MEET FRANK FROM THE WAREHOUSE
Frank Warming is the team leader in our warehouse. His role is to manage day-to-day orders and delegate tasks to the warehouse team. He has been working at Global Timber since August 2016.
From wood “virgin” to warehouse lead
Before Global Timber, I had no background or knowledge within the wood industry. I had to learn all the different species of wood and at the same time get familiar with my new role leading a team. From the beginning, I felt comfortable with the responsibility and with a strong dialogue and trust from the management team I was off to a good start.
A varied workday
The best part of my job is that no two days are alike. I love the feeling of clocking in at work and have to plan the day. My job requires loads of logistic, coordination and optimization which is highly motivating for a planner like me. The most important thing is yet the social cohesion and team spirit – not only in the warehouse but through the entire company. We have an incredible working environment with numerous social events and a great sense of fellowship where each and every one is a valuable and vital part of the big company machinery.
Commitment and companionship
At the warehouse, I do my best to distribute the tasks in a reasonable way, so no one gets the “heavy” or “easy” job two times in a row. Our warehouse is all about equality and familiarity. All employees are included in the daily tasks and decisions in order to create a feeling of commitment and companionship – and to make sure that our actions are coordinated and efficient which is crucial in an international company, supplying the global market.
