Insights into GBA Group

David Ommer
CONTROLLING
Laboratorium für Klinische Forschung (LKF), Schwentinental, in the company since 2018

David Ommer

Concentrate on potential solutions, not so much on the problem

What’s the most fun aspect of your job?

Working together with great colleagues here at LKF and at the headquarters in Hamburg to advance LKF and helping shape the integration into the GBA Group regarding various controlling topics.

What do you like best about your work at the GBA Group?

The variety of the company and the dynamic development of the GBA Group, which I was already able to experience first-hand while working together with the headquarters on various projects.

Do you have a (professional) role model?

I don’t have a specific role model, but rather a general attitude to always approach new tasks with an open mind and unbiased, and concentrate on potential solutions, not so much on the problem.

Vanessa Hageman
CHEMICAL LABORATORY ASSISTANT
GBA Gesellschaft für Bioanalytik mbH, Hamburg, in the company since 2016

Vanessa Hageman

Even though it’s often stressful in the lab, there’s never a lack of fun

Why do you do the job you have now?

When I was in school, the natural sciences were always the subjects that were the easiest for me, so it was clear to me at a relatively young age that I also wanted to do something in this direction professionally. At first, I decided to study food chemistry, but I stopped due to personal reasons. Afterwards, I successfully completed my professional training as a laboratory assistant at GBA and since then I also became responsible for supervising the trainees here.

What is the most positive aspect of the GBA Group for you?

In my opinion, it’s the nice colleagues and the relaxed atmosphere. Even though it’s often stressful in the lab, there’s never a lack of fun. Some of my colleagues have also become really good friends of mine who I also enjoy meeting with in my free time.

The ocean or the mountains?

Tough question, I’d like to combine both of them, but if I had to decide, I guess I would take the mountains. Especially since my trip to Norway in 2019 I have been quite fond of them.

Mario Frick
IT INFRASTRUCTURE TEAM

Mario Frick

With the growth of the GBA Group and the desire for change, I have had the opportunity to help shape the future of the company

What is the most fun aspect of your job?

It’s actually the range of tasks, the flexibility, the variety, and the personal contact with people.

Why do you do the job you have now?

My journey into IT was determined by a random occurrence in my youth. Now I see that taking this step was really a stroke of luck.

What should the GBA Group still continue to work on?

The GBA Group is on the right path, but in my opinion, there’s still more work to do in terms of organization and it needs more courage to make faster decisions.

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

When I was a child, I wanted to be a pilot, because I was very interested in aviation in general, and still am today.

What is the most positive aspect of the GBA Group for you?

In my opinion, the most positive aspect is the GBA Group’s continuing development. With the constant growth of the company, a diverse range of new positions are generated. That results in opportunities to develop yourself professionally and perhaps climb the career ladder further.

The ocean or the mountains?

It’s a tough decision for me, but I can’t go without the ocean. I grew up directly at the Mediterranean and so I feel really connected with the water.

The sustainability

Our strengths:

Team chemistry.

The chemistry is right, and not just with our analyses. Supporting one another is something that goes without saying - even as the company grows, we do our best to maintain this.

Knowledge with passion.

We enjoy doing our work. Of course, it can also be stressful at times, but we always get the opportunity to develop ourselves in the course of our work.

Growing together.

For us that means that the opportunities for individuals should grow along with the company. New chances, prospects, and opportunities to move up - our journey together has only just begun.

Flexible working hours.

Our working hours are not written in stone, so we can arrange them according to our individual needs. If there are circumstances in our personal lives that necessitate it, there is also the possibility to take extra vacation or a leave of absence.

Boredom is for other companies.

In contrast, working at our company is dynamic and provides a good combination of variety and new, exciting challenges.

Steep learning curve.

We are convinced that our knowledge becomes greater when we share it with one another. Thanks to intensive knowledge transfer, we continue to develop ourselves and can master new challenges.

Freedom of ideas.

We take every suggestion to heart, because ideas are our catalyst. Recommendations for improvements are always welcomed with open arms and open minds.

The chemistry really works at our place – and not only when it comes to analysis.

Teamwork is a decisive factor in the success and rapid growth of the GBA Group in recent years. Togetherness is important to us and our philosophy revolves around open and honest communication. We embrace new challenges and solve them together – the ones we set ourselves and the ones presented to us by our customers.

Things never come to a standstill at the GBA Group and there’s no place for boredom. Dynamism in in our DNA. We invest in the future; in new ideas, knowledge and perspectives. Nothing is set in stone, everything is in flux. Do you have an idea how we can improve our processes, increase profits and support our customers even more effectively? Talk to us, we’d love to hear from you. And vice versa: we are convinced that our knowledge pool will grow if we share with others. We are constantly striving to develop fresh perspectives for our company and for every single member of our team.

Our management strategy has a clear focus on trustworthy cooperation and reliable partnerships, generating an atmosphere of mutual confidence and respect

At the same time, management sets clear frameworks and aims: we all strive towards a common goal to ensure success for GBA. Getting the very best results for our customers relies on the collective efforts of the whole team.

And what else influences the environment in the GBA Group? You too can play a part! Naturally, we want our staff to be proactive and demonstrate commitment to the cause. In return, we are, of course, more than willing to listen to our employees’ wishes and concerns. Compatibility is more than just a word when it comes to family and professional life – flexibility and individual solutions are part of our concept.

Does this strike a chord with you? Are you interested in a role, which is rich in variety and comes with individual responsibilities? Are you ready to work in a highly professional, quality-oriented team? Do you want to make things happen? Can you be one of the people to shape the future of the GBA Group?
