Competence days at Cloudworks

Competence days at Cloudworks

Three times a year, all of us at Cloudworks gather for a competence day, filled with new knowledge, teamwork, and fun. 

The competence days at Cloudworks are a tradition that we are particularly fond of! It's an opportunity for all of us from Norway, Sweden, and Denmark to come together, exchange new knowledge, strengthen our competencies, and enjoy each other's company.

One of the competence days often coincides with our annual company trip. Previously, destinations such as Romania, London, Copenhagen, and Kristiansand have set the stage for a couple of exciting and unique days where we have delved into various interesting topics in new and inspiring environments.

A varied program

Our competence days are always filled with exciting presentations and workshops. We often invite external speakers who share useful and relevant knowledge – it could be a customer sharing insights on a recent internal security incident or a partner presenting the latest technology.

Furthermore, the competence days provide an excellent chance for us to enhance our expertise in the diverse IAM products that we use on a daily basis. As a result, we consistently incorporate workshops into the program focusing on platforms such as Okta, NetIQ by OpenText, and Microsoft.

Our colleagues share insights on current topics

During the competence day, typically one or more of our colleagues will give a presentation. It could be about a relevant area or an introduction to a new product launch. We analyze and learn from customer cases, and evaluate in-house developed solutions presented as potential opportunities for our customers. Regardless of the topic, there are always great discussions and opportunities to learn something new.

Group work

During the competence days, we seize the opportunity to delve into various areas of interest. Whether it's enhancing company security, implementing new sustainability initiatives, or how we can increase the value in our deliveries to customers, we ensure to thoroughly discuss and strategize our findings for the way forward.

Additionally, we always prioritize time to go through the strategy and plans for Cloudworks' journey. In an otherwise busy workday, it's always rewarding to look ahead and ensure that we are all working towards the same goals.

Great colleagues

We work as One Cloudworks, and are good colleagues across borders. The best thing about our competence days is that we are all gathered physically. The days are filled with laughter, curiosity and positive energy. We round off the competence day with a nice dinner together, preferably followed by another social activity, and we always leave with high spirits and wonderful memories.
