BBQ party: Reunion after 874 days.

12 May 2022 | 

After a whopping 874 days of pandemic-related break since Christmas 2019, voestalpine group-IT finally reunited to celebrate at Stahlwelt Linz on May 12, 2022. The weather matched the grandiose mood.

At 26 degrees and bright sunshine, the seats under the sunshades quickly filled up with the nearly 500 guests in the early afternoon - the joy of reunion was huge! Cold drinks, ice cream and the wind - which almost made an umbrella fly - cooled the guests down!

The new employees (142 people since the end of 2019) quickly found each other with the long-time ones and exchanged lively ideas. Across locations and departments, people danced together, chatted, ate well, took a party photo or two and toasted. Special highlights were the personal words of the management - Rainer Jagoutz, Günter Kirsch and successor Markus Grabner as well as the speeches of the representatives of the Human Resource Management and the Works Council. The beer tapping and the pub quiz also put everyone in a good mood: congratulations once again to the winners!


The party went on until the early hours of the morning - the barbecue exceeded expectations after the long break and guaranteed anticipation for the reunions that will soon be held on a regular basis again.

Judith (Human Resource) about the BBQ Party

It was really nice to be able to exchange ideas with so many familiar and new colleagues. At the party, you could really feel what a great company we are and how great the cohesion is. I hope that we all take this feeling with us into our everyday working lives and look back on the celebration with pleasure.
