Jonne Härkänen, Model Factory Manager

Working at Yaskawa Environmental Energy has been motivating, as my natural skillset has been noticed and well utilized. As a social people person, I have been given opportunities to showcase my managerial skills first as Team Leader and now as the Model Factory Manager in Lappeenranta. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed my starting position as a Design Engineer, I’m excited to be recognized for my competences.

Despite the great responsibility I’ve been given at work, I do a lot besides just work – I spend time with my family and practice martial arts to keep my head in a good space. The relaxed working atmosphere at Yaskawa Environmental Energy really helps in balancing your life.

We have a very strong sense of togetherness and team spirit at Yaskawa Environmental Energy. I’ve noticed this especially when traveling to our different units across Finland and China. Everyone is greeted with open arms and warmth. It’s nice to come to work each day, especially knowing that we’re doing something good for the world environmentally and also because we have fun at work.
