Our lab manager, who has accumulated significant expertise in coatings development, in a career spanning more than 45 years, will retire at the end of 2017. The transfer of his know-how is essential.

Know-how transfer means, alongside with applied knowledge, also the transfer of passion to be a part of the company, to build, together with all the subsidiaries from all over the world, the Group's success and to carry forward the Sika story. I looked at this like I have a family. In the family you share, give, offer advice & understanding. in Ethiopia, Sika has a multicultural team that shares the passion for Sika’s ideals.

We do everything with passion, we consult among us, we make decisions togheter, we are united and we feel like we are family. I believe that I managed to transfer to my team not only this passion, but also Sika’s values, the desire for involvement in large projects and the appetite for permanent self-improvement. Beyond that, I transferred to the team, along with my colleagues from other countries, valuable knowledge about sales strategy, production process from A to Z, internal practices and, very important, the power to give to the customers what they need, at the highest standards.

We accomplish our goal by a combination formal training on the technical aspects of each job with on-the-job performance.

Sika Spirit is always present. When I started at Sika it was something that I learned from the older employees. Now that I have 9 years in the company it’s something that I’m able to pass on the new generation in the company. This is only possible because the Sika behavior and conditions to the employees are good (In my case that I am experienced in some companies, it is the best company to work that I met). We are focused in the customers but we have always in mind ethics and principles that must guide our action.

Sika is like a large Family, it is not always easy getting the message to everyone, in most cases you need to find more than one way to communicate.  You need to depend on a network of formal and informal channels, including the GM, Marketing, HR and Administration. When it’s as important as our “know-how and values” you want to ensure the entire Family gets the message.

When Everbuild was acquired in 2014 the major project for the local Everbuild team was integrating into the Irish operation of Sika.  Adopting the Sika Business model was easy in theory but it could not have been implemented without the support and dedication of both the Everbuild and Sika teams.   The Everbuild operation has benefited immensely from adopting the Sika strategy and we’re all delighted to have fully embraced the Sika Spirit.  We are very proud to be part of the Sika Family.
