How can we tell the story of a company, our company? We have also thought about this. After all, GAMBIT Consulting has been around for 25 years now.
Sure, we could have made a chronicle at this point (and we even started with it), but then we noticed: This does not fit to us at all.
Well, there are already some outstanding data, that's not how it is. 1995 for example, the year of our foundation. Ten young people set off together back then. They take a risk and want to create something of their own. GAMBIT started as a spin-off of HT Troplast, specialized in SAP from the beginning. Or the year 2013, our move to our office building at Junkersring in Troisdorf - that is also a milestone that would certainly have appeared in a chronicle.
But for us, GAMBIT is much more than just a few years or a series of facts. Or would you like to read when we first attended the CEBIT in Hanover or when SAP awarded us "SAP Gold Partner"? (If you really want to know, we'd be happy to tell you.) But what's much more important is that we've always been our customers' partners, that they come to us and feel at home with us. Much more important are the relationships we have built and cultivated over the years - with customers and employees, with sponsors and companions. And much more important is the fact that we still have a working atmosphere that is actually family. But no chronicle tells you all this.
Yes, it's true that many companies claim to be a "big family". But it's really true with us. Most of our founders are still on board, as are many of our first employees. We have worked together a lot and hard, experienced numerous successes (and admittedly, one or two failures as well), travelled together, saw the children of our colleagues grow up, celebrated together privately and were happy together about new projects, new customers or simply about a rainbow.
This spirit, this understanding of cooperation, still shapes us today. And that this is the case is also noticed by those who start as new employees at GAMBIT - and thus become part of our community and our history themselves.
Those who come to GAMBIT should do so every day with joy, they should feel the work as a part and an enrichment of their own life. This is still true today. And it applies in the future.
