DACHS is 20-year-old!

DACHS started an all year-round platinum anniversary celebration program.  The first formal event took place on 21th April,2018, at which all the DACHS colleagues from three offices attended along with the company’s founding members.

On this special occasion, everybody gathered to plant a memorial tree in the main Budapest office campus in Graphisoft Park, which happened to be 20-year-old too.  The next activity continued as a ferry trip along the River Danube.  After lunch, everyone participated in a team of six in various exciting games and showed off individual’s knowledge and strength in multiple topics, including the company’s history.  The following activity was for each team to present their imagination of what and how an ideal DACHS office would be like.   In the end, everybody thoroughly enjoyed the activities, and more importantly, it was a good opportunity to know each other better.

As the Children’s Day on May 26 was approaching, we held a Family Day in the Miskolc Zoo.  After having lunch together, we took a stroll around the zoo and we stopped over at Lillafüred too.  Our last visit of the day was at Susa, a female badger adopted by us.  This new “family member” enthusiastically welcomed us and showed how good appetite she had.  We spent a nice day together with our colleagues and their families, and it was a wonderful event after all.

As part of the celebration program, we’re planning several other similar events in the coming months.
