Welcome to GameDuell! Great to have you with us!
Building a successful and efficient team includes a great onboarding, integration of new team members and connecting everyone within and across teams. We are delighted with each new team member, making GameDuell better with each addition! As a part of this process, GameDuell established a Newbie Event, to connect our new team members with each other and make them feel welcome and part of the family. So, what exactly do we do at these events? Of course we play and we eat, the best way to get to know each other!
LGBT*I*QA+ workshop recap: Revising the Code - Gender and Sexual Diversity in the context of Gaming
We strive for our culture at GameDuell to allow everyone to express who they are, which enables us to apply our talents, broaden our horizons, and ensure the acceptance and promotion of diversity.
Therefore, and in honor of this year's Pride Month in June, we decided to run a workshop to help us learn, grow, and offer a workplace culture that benefits everyone.
Healthy Minds Training
We wanted to provide our team members with some tools that help us to focus on the positive things, do away with negative thoughts, and make us feel relaxed and relieved, in order to face our day with more lightness, joy and ease, create nice experiences together, and contribute to our company goal which is a positive and fun team spirit!
Q&A: Visa & Relocation to Berlin
Moving from one country to another can be quite challenging. We want to share with you how GameDuell can assist you step by step if you want to start your career with us and move to Berlin, one of Europe’s most historic and iconic cities. We’ll also answer some frequently asked questions.
Diversity is strength!
"What is your personal definition of diversity?" - Last year on Diversity Day 2020, we asked our team members this question and received many different, unique, and wonderful answers. It showed us that even the definition of the term diversity and the connection that people have with it is so diverse in itself that this question cannot be answered easily.
This is why we would like to dig a little bit deeper this year and find more answers to this question.
Behind the Scenes: Office Team
The first people to greet us when we enter our GameDuell office and the last ones we wave goodbye to at the end of the day are the lovely ladies on our office team. They’ve certainly acquired some superpowers in order to master our daily office trouble. However, we only see a small fraction of their support for us every day. So let's take a look behind the scenes to see what we would be missing without them.
Playing for Tolerance
Games thrive on fair interaction in which everyone has an equal chance. Playing connects people and everyone at a game table is equal, no matter their age, gender, origin, or beliefs.
Everyone is entitled to have a good time.
This can also be applied to life away from the gaming tables. Everybody should be able to have a good time and feel valued.
That's why GameDuell supports the statement "Playing for Tolerance".
Behind the Scenes: Green Team
From the very beginning, Charity@GameDuell was a top priority for our company and we still maintain this long-standing tradition to this day. But as we have grown, so have our opportunities and desire to make a difference. That is why we founded our Green Team in 2009. In addition to our charity projects, the Green Team takes care of all topics related to the sustainability of GameDuell.
