Altice Labs' participation in Virtual Fairs and Workshops at Universities
In March, Altice Labs was involved in 2 events at Universities, in order to promote its image, presenting projects that can attract top students for academic and professional internships:
At the University of Trás os Montes e Alto Douro (UTAD), Altice Labs attended the "JEI - Jornadas de Engenharia Informática 2020" on the 9th, 10th and 11th of March, organized by the Computer Engineering Students Group of this university. In this event, Altice Labs was represented in a Lecture on "eHealth - Teleconsultation and Telemonitoring" led by Telma Mota from the Digital, Internet and Television department, in a Tertulia on the importance of treating Software as a product and an Engineering process with the participation of Nuno Silva from Technology and Innovation Strategy department, in a Workshop on Unity led by Ricardo Jorge Machado from the Digital, Internet and Television department and in a Job Fair represented by Gabriela Moura from the Human Resources department. This event had a massive participation of students from this university in the various sharing moments, resulting in several interviews with high potential students.
At the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), at the EBEC Porto 21 ("European BEST Engineering Competition"), on the 12th of March, which was attended by Vera Santos from the Human Resources department who guaranteed the Job Fair and got in contact with many students who are potential candidates for internships.
From these participations resulted 26 registrations from students to obtain more information and/or internships.
Remote work: How to Teambuild? MindHunters Challenge
This was the challenge launched by Altice Labs to a group of Psychology students who, during 4 weeks (between the 15th of March and the 6th of April), were working to find creative answers that could be applied to teams in a real context. This Workshop called MindHunters was promoted by NEP - "Núcleo de Estudantes de Psicologia da Universidade de Aveiro" and brought together 16 students and 2 teams from Altice Labs to find answers to this challenge.
This initiative created an opportunity where, at the same time as technical learning was promoted in the area of Work and Organizational Psychology, it was possible to find proposals of models more adjusted to this new paradigm which is remote work.
From Altice Labs side, the participating teams were BotSchool, represented by Jorge Sousa from the Network and Platform Services department and Altaia Solution, represented by Luis Castro and Cristina João Pires from the Operations Support Systems department. The development of the work was accompanied by Gabriela Moura and Vera Santos from the Human Resources Department.
On the last day of the Workshop, the teams competing in the challenge presented their proposals in Pitch format and the winner, called "As Formosas", stood out for its objectivity, creativity, adherence to the proposed objectives and execution viability. All proposals will be converted into a portfolio of possibilities that will be available to the entire management team of Altice Labs so that they can be used whenever justified, with the support of Human Resources.
