Embarking on the Argerr Adventure
Zenajda's story with Argerr began as a first-year master's student, joining the team as part of her university internship. Drawn in by a welcoming atmosphere and a team eager to share knowledge, she was motivated to progress and expand her skills within Argerr.
Argerr prides itself on a culture dedicated to enhancing individual skills and fostering a dynamic team spirit. Zenajda reflects on her daily experiences, highlighting the collaborative nature of the team that can be seen both in tiny details but also through significant projects. Her internship, marked by a warm welcome and mentorship from experienced colleagues, set the tone for her journey at Argerr.
Thriving Work Environment
Beyond the technical aspects of her role, Zenajda cherishes the daily activities and team gatherings, emphasizing the value of brainstorming sessions at the beginning of a project. The company's commitment to a healthy work-life balance is evident in its understanding of employees' private obligations and its relaxed atmosphere, enabling them to thrive both personally and professionally.
"I think Argerr is one of the rare companies that has a lot of understanding for the private lives and issues of its employees. So far, I have never noticed that one of these two aspects, private and professional, suffers. The very relaxed atmosphere allows us to fulfill our personal responsibilities, and as employees, we strive not to let professional duties suffer because of it. I believe that mutual understanding and support are crucial for obtaining this close-to-perfect balance." says Zenajda.
Zenajda was eager to share her views on the teamwork within the company:
“The Argerr team is composed of young individuals who are willing and eager for their own further growth and development. The desire for knowledge and new experiences makes us more efficient. I believe we have common goals that we can achieve as a team in the future.
I believe Argerr nurtures and fosters teamwork in various ways. In addition to daily socializing during breaks and in the work process, where a relaxed and friendly atmosphere prevails, Argerr often organizes social events outside of work, such as various team-building activities in nature to relax and step away from daily responsibilities. It's interesting to note that we also build a special relationship among employees and clients through business trips, mostly to Scandinavian countries. We believe that such trips are an additional way to build a close relationship within our team and strengthen our connection with clients.”
Professional Growth and Project Highlights
Zenajda's growth at Argerr is a testament to the company's investment in its employees. Starting with minimal experience, she delves into the design and construction of grandstands as a notable project, showcasing her evolution from a novice to an independent contributor.
Acknowledging the dedication of its employees is a cornerstone of Argerr's philosophy.
“Recognizing employee dedication is crucial, almost indispensable, for the continuous growth and development of both individuals and the company itself. I believe that the progression of employees directly correlates with the advancement of the company, and vice versa. In my view, Argerr is a company that acknowledges this, inspiring and valuing the commitment of all employees through various methods. It is hard to highlight only a few moments when I received support from Argerr. I believe that throughout my entire career, Argerr has been the main catalyst for all my achievements, starting from assistance and support in crafting my master's thesis to the present. I hope it continues this way, and we will keep building even better results in the future.”
One standout example of Argerr's commitment to employee growth is Zenajda's experience with her final master's thesis on the "Design of belt conveyor." With the guidance and assistance of her colleagues, she navigated through challenges and received unwavering support. This exemplifies Argerr's ethos of providing tangible support for each employee's career journey.
Highlighting the symbiotic relationship between individual and company growth, Zenajda recognizes the unique influence employees have on Argerr's trajectory. Common goals and ambitions intertwine, ensuring a shared journey of progress and success.
