GOOD Family Advent

Our feelgood management team planned an extra special treat for our employees and their children this year, and transformed our café to hold the first ever GOOD Family Advent! This event was a great way to engage with our employees with young families.  With over 1,100 employees currently in our Goodgame Studios team, we definitely have a growing Goodgame family! We invited all Goodgamers to bring their little ones to this festive evening. In total, over 50 children joined us at our café and were greeted by the Christmas angel.

The right leadership for successful growth

Here at Goodgame Studios, we strive to  engage  our managers with thought provoking training seminars. We recently welcomed Henning Böhne, Executive Partner of the Malik Group, for the latest lecture in our Incentive series. Over 100 of our managers participated in his presentation titled, “Good growth through good leadership”.

While growth and constant change are nothing new to Goodgame, they still pose a big challenge. Every month, approximately 50 new employees join our company and expand our existing teams or create completely new ones. To ensure that all of them feel settled here and can get down to work straightaway, we need more than just our already outstanding working atmosphere. We need excellent managers too. The talk addressed precisely this point and provided a good source of knowledge and inspiration for our heads, leads, and senior management.

VIP News: Santa Claus and the Grinch sighted at the Goodgame Christmas party!

This year we celebrated our company’s much awaited Christmas party on December 5th. Our team worked their magic to transform the Edelfettwerk venue into a winter wonderland just for this special event. Employees were first welcomed into the outdoor square for their very own Christmas market stocked with sumptuous snacks, mulled wine, hot cocktails etc. The party then proceeded indoors where the venue was glittering with festive decorations and small market stands were set-up to serve a delectable dinner buffet. Adding on to that, to satisfy our sweet cravings there were exclusive crepe and baked apple stands. Just like at every proper German Christmas market, packs of roasted almonds helped to satisfy the needs of even the most discerning sweet tooth.

Mission: “Wellness” – Feelgood at Goodgame Studios

Goodgame Studios currently employs more than 1000 employees – and since September, our coworker Sophie has been busy ensuring the wellbeing of every single person working here. Her job: feelgood manager.

“There’s no such thing as a classic feelgood manager!” said the 29 year old, who already has experience providing coaching in a variety of companies. A feelgood manager’s duties vary according to the company culture. One of her tasks here is to build a sense of unity and solidarity among the GGS employees who come from across 50 nations. A large part of Sophie’s work involves dialogue, from informal “chats” to short-term, solution-oriented coaching sessions. She is always on hand to advise and support the various departments on issues such as working with multicultural teams.  Read more

Fairy tales and MySQL – the PHP user group visits Goodgame Studios

On November 11th, we once again played host to the PHP User Group Hamburg. Before the presentations began, we gave the participants a studio tour so they could get to get to know Goodgame Studios a little better. Our colleagues Anett and Benjamin guided our guests around the Goodgame campus, affording them an exclusive look behind the scenes of our company. Our large PHP department certainly left an impression, with 54 team members working on projects including our shop system, landing pages, and integrating our games into our partner sites. Many of them are members of the user group and had already shared their knowledge at previous events. Read more
