Six months and counting!

Published: 2020-02-13 04:22

Six months. Half a year. And what a half year it has been!

I am one of those people who dive into lots of things at once. I want to be everywhere and try everything! This was of course also the case when I started working at Essity in August 2019 and as the possibilities are many in this company it was easy to start exploring.

But before we get into that subject allow me to introduce myself:

My name is Ellinor and I am your newest Swedish Life at Essity blogger! Born and raised in the Gothenburg area I now find myself at age 36 very grown up with a beloved family, many friends, a comfortable house, beautiful garden and a safe but a little untrustworthy Volkswagen Passat from 2006 (which is not so beloved actually, I wish I could live without a car completely :-)).

In my blog posts you will find topics like Digital Workplace, Learning & Development, Personal Development and of course what it is like to work at Essity.

I am working in a team called Internal Digital Experience where I belong to the smaller team IT Training & Education. A lot of focus is spent on the Digital Workplace where we train and support users and management on their change journey towards operational efficiency and transparency using modern digital tools. To be more specific, our team is right now focusing a lot on Office 365.


What is Digital Workplace?

Flexible working with the Digital Workplace

If you are searching for a Digital Workplace definition it is easy to find many of those. As a matter of fact, searching for ”What is digital workplace” in Google gives you 349 million hits! So I have simply chosen a description that I personally like:

The digital workplace is the concept that businesses should use digital transformation to align technology, employees and business processes to improve operational efficiency and meet organizational goals. Meant to be the virtual compliment to the physical office space, the digital workplace is a broad term that includes any device, software or platform that staff members use to execute their jobs.

In my world of work Digital Workplace is not only about the tools, it is also about how you use them and why you use them! It is about learning and change management (which also happens to be two of my favourite subjects). You’ll hear a lot more about Digital Workplace in coming blog posts from me!


A cross-functional role

With an education in Business Administration, work experience from the logistics industry, system implementations, system support and process enhancement and finally a personal interest in Learning & Development, presentation skills, communication and change, I am right where I want to be right now. With one foot in IT and another in L&D me and my fantastic colleagues strive to combine these two worlds making IT training fun and relevant whilst at the same time understanding the business needs.

But what about all the possibilities at Essity that I mentioned in the beginning? Follow me here on the Life at Essity blog to read more about what I do and what we do at Essity! See you soon!

Great first post Ellinor! Looking forward to follow your blog. Seems like I might have a chance to get to know some more details about you this way, although we see each other on an almost daily basis. Hope the Passat doesn’t let you down too soon :)
