Review of the year 2021

Finally live again: Our Autumn GFT-/VAF-Conference 2021 in Leipzig.

In 2021, too, it was hard to separate from the topic of Covid - and yet this year was characterised by much more than just the pandemic. GFT looks back on an eventful 2021.



For the first time, GFT conducts the annual round-table discussions with the Executive Board and Supervisory Board in spring as a digital format.

The es2000 performance circle meets digitally to discuss the introduction of the new esoffice 12.0 and the GFTWAWI.

GFT-/VAF-Autumn Conference 2021 - Meeting in person and having good conversations

In September 2021, after an absence of almost 2 years due to the pandemic, the GFT once again offered a communication platform for an industry meeting with over 140 participants from members and contract suppliers with the GFT/VAF Autumn Conference. From 30 September to 1 October 2021, GFT and VAF jointly invited participants to the HYPERION Hotel Leipzig.

A total of 18 GFT contract suppliers presented their highlights at the autumn conference as part of the accompanying trade exhibition.

Various statements on the challenges, solutions and strategies - on the one hand from the perspective of the ICT system house as a provider and on the other hand from the perspective of the UCC/TK provider - were formed under the main topic "An industry on the way to the cloud!?" This was followed by stimulating discussions on the experiences and perspectives with the participation of the members.

During the evening event, the guests used the time for networking.

The second day of the event was also very exciting with the presentation topics "Solving company succession in a structured and tax-optimised way", "Recruiting Trends 2021" and "Presentation of Ecoprofit".

In the closing lecture "Head or gut? Making the Right Decisions in Times of Big Data", this year's keynote speaker Prof. Dr. Volker Busch gave an overview of the possibilities and limits of the mind in decision-making in the work process.
