Boot up the computer, read e-mails, check the editing status of a document on SharePoint – all of these are obvious tasks in everyday working life for my colleagues at Lekkerland.
My role at Lekkerland information systems GmbH
My team and I ensure that everything around the workplace at Lekkerland works smoothly. And that’s not all: we are thinking ahead and, together with the specialist departments, we are developing the digital workplace of the future. At Lekkerland, the focus is on the customer – as it is of course with me: together with my six co-workers, I support colleagues with appropriate tools and equipment that work well, so that they can focus fully on our customers.
Voice control, portable computer systems (“wearables”), virtual reality – the possibilities of digital working are almost unlimited today. It is our job to check what will really advance our company and the relevant department, as well as making inter-departmental or cross-border collaboration simpler. Integrating the employees plays a very important role in this process – as a company, we cannot stand still.
My career path
I have worked for Lekkerland since September 2015. I came to Frechen as an external project manager with a service provider. I liked what I saw so much that I applied for a vacant position in spring 2016 – and since then I have been part of the Lekkerland information systems team (Link to Portrait Lis – Company). I really wanted to do something new – and the position was an exciting challenge. A few months later, I worked in the team responsible for moving the system to the Microsoft Cloud, and eventually I took on the management of the project. Since early 2017 I have managed the Workplace Management division. I have not regretted moving to Lekkerland.
I am also part of a team when I am not working: as a father and as a guitarist in a punk rock band that has been going for more than 20 years. I love this genre of music and, for many years, I organise concerts for bands from all over the world in my free time. Seeing a lot of the world is also another passion of mine. A real highlight was the time in spent in Tanzania: I spent one month there in February 2016 working on a social project in a village near Arusha. As part of the project, we facilitated access for residents of the surrounding area to the internet, printers, photocopiers and computer courses.
What I value about Lekkerland information systems
I most value the appreciation that is shown to me – and the innovative, open way of thinking. We understand and support one another – that is real team spirit!
