Developing talent is an essential part of building a strong team. It’s not only a matter of technical knowledge, but also of soft skills. Indeed, even in the most technical field, personal attitudes and traits can make a real difference. Problem solving, teamwork, flexibility and learning agility are some of the qualities we can find in our employees.
Let’s meet Alessandro, who works inside our laboratory.
“My name is Alessandro and I’m 28 years old. I graduated in engineering two years ago and, after a few internships in various companies, I started working here.
My job consists in organizing the production and testing the materials. I love what I do because of the constant challenges I face every day, which force me to think and find a solution to every problem. This is demanding, but also really rewarding, because I have the responsibility that everything runs smoothly and there are no stops in the production flow. Testing the materials is also interesting because I get to see and understand the technical properties of different yarns. I can say my tasks vary regularly, I don’t do the same tasks over and over, but I’m constantly moving and doing different things. That taught me to multitask as well.
In the future, I see myself as an experienced engineer and I wish to improve my skills more and more. To do so, I need to work hard and gain more knowledge in the textile field – as I can do at Tay.”
