What makes your work and working time model special and what benefits do you see?
I have a regional role with leadership responsibility; this is providing a unique platform in case needing to come to a full time position. It also has provided me a unique opportunity to reestablish different ways of doing business in a more effective and efficient way. This is not a very frequent opportunity in my country and this makes Henkel quite unique in the market
