What’s your ideal workday?
To Julia Fürst, Head of Legal at UniCredit’s Schoellerbank, the ultimate workday means striking a balance between home life and work duties. “Working from home during the pandemic has not been easy, but I try to get outdoors for a walk or do some yoga before lunch”, she says. “I sometimes work longer hours, but then also take an equal amount of time out of the day to maintain a physical and mental equilibrium.”
Favourite lunch meal?
While many of us opt for lighter meals, such as soups or salads, Wouter Devriendt, UniCredit’s Head of Finance and Controls, undoubtedly has the best approach to power lunch. “Usually, I go for a takeaway, the one with the shortest queue! I also treat myself to pizza with a Coca-Cola once a week.” Maybe it’s time we take his advice and start treating ourselves to #PizzaWednesdays.
What about the funniest moment at work?
We’ve all had our share of hilarious days at work. Some make us laugh, while others make us cringe. Mojca Kovač, Head of Retail Banking in Slovenia, experienced a “laugh out loud” moment when she arrived early in the morning to catch her weekly flight from Ljubljana to Milan. She arrived at the airport only to find out that she accidentally booked the flight for that evening. “Luckily, our office can be anywhere!” she says with a laugh.
