Meet Beata she is our Office Manager supporting Amway Kraków employees for over 12 years. Beata is the most recognizable person in our office and among employees. Everyone knows that reaching out to her will be a great solution to all office-related matters.
We asked Beata a few questions. Read the interview to get to know her better!
What are the 3 words you would use to describe Amway GBS Kraków?
How would you explain your day job to a child?
People are joking that the Office Manager is the “Chief Happiness Officer”, and I really like it. In the simplest way: I am always doing my best to make our employees happy 😉
What do you like the most about your job?
That I have an “impact”, and I have a feeling that I am doing important and visible things.
What drew you to Amway GBS Kraków originally? And how has our company changed since?
Wow, it was many, many years ago (12 😉). At that time Amway was only starting its operations in Kraków, with 30/40 people on board. Currently, Amway hires almost 600 employees who are supporting different regions across the globe: Australia, NZ, both Americas- significant change. I studied International Relations and American studies. I always knew that I would like to work for an American company because I like their culture of work. At that time in 2010, Amway was completely unknown to Kraków’s Market and it made me even more curious about it 😊 That was my best decision to start working at Amway.
What advice would you give to Amway candidates / recent new hires?
Advice… I don’t know, I just would like to say: that Amway is a great company, focused on people! Good luck! 😊
What is the best book you have ever read?
Difficult one: I am not sure if it was the best one, but for sure most important for me personally: “We need to talk about Kevin”. A book about the tough relationship between a mother and her teenage son. L. Ramsay did a movie based on that book with great actors: Tilda Swinton, Ezra Miller.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
Easy one- Angelina Jolie, because we have b-day the same day -4.06 😉
You’re the happiest when…?
I am happiest when I am doing meaningful things. I am happy during and after Muay Thai training, when my kids are smiling, when I am traveling, riding a bike, reading good books, chatting/working with my fantastic team 😊 Sometimes small but crucial things.
