For what reasons did you decide to work for Putsch®? What was your introduction to Putsch®?
Before I applied at Putsch®, I researched information about the company. Putsch's long standing tradition was, for me, a sign of continuity and security. My entry coincided with the implementattion of Quality Assurance. The department name is self-descriptive, so I was also aware of our responsibility: The customer expects to be satisfied with flawless products.

After I started as an employee in Incoming Inspection within Quality Assurance, I took production technician training as a sideline. In parallel, I was given more responsibility on the department of the company and finally becoming the head of department. Along with the Machine Acceptance Testing, I had reponsibility for the inspection of individual components and purchased parts from ousitde suppliers.
In addition, incoming inspection, serial production inspection, documentation of completed machines and the support of the QM.

What motivates you in your everyday working life?
Personal motivation is not difficult. My job is very diverse and interesting.
And how do you motivate your employees?
I think the most important thing is that every employee sees himself or herself as part of a team. Team meetings in this company are just as important as personal discussions with individuals. I have trust and an open attitude. In the event of a fault I bring the employees together. Praise and recognition should not be foreign concepts. Criticism, no matter how it is presented, should not be used in a negative manner.
Do you have any advice for someone who would like to work in your position one day?
To stay faithful to the demands of his work as he would tor himself. It is important when employed by a company to be able to identify with the obligations.
