New office building: This is what new work looks like at msg location Passau

Feb 14, 2023

The IT and consulting company msg celebrates the opening of its new office building.

Munich, February 14, 2023 - After a construction time of over two years, the extension building with an office area of 3,200 square meters was opened at the msg location in Passau. Adjacent to the already modernized existing building, the new office building offers additional usable space on five floors. The doors of the new building have been open to the more than 600 employees since January 2023. Numerous guests of honor from politics and business attended the opening ceremony in Passau.

New work environments for a new work culture

“The opening of the new building is a new milestone for the Passau location in its soon-to-be 25-year history,” says location manager Dr. Armin Bender during the opening days. The new premises are entirely in line with the motto "New work environments" or "New work". Besides individual offices that can be booked flexibly, a largely open-plan layout ensures a relaxed exchange of ideas, according to Dr. Bender. In addition, the office architecture supports the concept of new working environments which makes it one of the most modern office buildings in all of Lower Bavaria.

“The way people want to work has changed rapidly with the pandemic. In the future, offices will be used mainly for collaborative and creative work in teams and less for individual work. Our new work principle promotes creative exchange, while still allowing concentrated and undisturbed individual work in quiet areas,” emphasizes the location manager. Especially in times of an increasing shortage of skilled workers, it is essential to offer employees attractive and flexible work models.

msg location Passau on a steady growth curve

Since opening in October 1998 with six employees, the msg location in Passau has grown steadily to more than 600 employees today. “As the second largest private-sector employer in the city as well as the largest software employer in Lower Bavaria, we can offer our employees the job security and advantages of a “large medium-sized company”. We experience a relaxed atmosphere in our teams alongside the "spirit of Passau," says Dr. Bender. Regionality and informal interactions are particularly important and deeply anchored in the corporate culture. Thus, on the second of the two opening days, employees' families were able to tour the new building. Moreover, the office and meeting rooms bear the names of regional places like Glaspalast, Severinstor, Triftsperre or Ilzschleife.

The site is set to grow further in the coming years. According to Dr. Bender, the topic of training plays a key role here. In addition to cooperation with various vocational schools, there is close collaboration with the University of Passau and the Technical University of Deggendorf (THD), where msg operates its own software lab.
