Don’t Miss the Digital Train
The 365 ACADEMY training programme is not slowing down; on the contrary, it is adding additional courses and webinars
ince March, thousands of employees have expanded their range of skills not only in the use of Office 365 but also in the world of new shared digital technologies more broadly. Access to the training platform and a lot of practical information on the training and webinars on offer can be found on the Office 365 information page on ŠKODA Space.
In September, we will again offer the opportunity to participate in so-called crash courses. “They will include three intensive one-hour workshops where participants will learn the most important things needed for working with Office 365”, explains Martin Horák from SEA/1 – New Media/Language Training. These courses are followed by team workshops where colleagues work together to find their way with new shared work tools that will make it easier for them to cooperate within a team. It is also an opportunity to decide, for example, which repositories will be used for what. Practical workshops also take place every Friday. In total, they are divided into seven thematic areas, one lasting approximately 30 minutes. It introduces, for example, work in MS Teams, document sharing, Outlook 365 and more. “The advantage is that, in addition, to lecturers, there are also IT workers who can provide advice and practical solutions for specific situations”, adds Horák.
The training also reflects the release of new tools. Recently, for example, this applies to PowerApps, which allows you to quickly create your own applications for business needs. “However, the 365 ACADEMY is not just about Office 365 products but also about expanding general awareness and skills in the digital world; therefore, you can also find videos and other materials focused on productivity, security and more on the 365 ACADEMY portal”, adds Radka Bürger from SEA/1.

Career Map helps you to find your potential
KODA AUTO offers its employees a wide range of development activities, thanks to which they can keep enriching their professional life. It is important that everyone find the right path, and in this respect, the new Career Map is very useful. As a support tool for employee development, it focuses on providing basic orientation and stimuli for thinking about the next steps in personnel development. It helps to find a suitable career direction and provides stimuli for discussion between the employee and their supervisor. The Career Map will serve both the employees to keep developing and their supervisors to help to identify employees’ potential. Therefore, it can be approached from these two angles. Then, you move within four blocks, which should be browsed step by step. The first focuses on the current situation and expectations, the others on career planning, preparation and further development, and finally, on future plans. In the blocks, you will find worksheets that you can fill out and save or print. These include the Selection of Appropriate Career Direction, Basic Prerequisites for Career Paths and the Development Plan. Among other add-ons, you can use development tips or links to obtain additional information. The use of the Career Map is voluntary, and it is up to you whether and to what extent it will serve you. The SE/1 – Career Management team hopes that the Career Map will benefit and inspire you. ED
A career is not an escalator. In most cases, it’s an approach in which you systematically and gradually identify the opportunities and possibilities that are available and use them in a targeted manner. The Career Map is great to support this process.
