Excellence may sound like a buzzword, but for us, it expresses our constant appetite for innovation and technical proficiency. We consider it to be an essential ingredient of a good working environment, that's why it's one of the values that define the Qubiz Culture (aka Qubizm).

To stay true to this value, we set up an internal system that helps colleagues achieve their full potential. We constantly support our team by investing in hard and soft skills training sessions, materials, and periodic performance reviews. We compiled a list of the training sessions and conferences that our colleagues found the most useful this year. What other conferences would you recommend? Let us know in the comments section!

And so does our colleagues, so there’s a low season at the office. Sometimes you get the perception that even the time itself slows down. That’s why Summer is a great opportunity to take a step back, and think about what's the next step for you.

Outsourcing today

 The outsourcing phenomenon is definitely not a new one. We've seen a constant shift in recent years towards better and broader access to IT expertise at lower overall costs for businesses operating in the West. For companies in the DACH region, it's been increasingly obvious that countries in Eastern Europe have a distinct advantage when looking at cultural similarities, including having German-speaking experts. A recent report for 2019 by the Worldwide Group, finds that, in Romania, 33 out of 40 companies analyzed use German during service delivery.

Last Saturday we got back from our yearly Winter Ski Camp and as of today (Tuesday) I still got my mind wandering back to our trip in Jasná, Slovakia.

However, I for one am not a winter sports aficionado and still had a lot of fun in Jasná. There's a lot more to do than skiing there, but more on that in a minute.
