Probably one of the most important things in IT&C is to always stay up to date with technologies, new developments, and to develop new skills. We all know the struggle of trying to continuous learn while having a family life, trying to keep alive your social life and keeping up with your sleep schedule.
Improving your knowledge may mean going to a workshop, reading books or taking online courses. But when you’re busy all day long it’s easy to lose sight of your goals.
In this context our colleagues from Craiova decided that it’s the time to step in and created a whole new learning and development opportunity for all of us: “STEP project: each employee’s evolution drives our evolution”.
As Craiova office works every day with some of the best experts in IT, there was no better opportunity than starting to share knowledge across the offices. Thus, every last Friday of the month Eneans engineers share their knowledge with their colleagues. Anyone who want to share interesting software engineering topics, from testing to developing, is welcomed to be a speaker.
If we woke up your interest, we expect you every last Friday of the month to join and find out how easy is to discover and learn new things.
“STEP is an opportunity to discover information about topics that seem interesting to you, but you haven’t had the chance to study them … Personally, I like the STEP experience and one of the main advantages is exactly the unexpected subject.” – Andrei
“In my opinion, the STEP initiative has not only the purpose of sharing information but also of interacting with colleagues from different locations based on common interests related to professional development. It started as a team project in Craiova but we hope to expand it to the whole company. Another advantage brought by STEP project is the chance to develop soft skills as speaker qualities and to overcome the fear of public speaking.” – Madalin
“The STEP initiative is a good idea, a project where you can not only learn something new, but you can share knowledge with your colleagues. In general, sharing knowledge is just a matter of necessity when we have a new colleague, or when the project changes. The idea of the STEP project is to give all of us the imagination to contribute. We discover new things, things that we may not even know we want to know. For the speakers, STEP is an opportunity to study a certain technology that has fueled their interest, and for the participants, STEP is an opportunity to receive some kind of crash-course in certain technologies. And it’s not just new technologies. Within STEP we can also approach concepts, methodologies, and ideas of any kind. I’m glad I was a speaker, and I look forward to future colleagues’ presentations.” – Cristian
“One of the main needs of any industry is to minimize costs. Related to this, the IT industry is the one that enjoys the possibility of adopting new types of automation in a very short time. Compared to optimizing a hardware component, which can take up to a year to get into production, optimizing memory usage can be done in a matter of hours, using an upgraded software version. I think the STEP project acts as a bridge between various members of several teams, bringing new and relevant information that helps to increase efficiency.” – Radu
As you can see Enea is already prioritizing their most important assets: Eneans. If you’re curious enough and in search of knowledge, we’re always open for a chat 😉.
