HOW MY INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE INSPIRED MY CURRENT CAREER AT ALPEGA

“Coming from a small country, I found that having international experiences is very exciting, as you are exposed to new environments and new people. It opens up new possibilities and in a positive and humble way shows how little I know and how much there still is to learn in this world.”

From Latvia, to the world:

Meet Liva: Liva was born in Latvia, a small European country, and has been living in Austria for two years. What is her role at Alpega Group? She has a direct impact and responsibility towards our Employees by being an HR & Payroll Assistant in our Compensation & Benefits Team. At Alpega Group, she found that her contribution is valuable by making someone’s day or experience in the company easier and better.

But before living in Austria and enjoying the combination between city life and the nature close to her in Vienna, she explored what an international environment looked like for her. It started first with her exchange semester in Denmark, followed by studying and working in the Netherlands. All of these different cultural changes and experiences led her to volunteer in Austria.

“Having international exposure and international colleagues has become a ‘must’ for me – I find it very motivating to be with people from various cultures and backgrounds, I think this is where the most fruitful exchange of ideas can happen and where I can always learn something more.”

What does it mean to work in an international company?

With an academic background in Business and Economics, and with professional experience in Human Resources, Liva kept pursuing an international career, staying in Austria, in our Alpega Office in Vienna.

Alpega Group counts with over 50 nationalities across our locations, valuing a blended background, that benefits our teams and overall business. “I love having more than 50 nationalities represented at Alpega and every day I get to enjoy our geographically spread teams and hear so many different languages at the office. And I myself get to use at least two languages at work – English, and German.”

As English is our primary language, if you want to have this type of experience, keep an eye for our open positions – maybe you will find your opportunity by moving abroad and experiencing different cultures while growing professionally with us!

For all the early careers that value internationality in the workplace…

If you are starting out your career, being in a place that welcomes you and promotes diversity in thought and background is important for your professional growth. Why can you become #BetterTogether with us?

“Since we represent so many nationalities, I believe that anyone joining Alpega would find their ‘place’ and feel welcome – you would meet many other internationals and have the amazing opportunity to be exposed to different ideas and experiences. I strongly believe that anyone’s story and background can be a valuable addition and Alpega encourages that.”
