Year-end Sprint aka Negotiation Marathon:
End of the year Andreas has to fix not only prices and volumes in contracts but also develop strategies for sourcing of bio based propylene and propene.
On the left picture: Julia, Senior Sustainability Manager at Evonik and Andreas, Director Base Petrochemical Sourcing Manager are discussing Business Line requirements for bio based products.
On the right, you see Andreas right before a real life sprint: After hard negotiations and for his work-life-balance Andreas likes to run. This helps him to generate new ideas and review his negotiation day.
Onboarding during Covid is a challenge, but at Evonik we have skilled and creative colleagues who quickly adapted to this situation and did an amazing job in bringing the onboarding experience to the virtual space! Together with the team, I provided the new hires a first look at Creavis - the business incubator of Evonik. Exchanging via videoconference may be challenging - here it takes #humanchemistry, and #ittakesyou.
Glad to join ACE II 2020 training organized by HR. We are preparing our fantastic presentation. Good luck guys in our show on Friday!
