The exciting life of a Magnet

On one occasion we’re sitting on the visitors’ balcony of the HSM of voestalpine and we watch the steel slabs pass by. On another occasion I’m at Hotel Hoge Duin in Wijk aan Zee finding myself cheering on our managers to win a chess game against the Dutch National Chess Champion. And on to an evening in the autumn where I’m participating in a pub quiz at Tierney’s Pub in Haarlem.

This is all part of the exciting life of a Magnet. I’ve been a member for over 2 years now, and it has broadened my horizons significantly. It has given me the chance to visit customers, such as Ardagh, and see the challenges that our customers face on a daily basis. The Magnet provides a platform to get to know the company and create a network that stretches beyond your daily responsibilities across the company.

All in all, the Magnet has provided me amazing opportunities to get to know the company, develop my skills by taking an active role in the organization of events, and build up my network within the company.
