● What makes Panasonic a great place to work?
Panasonic is a big international corporation with a tradition of more than 100 years. All of us have the possibility to bring new ideas and experiences into the organization. My job in HR is very diverse and wide-ranging, from creating concepts, leading projects, coordinating, training and coaching. I especially enjoy working together with different personalities and learning something new every day.
● How do you describe Panasonic culture?
Here at the European Sales Headquarters of Panasonic Industry in Munich the culture is a mixture of tradition and innovation. Many different nationalities and experiences come together, take over responsibility and work as a team in order to reach common goals. Our company values, our “7 Panasonic Principles”, are the basis of our success. “People before Products” is one of them and it shows the importance of each one of us.
● What is your favorite part about your job?
I am happy to be one of our Basic Business Philosophy Trainers. I have the possibility to get to know all of our new employees and inspire them to follow our 7 Panasonic Principles, which means a positive, solution orientated and respectful communication. I enjoy improving and developing our organization and being part of a great team.
● What's one interesting fact about Panasonic that people might not know?
Our founder, Konosuke Matsushita, is famous like a pop star in Japan. One of his basis for behavior was “Sunao (untrapped or open) Mind”, which means to face everybody tolerantly without being selfish, influenced or prejudiced but rather to be open to the teachings of others and being able to find joy in any circumstances. His basis was from the 1930’s but it still reflects the spirit of Panasonic today.
