ASSMANN scheduled an exciting outdoor activity as a bonding experience for its crop of apprentices this year. A canoe trip down the river Hase was on the agenda for the fresh faces, and of course for their second and third-year colleagues as well. Elena, 1st-year apprentice, returned from the excursion with a gushing report:
"We set off on our tour from Rieste in glorious weather. Our destination was around five hours of paddling away, in Bersenbrück: the restaurant 'Zum Heidekrug'. But before we got started we received a short briefing. This included all of the safety measures we needed to observe, and also some tips on how to handle the canoe. But finally we headed off after stowing our provisions safely away!
