Manager Administrative Service

I’ve had a chance to work on versatile tasks over the 13 years I’ve been working at Yaskawa Environmental Energy / The Switch. The responsibilities now include HR matters, finance work and property management as well as other administrative tasks. I’m also the advisor for both occupational safety and health at the Lappeenranta office and the advisor for gender and equality for the entire Yaskawa Environmental Energy division. On top of that, I’m a part of the management team of the Lappeenranta office.

My typical day at the office is usually quite scheduled. For example, the salaries need to be paid on a specific day and the monthly reporting needs to be done to deadline for internal and external stakeholders. I also attend quite a few meetings during the week. The topics can be anything related to my versatile responsibilities, like planning an event for the personnel, recruitment, property maintenance, strategy, you name it!

On my free time I like to relax by watching movies and shows. In the summertime I enjoy weekend getaways in my camper home. I love to travel, and I mainly spend my holidays exploring the world. I’m also passionate about interior design, and I read a lot about it in magazines. I also workout whenever I can.
