“Creating a better world takes collaboration across the borders, between cultures, private business, society, and government. It takes all of us, which is why I also try to pursue this passion in my work at Bühler. Before I started at Bühler as an International Management Trainee in the CEO Office in August 2017, I had studied business administration and information technology and already gathered work experience in a variety of areas such as IT, construction, oil and gas industries, the food sector, and even event management.
During my first year as a trainee at Bühler, I had the opportunity to closely follow projects from strategy to implementation, both internally and externally, and to learn directly from our CEO, Stefan Scheiber, and his team.
In my second year at Bühler, I faced the biggest challenge of my career up to that point: The organization of Bühler Networking Days 2019. Over a period two weeks, we ran a series of events. We started with several employee events, and culminated with a three-day customer event attended by 800 guests. The project was both the most challenging I had managed as well as the best up until then. From my point of view, the event was a complete success.
The project required a lot of collaboration among all departments, various regional sites, and corporate functions. During the Networking Days 2019, we also launched our heightened sustainability goals: “50% less energy, waste, and water in our customers’ value chains by 2025”. These are goals I can identify with that inspire and motivate me professionally.”
