Homeoffice for hens

September 16, 2022

As part of the "Wiesbaden Engagiert!" campaign, we demonstrated once again that we can build more than just digital solutions: At the end of August, colleagues from the AOE team visited an EVIM Behindertenhilfe facility to build a species-appropriate chicken coop. And as with the projects from our day-to-day business, we had to rethink spontaneously and deal with challenging conditions: constant rain. But being the agile complexity acrobats that we are, this was of course no problem for us.

In this case, the actual end customers were the chickens: rescued from a battery of laying hens, they now live peacefully in the facility's garden. Covered and protected, however, they had only a very small house at their disposal up to now, and that was exactly what was supposed to change. So we got down to work and, despite the adverse weather conditions, implemented the project together with EVIM employees.

The human residents were also happy about the visit and the new home for their feathered housemates – and also about the opportunity to prepare a meal for their guests. This was then eaten together after the building. In the end, everyone went home happy and content – especially the chickens.

About „Wiesbaden Enagiert!“

This year, for the 18th time, the „Wiesbaden Engagiert!“ action week brought together non-profit organizations and companies in joint projects. AOE employees have already taken part in the past – we also support the project with our development expertise by advising and implementing improvements to the software used. For the day of action, the AOE participants get the day off.

We would like to thank everyone from the AOE team who made this day possible and look forward to the next action week!
