We’re thrilled that you enjoyed the series and thank you for your interest and kind feedback.

So much so, that we have decided to go for an encore.

Why anyone can benefit from a fun lunch-time run

Why anyone can benefit from a fun lunch-time run

It’s not only about sport but also about physical activity and socializing.

My passion is running. If you’re a runner yourself you know the great feeling after a nice training session on the track or a long run in the forest. I want to motivate people to start running, to support people who recently started running or those who would like to get going again. That’s why I offer the Company Sports course “running technique training for beginners”.

Tattoos at the adidas Group; inked up and proud! (Part 2)

Tattoos at the adidas Group; inked up and proud! (Part 2)

In part one of our two-part series, we interviewed three of our employees and learned about their views on the acceptance of their tattoos in the adidas Group workplace.

To kick off part two of our series, I wanted to find out from a seasoned adidas Group veteran if there was similar sentiment. This led me to Janette, Global Operations Technical Manager, and over seven years at the adidas Group. I asked Janette if she thought she might not get the job because of her tattoos. Janette: “This definitely crossed my mind, but I decided to get my sleeve after already being with the adidas Group for seven years and didn’t feel my tattoos would be a factor in my future endeavors at the adidas Group.” It was quite the opposite of what I would expect. Janette felt even more comfortable with her visible ink as she continued to grow within our organization.

The Next Black – our part in the future of clothing

The Next Black – our part in the future of clothing

When you get the opportunity to be part of something inspiring, you enjoy every moment of it. This was how I felt when I had the first conference call with a team of producers on their way to film a documentary about the future of clothing. Within minutes we began bouncing ideas and after half an hour it was clear that they would come to Herzogenaurach and meet some of the people working on the future of sportswear at adidas. This was when the fun began in earnest.

Tattoos at the adidas Group; inked up and proud!

Tattoos at the adidas Group; inked up and proud!

(Part 1 of 2) Back in March we wrapped up our three-part series on Globetrotter careers, one of the adidas Group’s top employer attributes. Our employees also identified Originality as another of the top reasons for joining the adidas Group and remaining inspired in their career. Originality is as much about diversity within the adidas Group as it is about the flexibility for our people to simply be themselves. This may seem like a no-brainer but it’s likely we’ve all experienced cultures where we are pressured to be something we’re not. So we decided to take a bit of a non-traditional approach to writing about diversity in the workplace for this story; we decided to take a look at our employees who are inked up and proud.
