North America Procurement Operations Team Leader
When Julián heard about Kimberly-Clark from a friend, he heard how aligned the company's values were to his. In his time at Kimberly-Clark, he has experienced putting those values into play, and how he can personally make an impact every day.
What attracts you to Kimberly-Clark?
Its culture and environment. I took the decision to join the Kimberly-Clark family after a referral from a friend of mine who told me how aligned our values were – and he wasn’t wrong.
Describe working at Kimberly-Clark Kraków in three words.
Diverse: As an Argentinian working in Kraków I am proof of the diversity mindset Kimberly-Clark has. When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to find our team
is composed of multiple nationalities which gives us a range of perspectives, strengths and opportunities to grow.
Challenging: Our team’s stakeholders are based in North America, where our HQ is based. While this does come with its challenges, we are always
seeking new ways to create value.
Joy: We have fun, we connect, and we want to work in a great environment.
What is your favourite part of the job?
Being impactful. I’ve been in three different positions over the last four years
at Kimberly-Clark and I’ve always seen how my job makes a genuine impact in one
way or the other. That´s not something that you can find everywhere.
What is it like to work remotely as a team during the pandemic?
We’ve spent more time working remotely than at the office since March
2020 but we are making it work. We try to talk with each other more often
and have developed a culture of two-way feedback in order to be more
present and feel connected.
What is the most important lesson you’ve learned since working at Kimberly-Clark?
That we all contribute to the company’s success in some way. It doesn’t matter if you are a specialist, a team leader or senior manager, everyone has the same opportunities and everyone’s ideas are listened to.
What advice would you give to someone thinking about joining Kimberly-Clark Kraków?
If you want to develop yourself, make an impact and be part of a big company, which cares for people, both consumers and employees, but with a start-up mentality, Kimberly-Clark Kraków is a great place!
