A people person who enjoys work and play alike

Ondřej Vodička

No matter how much technology advances, machines cannot do it all by themselves. After all, there have to be people to build, maintain and operate them. Without people, there would be no machines, no offices and no work. That is why Ondřej Vodička chose his job in HR. He is a people person. So what better department to work for than Human Resources.

As an HR Generalist, Ondřej is in charge of pre-selecting candidates for the various positions at his plant in Stráž and Jablonec nad Nisou. “I’m very empathic and always try to make sure that the atmosphere during interviews is pleasant for everyone involved.” Ondřej is in his early twenties, and he has already worked in the HR department of another large international company before joining BENTELER. That’s where he learned the basics of his job, which he can now put to good use for his current employer.

In order to build a solid foundation for his specialty, Ondřej studies Economics with a focus on Business and Management Services at the Technical University of Liberec, his home town. He can apply a lot of his new knowledge in industrial law when holding trainings for BENTELER employees. “Aside from holding my own trainings, I also organize other training sessions for the employees of the two plants I am responsible for.”

Ondřej had already been familiar with BENTELER before he started working here. “There is a plant in my home town. It’s a well-known company in Liberec region.” So it was only a matter of time until a position would open up that was suitable for him.

“I have the opportunity to work 30 hours a week here. That’s very important to me because I still have to finish up my degree at the university.” His job at BENTELER gives Ondřej the flexibility that he needs: He can expand his work experience, earn a living and also attend classes. “I also have very good chances for development here. My manager is very supportive, and I can attend any training that we both think is useful for me. I greatly appreciate this support.”

Born to live – not to prepare for it
Ondřej is a team player. He is always happy to help others – and he is very persistent. So what better sport for him to play than football. When he is with his team, Ondřej can apply all of his best qualities at once. He also enjoys that in a team, everybody is equally important – even in a team where you play with a football legend, like Ondřej does: His team mate is former Czech national striker Jiří Štajner. So he continues to learn from the best, also in his free time.

In winter, when it is too cold to play football outside, he plays futsal indoors. And year-round, he goes to the stadium to watch his favorite team play. It is his way to live up to his personal motto: “You’re born to live, not to prepare for life.” Ondřej makes sure he lives every day to the fullest: in his sports team, at university and at work at BENTELER.
