Experience companies up close and personal
The economy in the Dahme-Spreewald district is constantly in flux: new companies are setting up, expanding their operations or investing in new technologies. However, what goes on behind the factory gates in modern production and service processes, and where attractive jobs and training positions may be waiting, often remains hidden. The first “Dahme-Spreewald Long Night of Business” was initiated in 2015 under the patronage of District Administrator Stephan Loge with the aim of bringing curious young people and committed employers together.
Every two years since that time, schoolchildren, students, job and training-place seekers, professionals from blue-collar workers to academics and people with a general interest have had the opportunity to watch employees at work at an unusual time of the day and to talk directly to them. From 5:00 to 11:00 p.m., companies from the region open their doors and present themselves, their technologies, working processes, products and services. Organised bus tours take visitors to places where otherwise only employees have access.
