My name is Pavel Stanek and I am taking part in the Greiner Professional Program as an International Business Trainee. This program allows graduates to get to know Greiner as comprehensively as possible – in different countries, cultures and business areas. Over 18 months, you can get to know four different departments and areas. For me, my second station is now coming to an end. In the last four months, I have supported the sustainability department at Greiner AG.
Sustainability is an important topic for me. It plays a big role in my private life and in my professional environment, where I deal with supply chain management and innovation. In my opinion, it is important to expand your view beyond your own area of responsibility. This is the only way to recognize and understand new developments. And this is what I experienced in the sustainability team – I worked on exciting tasks and topics, got to know inspiring mindsets and worked in a heterogeneous and agile team. Friendliness and openness were a matter of course.
During my time with the sustainability team, I was able to work on various topics. I contributed to the conceptualization of a water policy, helped with data collection and target review for the Sustainability Report 2020, leaded the project management looking for a new csr-software and supported the communications team.
For me, it was particularly interesting to get to know strategic sustainability issues at Greiner, to influence them and also to learn about myself.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the sustainability team at Greiner AG for the lovely and exciting time!
Your Pavel Stanek
