Home office - working with a view

Working from home has been firmly established at Waldhart Software for several years now. As a company with a hybrid working model, we draw on the best of different worlds to create a productive and fulfilling working atmosphere. In addition to the option of working in the company building, from home or remotely, we place great value on exercise in the fresh air and a connection to nature - principles that are anchored in our mission statement.

Customer consultant Michael Tschöll has taken our corporate values to heart and combined exercise in the fresh air with working in nature. After an energising start to the day with some early-bird skiing on the Rosskopf, he moved his office to the Sterzingerhaus for a day and enjoyed the inspiring working environment in the "hut office". In this blog post, Michael shares his experiences with us: how does it feel to work at 1930 metres above sea level in the midst of a mountain backdrop and how do you stay productive?

Exercise in the fresh air is known to boost creativity, concentration and productivity, which is why I set off at 7.00 am for early-bird skiing on the Rosskopf in Sterzing. The ski resort opens early on Fridays so that skiers, tobogganists and winter hikers can enjoy the sunrise. I've often taken the opportunity to be the first on the slopes before work to make my tracks in the fresh, untouched snow. Today, however, I have my laptop in my rucksack, as I'm going to stay in the ski resort and spend my working day there.

After this sporty start to the day and a visit to the ski school office of the Sterzing ski school with Fabian Bernmeister, I set up my workplace in the Sterzingerhaus at 1930 metres. My early morning descent has not only cleared my head, but also awakened my hunger, so I treat myself to a delicious breakfast in a mountain hut before concentrating on my work. And indeed - after this energising start to the day, even more ideas bubble up and I work productively until the lunch break. I take another breath of fresh mountain air while skiing and enjoy my lunch on the sun terrace of the Sterzingerhaus

The afternoon flies by in this cosy and quiet environment, and at 4 p.m. I pack my rucksack with satisfaction and head back down into the valley. The hut office works very well as long as the internet connection is stable, and the tasks are well planned. This allows me to concentrate on my work and enjoy the best of different worlds at the same time: Skiing early in the morning on freshly groomed pistes, experiencing the untouched snow and the mountain panorama and then being motivated to work in the midst of this backdrop: for me, this is the perfect combination of remote work and experiencing nature. I am happy and grateful that I can do my job at Waldhart Software in this way.

Special thanks go to the hut hosts Tom and Walter, who reserved a place for me in their parlour away from the busy tables of their other guests. Without their hospitality, my trip to the hut office would not have been half as cosy and successful.
