Impressions from the first rotation and start of an adventure


2 Comments

Hello Again,

It’s hard to believe that it have  been almost 6 months since last time I wrote here, time really flies. I’ve experienced a lot during this time. I spent two months in Germany in order to learn our supply chain planning processes hands on, two months in the factory supply chain organization in Gothenburg to work with the SAP implementation and finally two months in our global supply chain organization. A lot of new learnings and I get to meet a lot of great people.

After the months spent within our supply chain organization it was time for gathering weeks in the headquarter with a lot of trainings and presentations, we did also spend a couple of days with our new trainees.

 

All SKF trainees gathered in Gothenburg

I will spend the coming six months in Pune, India. Working within our purchasing organization, I am sure that this will be a great adventure and a learn full experience for me.

The SKF area in Pune is really beautiful with lot of trees.

Until next time!
BR, Sasan.

After the Introduction Month


No Comments

Hello Again,

Now the introduction month is over and all of us are placed in our “home units”. The introduction month was a great experience, we met SKF group’s management team, visited two factories (whereof one foundry, which was super cool), had a lot of trainings about different subjects and got to participate in a business simulation at the IMP. The IMP is a program aimed at managers who are recognized as having a bright future with SKF. The program exposes the participants to the global picture of SKF and gives them the opportunity to create their own international network within SKF. The business simulation was the part of the introduction month that I appreciated the most. In the simulation teams act as companies competing for the same customers in a fierce marketplace. Each participant assumes a management role in Marketing and Sales, Development and Services, Planning and Delivery, Finance and Control. The goal? Earn short-term profit while creating long-term value.

I left Gothenburg for Schweinfurt the day after the introduction month was over. I will be here for 8 weeks in order to get a understanding for factory supply chain and all the processes involved. It will be fun and really interesting.

The next blog post will be written by Laura-Marie.

Have a nice week everybody!

Sasan

Introduction to the SKF Global Trainee Program


No Comments

Hello dear readers,

This will be the first of many posts from the SKF Global Trainee team for Traineebloggen. We’re super excited to share our experiences during the upcoming 18 months with you, who knows maybe one of you will be a future colleague of ours.  We’ve been enrolled in the trainee program for almost two weeks now and I think that I’m talking for all of us when summarizing the previous days as fantastic, instructive, hectic but foremost FUN.

Let me present myself who got the honor to introduce the trainee program and the rest of the team. My name is Sasan Pezeshki, from Sweden, with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, and a M.Sc. In Supply Chain Management both from Chalmers University of Technology. I will be a trainee within two functions in parallel, Group Purchasing and Logistics & Demand Chain. Besides me, we have another four engineers in the team; Ezgi from Turkey, Valentin from France, Marco from Italy and Laura-Marie from Germany, the last member of the team is the only non-engineer, Henrik from Sweden. They will all give you a more thorough introduction of themselves when sharing their experiences, but I can give you an additional detail about them; they’re all amazing.

The trainee program starts with a one month introduction in the SKF head office, during these weeks we get a thorough introduction of the company, the different business units, the challenges the company faces and most importantly, all the amazing people that makes SKF, the company it is. The introduction month is followed by three different rotations lasting 5 months, where we get the chance to work in real projects, and at least one of the rotations are taking place abroad. I will be in Germany, India and then Belgium, fantastic… Between the rotations there are gatherings where all of us meet to share our experiences and get further training.

I will at the end of the introduction month give you a more detailed explanation about the experience.

Don’t hesitate to comment if you have any questions.

Until next time!

BR, Sasan
