Working at The Switch

Maggie Xu

HR Manager, Beijing

One word to describe how I ended up working with human resources management is fate. I have always been interested in HR and languages and worked as a teacher for a while after graduating from university. I love working with people, helping them, and making them happy – in that way teaching and HR are very similar! Most of my free time I spend playing with my two young boys. And I love to watch movies on the weekends. Traveling is a big passion of mine, and I’m looking forward to my children growing up and showing them the world.

I ended up at Yaskawa Environmental Energy after a friend introduced me to the company. I’ve worked here since 2010, and truly enjoy the people and the work culture here. My job covers several different activities, for example looking for the right people to join Yaskawa Environmental Energy, arranging team-building activities, and taking care of employee welfare. I love how the environment at Yaskawa Environmental Energy is seriously relaxed.
