“Orientation Day helped me gain an overview of Bertelsmann’s businesses and divisions, and outlined a clear career path for talents. The dynamic of the event was very inspiring and entertaining, and has motivated me to take more courses in the future.”

"Orientation Day provided me with an opportunity to meet various interesting and intelligent colleagues who, like me, bring great passion and energy to their work. As a result, I really felt like part of a bigger team. In addition, it was nice to spend some time getting to know my foreign colleagues and learn more about their challenges. And above all it was fascinating to discover so many new companies within the Bertelsmann group that I wasn’t even aware of since joining RTL in the Netherlands."
