I am a pretzel fan; with a good pretzel, the day begins in a valuable way.
At Chiesi, an important guiding principle is "use free space". That's how I see it for me too. One luxury is that I can organize my time freely. Because I cannot command ideas or creativity at the push of a button.
I'm an aficionado of vintage cars, which I tune myself. My wife and I enjoy beautiful sunny days in and around Würzburg on our Vespas.
Hans-Jürgen Oberkönig has been Regional Manager Primary Care for the Nuremberg region for Chiesi since 2015. Here he explains why Chiesi is a good fit for him as a company and an attractive employer.
"Chiesi's culture is valuable because it values people."
"At Chiesi we are convinced that freedom is the key to success. In order to achieve this, employees can and should become involved in the company and utilize their freedom. It's all about individual development and achieving goals together. Own approaches and ways are encouraged and also required. The basis for this is our long leash culture, in which Chiesi invests trust in all employees. New colleagues are often surprised at the freedom they are allowed to enjoy. Part of my job is to help them discover the possibilities.
Our culture is supported by a sincere interest in the individual. As a family-run company, Chiesi lives this special kind of leadership and authentic values. This enables everyone to work in a relaxed and motivated manner. This also includes a well-balanced relationship between work and private life. This balance also sustains my curiosity for changes in professional life and for new challenges. It is essential to remain adaptable and to look at what the future holds. This progressive foresight to approach new situations and people is important.
Both my joy of working together at Chiesi and my private life help me in this. I enjoy working on old cars and traveling the world in a camping caravan with my wife. This is how I find peace and quiet and recharge my batteries to get started again with the typical Chiesi heartfelt power. Therefore, I can say: Chiesi is the company of my life.
