Blieskastel, 8th July 2016

Hager Forum, one year on!

On 4th July 2015, after 21 months of hard work, Hager Forum was officially opened in the presence of members of the Hager family plus one hundred guests and officials.

This unique space of over 6,500 m², dedicated to training and innovation is located at Hager Group’s largest production site in Obernai, Alsace, France.
During the first year over 14,000 people, including 180 international customer groups, visited and had the opportunity to experience this new dynamic.

Hager Forum was designed to respond to the need to adapt the group’s working methods to the realities of tomorrow, making them more collaborative and interconnected. The ambition of Hager Forum is to reinvent the way in which Hager Group interacts with the surrounding community and the world at large.

Daniel Hager, CEO of Hager Group, who initiated the project in 2011, commented, “A year after its official opening, I feel completely satisfied with Hager Forum and its first year of operation. This project has exceeded our expectations. Hager Forum team and the different stakeholders have managed to make it a real meeting place where people come together to share ideas, right at the heart of our community – and this for both colleagues and customers. ”

Hager Forum is first and foremost a meeting place, it also plays the role of catalyst, pathfinder and amplifier, boosting innovation and contributing to the development of Hager Group. In this context, more than 50 events have been organised by Hager Forum so far. Innovative formats that were discovered during the Trend Sessions, Creativity Week and Positive Impact Week, have allowed to position Hager Forum as an open, collaborative space.

Hager Forum has hosted many local and national events such as the Energy Performance Symposium for companies organised by the region body ADEME and the Franco-German AAL Days which focused on ambient assisted living in the home.

“The events and activities here are becoming more and more dynamic, I am confident that this will continue. We are going to make even more progress, and Hager Forum will allow us to promote and support our company’s shift in culture and its further development,” added Daniel Hager.
