Developing yourself, in both professional and personal areas, is becoming more and more important in terms of today’s employees’ future goals and aspirations. How can proper management, internal culture, and opportunities inside the company support our personal career paths? If you are interested in exploring the opportunities available at Girteka for personal and professional growth, take a look at Virginija’s experience. Her story offers valuable insights into what the company has to offer and how it can help you achieve your goals.
Virginija Tatarcuk, Pallet Transportation Team Leader at Girteka, is a very active person, with many hobbies and different interests. She is an avid reader who spends a lot of time in both the Girteka Park library and public libraries or book shops. She also loves playing the piano and spending a lot of time on the dance floor, practicing Reggaeton, Dancehall, Salsa and Bachata.
Virginija entered a professional career path at Girteka during her studies, encouraged by a colleague: “When I was still a student, I was talking to a fellow student, and she said: “So what are you doing? Come to Girteka, it is really cool, you will love it. Plus, you always want to grow,” she says, “and here at Girteka, we have endless opportunities for development.” So now it is my fifth year here and I am still growing and still improving,” says Virginija.
Virginija works in customer service at the European Department. She strives to provide excellent service to customers, as she always pays close attention to the level of service that she receives herself when in a shop or a café. Virginija says that customer service is very important to her as she believes it can leave a lasting impression and determine whether a customer returns. Virginija is passionate about being a part of the logistics industry, which provided a chance for her to pursue a career in customer service.
One of the main arguments that motivate Virginija to engage even more in her daily work is the opportunities inside Girteka. Despite managing a narrow area of activities, Virginija has room to not only conduct her own projects but also to adjust her area of responsibilities. She has taken over the initiative of collaboration between colleagues and students. Virginija finds it very important for her to keep the company relevant for future potential employees and understand future generations in order to adapt to their needs and expectations, as Girteka is a constantly developing company.
Today, Girteka offers vast possibilities for young people. Although logistics could be seen as a dull sector compared to other business areas and start-ups, where young people usually tend to look for potential career paths, when you enter Girteka, you get the impression of an advanced technology company, that works in a very innovative area, using the latest digital solutions like Artificial Intelligence (AI), robotic process automation, or big data management. One of the main benefits of being part of Girteka is the freedom and encouragement for constant improvement and knowledge gathering through international projects and a multi-cultural environment, with possibilities to not only grow in your specific work area but also extend your skills and experience in other areas.
“What makes Girteka an attractive employer is the fact that here, there is no such thing as a “ceiling” – you can always try yourself out in different positions with plenty of offers and opportunities to climb the career ladder internally,” says Virginija. “For example, if you are a manager in the customer service department, it does not mean that the next day you cannot forward freight, plan a truck route, organize an event, or visit college students and give a presentation on what you do. It is just a question of imagination and what you want to do. I think Girteka offers immense possibilities,” she concludes.
In a world where personal and professional growth is becoming increasingly important, Girteka offers many opportunities for individuals to develop themselves. The company’s management and culture are supportive, and employees can explore various internal programs to enhance their skills and advance their careers. Virginija’s experience shows that Girteka encourages its employees to take ownership and manage projects, try out different roles while working with people from diverse backgrounds. Moreover, the company’s focus on innovation and technology creates an exciting work environment where individuals can continuously learn and grow supported by digital innovations. Girteka values all of its employees and strives to create a workplace where everyone can thrive and achieve their goals.
