In detail

ABB is an international energy and automation company that depends on the expertise of its internal workforce. This is why every member of staff who works for ABB Switzerland for 15, 25, 40 or 50 years receives a special thank you from the company in the form of a festival at the Trafo complex in Baden. The event is attended by up to 500 employees each year. The atmosphere at this event was certainly festive, with actress Melanie Winiger serving as the compère for the event, which included dinner and a show. The employees celebrating their milestone achievements were taken on a journey through time: together with Tagesschau presenter Andrea Vetsch, Live Lab put on a fictitious news report focusing on impressions and innovations back when the staff members started at ABB. There was much laughter when the spotlight shone on the ‘ground-breaking’ Natel C mobile phone – the size of a suitcase – and when Andrea Vetsch presented a segment in the robotic style of a 1960s TV anchor. Live Lab has supported ABB’s event since 2011. We look forward to being able to celebrate with the same employees once again in five years’ time.
