Darko: Grundfos has turned a kid into a man

 

About Darko

Darko, who works in our flexible department in our production site in Serbia, is a real example of how one's determination and initiatives go a long way.

"January 25, 2012. That was the day I started working at Grundfos, yet I remember that day as if it was today," says Darko. "I had been listed in the National Employment Service (NSZ) for a year, but I only had one interview, until Grundfos offered me one. I signed the contract on my birthday, and I had the greatest gift that I had never dreamed of. From then on, my life has been thriving," continues Darko, with a big smile on his face.

What he does

"I started with taping stickers to boxes. I noticed a colleague who was doing a different task than I was, so I approached him and asked if he could teach me. My supervisor noticed that and I was promoted to handle that task. The same thing happened when I learned to operate machinery. I currently oversee a team of four; I mentor new colleagues, lead some training and take part in numerous projects concerning work quality manufacture," continues Darko, smiling.
