My desire to live in Sweden dates to January 2013, when I first visited the country. It was cold, windy, there was snow and ice everywhere, but I remember how much I enjoyed the calm characteristics of both Göteborg and the Swedish people. Everything and everyone seemed so relaxed, and felt in harmony. Coming from one of the busiest cities and country of Central-Europe, Sweden offers something that I could hardly experience back home: calmness and quietness.
Don't get me wrong: I love my country; I love my people and I'm proud of my Hungarian nationality and background. However, moving abroad, and experiencing a different culture, a different country, a new way of living has been on my radar for a very long time, and I really appreciate the flexibility and the willingness of Aleido in helping me making it happen in April 2023.
I work for one of our largest customers in a multisite setup and I've always liked how we operate in multiple places like Budapest, Stockholm, and China. Collaborating with teammates from different backgrounds helps us find unique solutions to our customers' challenges. I think there are a lot more similarities than differences when it comes to work culture across different sites within Aleido. I feel that both Aleido Hungary and Aleido Sweden incorporated our company values into their daily operations very well.
When I was Team Manager in Budapest, I had the opportunity to learn both from my fellow Hungarian leaders and from leaders in Sweden. Now I work as a solution manager for the same project where I started, when I joined Aleido in 2017, but in Sweden. The assignment started 7 years ago and I’m extremely proud of it: the history, our journey together, and the people working in it. We are almost 90 people in Stockholm, Budapest, and China, which gives us the potential to continuously align our operations to our own business needs and to our customers' expectations.
In every role I’ve undertaken in the assignment, my main objective has been to contribute to making the right decisions, and to support people in growing into professional roles that would fulfill them, and to create value for our customer as well.
