This week we meet the award winner for our core value Team Work, Zlatko Skvaric. Zlatko is a Senior Project & Service Engineer working in Croatia.
With 10-years at Zenitel already under his belt, Zlatko won the Team Work Value Award due to his unique knowledge of CCTV and TV distribution in Zenitel. Next to that, he is always prepared to help others and share his competence. He does his utmost to assist his fellow Zenitellers across departments. His positive attitude and energy rubs off on his colleagues.
How did you end up working for Zenitel?
Well, to cut a long story short, I ended up with my friend in a local shipyard just to see what he was doing there (some propulsion calibration). I was never in the new building environmen before, so I was a bit curious. There I met some employees of Zenitel and we had a nice chat. A couple of months later, I found the job ad in a local newspaper, I applied and well, here I am!
What’s a typical day like for you?
Generally, a typical day is too short for me. I could use 5 to 6 hours extra to sort out all of my tasks. Half of the time I’m out travelling for services, commissioning and some tasks in Norway. The other half of the time I’m in the office working on marine projects, production documentation and sales support of a technical manner. I have a lot of correspondence with both suppliers and customers, remote connections or project support and so on. So the right answer is: there is no typical day for me.
What do you find most interesting about your job?
The most interesting thing is the spontaneity regarding work tasks. I never know where I will end up. I like traveling for my job, meeting new people, visiting new places - that’s my favorite part. Some challenges on a daily basis are interesting off course.
How does it feel to receive this value award?
It’s always nice to have a form of recognition in the company.
Which value do you identify yourself with the most and why?
I think my knowledge has increased a lot in the period working with Zenitel. I am trying to do my best to help our colleagues on a daily basis and to sort out all challenges, so I would say Teamwork.
