Due to the global corona pandemic, many people are currently spending an unusually large amount of time at home. Almost all Allgeier employees have also been working from their home offices for many weeks. The Allgeier team includes more than 10,000 colleagues in 28 countries on five continents – and their families. Whether in Germany or the USA, in Australia, Finland, Romania, China, South Africa, Mauritius or India – the Corona crisis poses great challenges for us all equally. The curfews for the younger members of the family are particularly difficult. Schools remain closed, relationships with friends and classmates are restricted as a result, and many students do not know how to cope with schoolwork in their own homes.
In this difficult phase, Allgeier supports its employees and their families around the globe with a variety of measures. One example is the initiative “Allgeier Kids United” of Allgeier Education. Allgeier Education is an expert in e-learning and provides digital qualification and education with innovative learning environments. With its digital classrooms, Allgeier Education supports schools in Germany in digital learning.
Within the framework of “Allgeier Kids United”, all children and youths from the Allgeier Group are invited to participate in the English and German language programs free of charge within six weeks. The high-quality digital language trainings are conducted by experienced language trainers for the different age groups and skill levels. In a virtual environment, Allgeier kids and teens can learn together, build new relationships with other children and teenagers from the worldwide Allgeier family and have fun communicating in another language.
Within just a few hours, several hundred children had registered. They now meet in a total of 80 groups across different time zones for the virtual language courses. Allgeier is pleased to get them excited about digital learning and to further intensify the intercultural exchange within the Group.
