What do I really do for work?

Published: 2022-05-18 06:27

“What do you do for work” my kids ask. Good question actually, so I go on and talk about all the things I do at Essity and I can see their eyes slowly glaze over. Twenty minutes of monologue later (if they are still present) they come to the conclusion that as Essity manufactures toilet-paper my daily task is probably to manually roll the paper on the rolls. No wonder I never get invited to school on those parent “talk about your job” days!

I admit that on the rare occasion it may actually feel like a full day of manual toilet-paper-rolling after a long, hard day where you tend to do the same things a thousand times. But, that is actually not what I do most of the time.

What I actually do

My job is far, far more exciting than that! How about when a network link suddenly goes down somewhere in the depths of the network and the majority of our European sites can’t reach the main datacenter any longer? Or how about when the “delete” and the “submit” button are just too close to eachother? Or the satisfaction after a successful implementation of a new solution that works just perfectly after you have gone through your 50 bullet-point “step-by-step implementation plan”? THAT is what I do for work!

What I hope to do soon again

Right now I’m involved in the integration projects of two recent acquisitions. One is based in Oceania and the other in Latin America. Such a joy to speak to my new, very remote colleagues on almost  a daily basis! It always strikes me how happy and willing everyone is to collaborate, although time-zones and limited network access sometimes come in the way.

Now I’m only waiting for any of my far-away colleagues to ask my help to maybe plug in some switches locally. Perhaps some very advanced local firewall configuration is needed over in Melbourne? I’m not saying I’m expecting it, but my bags are already packed and waiting in the hallway…. 😉

Curious to see me in action? Watch this film I made for Essence of Essity.
