“The Next Level. Together.” is the guiding principle of TÜV SÜD’s corporate strategy. We work together to advance the company and continue bringing safety and certainty to society in the age of digital technology.
But what exactly is the next level? We believe that it also concerns the many small-scale innovations and developments through which our people at TÜV SÜD make our services a little better day by day. Varied, imaginative, committed, and sometimes unconventional. They are what this magazine is all about.
The method we used to create the magazine was unconventional, too. We asked a young journalist to explore three areas of our company. Unbiased, objective, and with the fresh eyes only an “outsider” can provide.
Finally, the conditions: In the coronavirus pandemic, exceptional flexibility is paramount for research, photo shoots, and video productions. On-site filming in China and Thailand was replaced with video calls, local photographers, and email interviews. A new experience for everyone involved, and a perfect example of a step to a new level.
Melissa Schulte (24) first
encountered TÜV SÜD
in 2018 during an internship
semester as part of her technical
journalism studies. Now recently
graduated, the young journalist
from Mainz, Germany is currently
engaged in various projects including
overseeing PR activities for the
regional Scouting organization in the
German state of Hesse. She was
particularly fascinated by the diversity
of the tasks performed by TÜV SÜD:
“I was amazed at the number of areas
in our lives in which the company
provides safety and certainty.”
