Culture and team spirit drive Oracle’s Amsterdam hub

When Gökhan Bagir, Oracle Digital Sales Representative, and his colleagues took on the enterprise of laying the grounds of the first Oracle Digital Sales team in the multicultural city of Amsterdam, they knew it would be a challenging task. They were looking at a steep learning curve and a need to integrate newcomers into the company’s culture, systems, processes and product understandings. Fortunately, Gökhan had the right attitude and ideas for the task at hand, as well...

Communities at Work: Why They Matter in Your Career Path

Coming from the creative industry with background in PR and communications, I tend to draw my daily motivation and energy from the people I work with. Hence, it is my personal belief that the reasoning behind a career choice should go beyond the job description and the financial rewards that come with it: work environment and culture are key factors that drive my decision to change a job or company.

I Survived the Corporate Games for Another Year (Just)

Over the weekend I again had the opportunity to compete in the Australian Corporate Games which were held here in Melbourne, Australia. This is the 4th year in a row that I have competed in the Corporate Games and I think it is great that Oracle continues to support and encourage us to participate in these types of events. The events I was in took place on Saturday morning - it was a pretty hectic morning for me as the 5km run was held at 8:00 am and our 3 basketball games...

For those of you who are not aware I also blog on another website (talamelli.wordpress.com). This 2nd blog allows me to give a more rounded view about my life and talk not only about Oracle and Recruitment, but also about other things as well. Last week I posted a blog entry titled "Nike+ iPod Why Didn't I Buy You Earlier". I have been going for 3-8 km runs for the past 3-4 years about 3-4 times a week. I do this not because I want to compete in a marathon or break some...

It's Not All About Bits and Bytes but Also Fun and Frolic Too by Pushpalatha Sreenivasan

“All work no play makes Johnny a dull boy” so goes a saying. We at Oracle do not follow this to the last word. We have a blend of people who are both geeks and fun lovers. To encourage the lighter side, Oracle in India has a group of volunteers who have formed a club called Fun@work. The Fun@work club is a serious business here. We have a corporate committee that has elected representatives from each facility. They all come together in planning and organising various non-work...
