Apart from helping convey management’s message, guidelines and strategy throughout the organization, Frida also informs people about various ongoing projects, about employees, products and almost everything that involves Perstorp. She works a lot with the intranet, which is the primary information channel, but also helps organize major meetings with senior executives to get the right material and message to convey throughout the organization and to individual groups.
“Being as young as I want to believe that I am, I have a lot of responsibility and it feels great to be trusted with such an important role. It’s also a global role, meaning I communicate with people from all over the world. I learn a great deal just by talking to such a variety of people.”
During studies Frida differed from many of her course mates when it was time to choose work placement. While her course mates applied for various PR or advertising agencies, Frida was determined to work with communications at a large company. She asked around and soon decided on Perstorp. Her work placement eventually led to a job offer and Frida tells us that she’s more than pleased to be working for Perstorp.
“It’s such an exciting and dynamic company that gives you the opportunity of showing what you’re made of and you get responsibility really early on. It really is a forward-looking company that focuses a great deal on innovation. The chemicals industry is meanwhile a very exciting industry in itself!”
