240 new employees were invited to Sopra Steria's new employee kick-off meeting. Collection continued from Friday to Saturday, but employees were not paid for weekend work. This was reported by E24.

The gathering in Gardermoen last Friday and Saturday was part of the so-called Accelerate program for new graduates of Sopra Steria.

– Expectations from the role of advisor

On the program's Instagram profile, a gathering was described with “very smart speakers” from Sopra Steria who helped new employees how to organize problem solving, good tips for succeeding as a consultant and that “it's okay to make mistakes.”

The purpose of the meeting was “for the advisors to become familiar with Sopra Steria’s expectations regarding the role of the advisor.” However, the scheme was unpaid.

“Participation is voluntary, and we have received good feedback from participants over the years and we encourage all recent graduates to participate,” Christine Blix-Elton, Sopra Steria’s director of marketing and communications, wrote in an email to E24.

She adds that they want all new graduates to participate, and that the company invests a lot of time and money in organizing the weekend training course.
