, weather conditions or season, outdoor exercise and sports are part of a successful day for Katharina, which she cannot do without. Whether it’s before or after work, indoors or in nature, a successful day includes exercise - that's Katharina. She is always on the go because of her many hobbies. These include trail running (Katharina has even run several half marathons), hiking and Canicross. Ivy, Katharina's Australian Shepherd, is her loyal companion – of course, this includes Ivy joining Katharina at the office.
As an HR Partner at VESCON, Katharina takes care of the employees and managers. This includes, for example, supporting each employee from their start at VESCON until they leave, including consulting them on their career path. Before joining VESCON in July of 2017, Katharina worked for a large international software company. The decision to switch to a medium-sized company was a conscious one: "I was looking for an environment with flatter hierarchies, in which I could get more involved in complete HR processes. At VESCON, you can take a hands-on approach to each task and get the ball rolling, which suits me very well." There was aspect that played an important role in her decision for VESCON: "Whether you take into account the flexible working hours or the fitness offers, it’s easy to see that employees are truly valued at VESCON.”
After work, Katharina and Ivy keep going: Next excursions into nature, they also participate in canine agility tournaments and of course, Ivy is also right by her side, when Katharina goes Western riding once a week - a sport in which she was state champion in Baden-Württemberg as a teenager.
After a sport-filled day, one wonders who is more tired in the evening, Katharina or Ivy?
