What’s the coolest or most interesting thing you’ve been working on?  

At the Procurement department, we have always been excited by opportunities to digitize our activities. Over these years we have significantly increased the number of digital processes at our department by launching solutions like Electronic Signature, Contract Management app, and many others. This is something important that we’ve been able to achieve and implement in our daily activities. 

What do you love most about working at LafargeHolcim EMEA Digital Center?  

One of the things that I like most about this company is a good working environment. Even during these strange times, colleagues intend to support each other and make sure that everyone on the team is safe and healthy. 

How do people at LafargeHolcim EMEA Digital Center unwind and recharge after working hard?

Recently I started to practice jogging. Over the weekend, while getting a workout in I also discovered the beauty and history of Madrid city over my delightful routes. I have taken this opportunity to run through gorgeous places in Madrid that I did not know before. Also, now I already know every corner in Retiro Park. 

YouTube or Vimeo? Youtube, of course, 

Coffee or Tea? Coffee

What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received? 

I have received a lot of advice during my professional path. However, I always tend to follow this approach when facing challenges in my daily life – When you face difficult situations, don’t fall, get the best of yourself and do your work with passion. So, when you look back you can be proud  of yourself that you did everything that was in your  hands.
