“We embrace ‘Can-Do,’ ’Teamwork,’ ‘Customer Engagement,’ and ’Expansion.’”

​I have been given an opportunity to work in an industry for which I had both personal and professional passion for. In 2014, I decided to join the Elkem team and utilize my skills to fulfill my career desire, and therefore, I knew I would be a great asset to the company. Elkem Silicones recognizes work, talent and the potentials of their employees. In my time with Elkem Silicones, I can say with confidence I've grown with the help of my colleagues both regionally and globally. The leadership team has a genuine interest in the success and accomplishments of their employees, both inside and outside of work. This is a great company to work for no matter where you are in your career life cycle. The company has a global footprint and diverse product lines. We embrace 'Can-Do,' 'Teamwork,' 'Customer Engagement,' and 'Expansion.'

The most interesting task I've taken part in was a market analysis of silicone products and technologies which have been introduced to the personal care market over the last 20 years.  It elucidates how silicone technologies have progressed and why certain silicone technologies are dominating the cosmetic space.  I am thankful to all my colleagues for their readiness to discuss ideas and collaborate efforts to get the work done.  It is exciting for me to learn more and share ideas to delight our customers.

Elkem Silicones has a bright future and it is my privilege to be a part of it. As a Technical Service Representative in Personal Care, I am responsible for providing technical solutions to customers. I am confident that our current and future technologies will keep us competitive and keep Elkem Silicones on the forefront of market trends. 

The "Can-Do" attitude is obvious among workers in the organization.  There are clear decision-making people in each department.  Safety is always first on our minds!  Our people are flexible and willing to make changes in order to succeed.  We have an excellent can-do mind-set and a strong regional cohesiveness with a global presence.
