How long have you worked at Altri?
Since July 2022.
What does your average day at the company involve?
In an average day at Altri I try to understand the People and Talent Management needs in the different companies within the group and in the different departments and operational areas. I seek to identify the key requirements of each job and set out a strategy which will allow recruitment to be developed consistently across the group and which will simultaneously meet the organisation’s challenges. This is how I ensure that new employees are recruited and integrated into the group, with the appropriate profiles, and I can simultaneously gather additional information to support the other duties of the People and Talent Department, such as for example, training, development plans and career management, among other things. Additionally, I establish contact with different educational institutions in order to promote partnership relations and publicise the Altri group, which translates into curricular and professional internships, and into academic dissertations, thereby promoting and strengthening our ability to attract talent to Altri.
What do you find fulfilling about your job?
Being able to recruit the right person for a certain job. It means the previous work I did was right and in line with the company’s actual needs, and that, in tandem with this, we were able to attract new People with potential, know-how and experience. The next step is to make sure we keep that person, and this responsibility is shared by all of us, and to enable that person to develop both personally and professionally.
I should point out that being able to interact with different people, from different operational areas and hierarchical levels, and to strengthen my knowledge of Altri as a whole is also very motivating.
Has there been any time which stood out for you at Altri? Please tell us about it.
I’ve not yet had a particular stand-out moment. The whole period has been remarkable in terms of the group’s relationships with People, be they employees or the neighbouring communities. Everyone is hugely receptive to welcoming new colleagues, to accompanying them in loco and patiently explaining who they are and what they do. It’s the same in terms of the company’s very real concern both with the well-being of its workers and with the possibility of achieving a good work-life balance. I’m impressed with Altri’s social responsibility and how it works with local communities. It’s discreet but impactful. I recommend it!
