“If I look anywhere in SKF across the world, there is a common thread running through us - our core values and zeal to be the best in our industry.”
Abhijit - Sales
Abhijit is the Head of Sales for Renewable Energy Segment in SKF India. Abhijit joined as a trainee engineer in the year 1996 and over the years has gained experience in industrial engineering, manufacturing engineering and sales. We asked him what is the most satisfying part of his job?
“One of the most satisfying experiences of my current job is to work for a segment contributing for green energy and driving sustainability for us and our planet. In the last 15 years in SKF, I have always found teams best in talent and values from all functions across all countries which has helped me to evolve into the person I am today and deliver my work effectively."
How does teamwork influence your working day?
"Teamwork is really everything that we do and deliver. Bonding and trust in each other is very important as we work across many cross functional teams apart from sales and our results are nothing but collective efforts and tasks done by many people working across all functions. It’s a different joy and motivation when we all know that we are together and stretching ourselves for achieving greater heights as a team."
Please describe SKF's culture from your own personal experience.
"SKF is a global organization in every sense of the word, with rich diverse culture with a heritage of innovation. There are people in SKF from many countries, many different languages, cultures, background working towards common SKF goals. Even though, they are from various parts of the world, I have seen the common SKF culture which we follow about our goals, vision, values and processes. The way we work together in a multicultural environment, the way we do business is an absolute dynamic process. Many new people keep joining SKF and make this culture rich and diversified but our core essence remains undisturbed. At SKF we believe in giving opportunities which is one of the most important aspects of a work life. I have had many bosses and different teams in last 15 years and I have learnt a lot from them. I have always experienced the openness and empowerment which we practice in SKF. All these things make SKF a special organization to work for and I feel proud to be a part of this team."
