TUI WORKWIDE Mallorca – Beate Nuxoll

As a global travel group, TUI wants to enable its employees to work abroad from time to time. The pandemic in particular has shown that flexible working is possible. For this reason, TUI WORKWIDE was launched in 2021. Colleagues can work abroad for up to 30 days a year to have a healthy work-life balance. This balance is important for a fulfilling career and overall personal well-being.

Beate Nuxoll is content marketing manager at TUI and has taken advantage of TUI WORKWIDE's offer to get to know Spanish life and culture better.

Here is her story

“I have always had a great love for Mallorca and, especially after my work assignment to Palma as part of Global 360 – a TUI initiative designed to give employees an insight into other markets – this love has grown.

When I heard about the TUI WORKWIDE opportunity, I decided to move my home office to Palma and use the COVID remote working time wisely. As it was important for me to discover Spanish life, I rented an apartment in the old town of Palma from November to February (30 days in 2021 and 30 days in 2022) as well as a place to work in a co-working office where I met many different people from all over the world. The co-working office organised after-work events and a Christmas party where I met people from other offices in Palma and even TUI colleagues.

It is important for me to mention that I covered all costs by myself. I was not paid for the flight, the accommodation or the co-working office. It was a personal investment for my individual development.

Privately, I took part in many language exchange events where expats came together and where I met many exciting people. In some cases, I also made real friends here.

The cooperation with my colleagues in Hanover was great during this time. I had a good internet connection at all times and was in lively exchange with them.

In summary, I can say that the time in Palma was incredibly valuable for me, because in addition to my daily work, I made inspiring contacts, got to know other cultures, improved my language skills and benefitted from a better quality of life.

It's great that TUI made all this possible through TUI WORKWIDE!”
