STORDIS is proud to announce that Jason O’Connell, who has been a trainee in our order processing department for the last three years, has successfully completed his apprenticeship and will be a full member of STORDIS as of today. Jason will continue to work for STORDIS in the order processing department and we will support his further career at our company. We strongly believe that a company’s responsibility goes beyond customer satisfaction and economic success. We consider it an obligation to offer young people a place to learn, help them develop their skills, and guide them through the working world in the best possible way.

Jason O’Connell has been one of our trainees since September 2016, during which time he has been introduced to the order processing department, the sales department, the accounting department, and our on-site warehouse, all of which have contributed towards an overall insight into a company operating worldwide with a wide range of different customers. He has benefited from experiencing a broad spectrum of activities within the company. He also took the chance to significantly improve his communication skills and learnt to cope with exceptional situations.

“I am thankful for the great support I had throughout my entire training and for the people who accompanied my personal development. At STORDIS I was being prepared not only for work but also for life. I learnt to keep up with the subject until it was completed and to always give one hundred percent, even for the smallest things which might seem unimportant,” Jason says.

Jason greatly appreciates the support he receives at STORDIS, the future prospects, and the possibilities for personal and professional development, and he gladly decided to maintain his position in the order processing department. He is very happy with the team and the positive work environment, and considers STORDIS to be forward-thinking and future-oriented.

 

We are happy that he decided to remain a part of the growing STORDIS team to pursue a promising career among colleagues. Sarah Dezordo, Jason’s trainer at STORDIS, is proud of him and his accomplishment. “It was great to have watched his personal development over this period of time and how well he has integrated himself into the team. I hope he will stay at STORDIS for a long time, and I wish him all the best for his future!”


We congratulate you on the completion of your apprenticeship and it’s great to have you with us, Jason!

The charity project ‘Mitmachen Ehrensache’ connects socially engaged teenagers and local companies to support regional non-profit youth care organisations.

In the context of the ‘International Day of Honorary Office’ STORDIS contributed to the fundraising campaign ‘Mitmachen Ehrensache’ (which translates to ‘contributing is a matter of honor’) by providing a relevant workplace to a motivated youngster.

The idea behind ‘Mitmachen Ehrensache’ is simple yet quite successful: on the campaign day, December 5th, young people from 7th grade onwards work voluntarily in a company of their choice. Instead of keeping the compensation, they donate the money for a good purpose to a regional youth project or a non-profit organisation. The activity’s focus lies on encouraging social and honorary commitment.

STORDIS was proud being able to host Mika, the 12-year old son of Volker Scheel, our senior systems engineer. The 7th-grader was highly motivated the relevant day and was exceedingly impressed by the high standard and the technical sophistication of our test lab. After he was shown our facilities and was introduced to everyone, he helped out in our technical department. He started assisting our staff with the inventory and did not hesitate when it came to vacuuming or tidying up loose cables. Later Mika assisted our technical trainee to pack network switches which were being configured for a customer, and the day concluded in a short overview of bookkeeping. The whole time Mika was curious and extremely interested in the daily working life of his father and, just like him, intrigued by the technical advancements.

“I am very proud of my son engaging in a voluntary activity such as ‘Mitmachen Ehrensache’ and that he decided to participate with STORDIS as a host. He took this very seriously and was genuinely fascinated by the technology we are working with.” (Volker Scheel, Senior Systems Engineer)

“We are aware of our responsibility to build a better future, not only in the field of networking technology, but also socially, economically and regionally. It was a privilege to be a part of ‘Mitmachen Ehrensache’ and to support and also to inspire motivated young people regarding our accomplishments.“ (Waldemar Scheck, VP Sales & Technology)

STORDIS is proud to be involved in charitable projects such as ’Mitmachen Ehrensache’ and sincerely engages in the training and the education of future networking engineers and computer scientist. STORDIS is always looking for motivated new team members to drive the advancement of open networking technology forward.
