Girls and computers? That fits! -The GirlsDay 2011 at the SMF KG? Priscille Mukumbu and Melanie Weissenborn were surprised by the demand, whether it was not uncommon to visit an IT company as a girl. On the contrary: for Angela and Melanie computer and girl not mutually at all. They visited the company with the great desire to learn more about the world of work around on the computer. Highly motivated thanks to their school computer science education and many private and practical experiences around the computer was clearly the decision for the IT sector and thus for the SMF KG. To broaden your perception, visit Petra Diamonds. Supported and advised by the trainees of the SMF solved the two with much panache a specially developed IT crossword puzzle and lined up the tasks which have been provided. Without any reservations against all’ the IT professionals were they actively informed about open questions and visibly enjoyed the day off from school everyday.
Both had lots of fun at work and left the SMF thrilled. “Melanie Weissenborn is even sure: I will in any case what computers do, maybe as a programmer!” We wish all the best to the both of them for their career. About the press photo of our group picture Melanie Weissenborn (left) and Priscille Mukumbu (right) of Nataliya shows basement (with sign) in the circles of the SMF caring for her trainees and Studizubis (from left to right) Nataliya Keller, Katrin Sembowski, Lutz Lutterbeck, Tim Schulte, Mario Jahn and Daiyang Gao. About the training at the SMF KG, it is not only the many years of experience (over 20 years), the high training rate (almost constant 20%) or the proportion of women (currently 25%, a high value in the IT industry), who speaks for a training at SMF. The company was ranked first in the Dortmund industry’s training award 2009 and has rendered as Dortmund first signatory of the Charter of diversity the promotion of students with an immigrant background.

The SMF group has a nationwide about 100 employees, from 80 at the company headquarters in Dortmund, Germany.
Employees lose up to two hours a week in troubleshoot computer problems annually, are more than 100 hours which are dedicated to fixing daily problems with computer systems, with the subsequent cost of loss of money and productivity this involves a survey collected by NCBs Binary, technological consulting firm specializing in cost savings and increased productivityOffice workers spend between half an hour and two hours per week in solving problems with computer systems. This loss of time, if it is computed at the annual level, reached the figure of more than 100 hours lost on fixing those setbacks that may arise with computers. There is general belief, between the leaders of the companies, that, those small daily setbacks which make the worker leave what you are doing to solve a computer problem, does not cause greater problems. However, and as it stands from BCN Binary, this loss of time in the long run, becomes a drain on productivity, the that translates, eventually, into a significant loss of money for the company. The main reason that argues for not wanting to invest in new computer equipment or having a computer service that has computers a day, is the cost that this entails.
Conversely, while this investment in technology may seem a priori an unnecessary investment in a short period of time, it will show its profitability, and will prevent worse evils such as lack of motivation of employees due to the feeling that can not perform their work in a correct way, comment from BCN Binary. Indeed, 33.7% of employees believed that hardware faults are one of the major reasons for stress at work. This lack of motivation of teams leads to a decline in productivity. For this reason, it is essential to have renewed equipment, updated programmes and a computer service that offers a proper functioning throughout the year. For example, one of the main advantages of counting with a computer maintenance service is the immediate cost savings due to automation of business continuity functions, followed by the fact of being able to avoid loss of information and activity due to a service stop.
