“I enjoy the pleasant as well as productive culture of collaboration without hierarchies at ifok.”

Daniel Gaumann

What made you decide to work at ifok?

What excites me about ifok is the fact that it combines three aspects that are essential for me to have fun at work: On the one hand, that’s the topics concerning the organization of complex and lasting transformations of society, politics and the economy. On the other hand, you have a unique combination of smart, motivated and unpretentious colleagues. And last but not least there is the pleasant as well as productive culture of collaboration without hierarchies.

How long have you been part of the ifok team and where were you before?

I joined the team in early 2022 and am working from the Bensheim office. In my life before ifok I worked for the Deutsche Bahn company in different positions and gained valuable experiences as a consultant for Strategy & Operations and sustainable business transformations.

What sets you apart at the office? 

It is my ambition not to neglect fun, personal contact and appreciation while keeping the drive for excellent and focused work.

Which three things should not be missing on your next holiday? 

One of my bikes as well as a big pile of issues of the weekly newspaper Die Zeit which I did not get to read yet – both of wich come up short quite often in my everyday life. Additionally, time and leisure for culinary discoveries and enjoyments. Especially the latter has frequently lead to our baggage doubling in the timespan between our arrival and our departure.
