Mediq invests in sustainable employability to create the right conditions for our people to have a long, happy and rewarding career. Please meet Lise-Lotte, our experienced colleague who works in Mediq Sweden’s highly automated warehouse.
A wonderful mix
“It's never too late to learn something new', says Lise-Lotte who previously worked in the manufacturing & production industry. Since 2011 when Mediq took over the premises on Hallabäcksvägen in Kungsbacka, Lise-Lotte is one of the 70 employees working in the warehouse. She picks for the business in Sweden and is also part of the team that provides support and service for Mediq’s customers in Norway. “Our team is a wonderful mix of young and older women and men.”
Staying on top of changes
A day at work? “We start with a gathering at the planning board, a huddle, where we walk through the status and priorities. Then I check which route I am planned on. We use a voice ordering system called Astro, which was completely new to me when I started at Mediq. I log in with my voice and run my queue supported by voice instructions. My favorite truck is number 10 and my colleagues know that. So when I get to the trucks' charging station, it is usually free and waiting for me.”
Helping the customer
“I am well organized and punctual and have a caring attitude. These qualities are important at Mediq – we work for patients and our deliveries should be perfect! The best thing about my job is that I get to work independently and move around. It is physically demanding, but I love it! What makes it fun to go to work is that there is always pace and things ongoing. As a result, I am constantly evolving. Staying on top of changes is key for future growth in the healthcare industry. It is great to be part of this genuine spirit of cooperation and shared goals all revolving around helping the customer.”
