Motivation on the fixed rope route

For certain topics, external experts are booked in addition to internal trainers, and unusual seminar locations are chosen. For example, a course on “How to motivate myself and my employees” took place at a dizzying height, in the middle of a via ferrata.

New year, new program

“In the past academy year, over 300 employees attended 40 different courses”,
says Claudia Probst, Head of Human Resources Development at Russmedia.

At the end of each academy year, the new program is finally developed as closely as possible to the employees based on the feedback from the participants.


 “The Russmedia Academy leadership seminar prepared me very well for the daily work of a young manager. In addition, the exchange of experiences with other colleagues was very valuable.”
