1. Technicians - Breaking the myths

Does a service technician equal repairman? Is he (they are all men, aren’t they?) covered in grease most of the day? In this podcast, we talk about misconceptions surrounding service technicians, their value for customers and the cool places they visit, with our very own service technician, Samuele Chiosi. Our specialist, Sam Sharkey, talks about teamwork, safety and whether technician roles are only for men.

2. Millennial mindset – Reality vs. expectations

Kevin Honaman is in his mid-twenties. In this episode, he tells us what young people want from work and if they are really as ambitious, impatient and self-confident as some people claim. We discuss what Kevin expected before he joined Konecranes and how well those expectations were met. Our specialist, Marzena Prudzicz, gives tips when considering a new job; advice that is useful for everyone – not just millennials! ​

6. Climate change, safety and the individual

We all care about the environment but what has environmental performance at work got to do with the average employee? Anniina Virta-Toikka talks about how the environment, safety and business results link to each other and how they impact your work. Mikko Välimaa joins the chat and recognizes that the personal impact of Safety is perhaps more immediate and tangible than in other sustainability work… Perhaps communication of all sustainability topics should include a strong emotional element?
