Welcome. We are Arla Global Shared Services and we work the scandinavian way.
You most likely associate us with brands like Arla Apetina, Lurpak or Castello. We are part of the global Arla Foods group employing 20,000 people worldwide and delivering 25 trillion glasses of milk a year.
That being said…
At our office in Gdańsk Wrzeszcz we do not produce butter or cheese, nor do we conduct milk quality assessment. In Poland, we are 400 employees who support our colleagues worldwide by providing them with world-class accounting, finance, IT, master data, procurement and HR processes. We are IT & Shared Services Centre, and thanks to our work:
Arla Foods accounting books are clean and perfectly organized.
Production plants have all the necessary tools and raw materials to work with.
Farmers around the world receive payments for the delivery of delicious milk.
Every single one of us plays an important role and together we build on our 10bn Euros turnover thereby establishing our position as one of the largest dairy company in the world.
„I like Arla because it confirmed me in the belief that „Do what you love and you will never have to work”, is possible” Maja Kuzimska, A2R Acting Team Leader
“Arla is a lot more than just people and the office. Here you take care of your day in balance of larger or smaller challenges. And I feel that I am always going in the right direction…love that!” Przemysław Myśliński, IT Service Desk Quality Lead
Lead, Sense, and Create – these are the three traits that make up the Arla character; and they are apparent in everything we say and do as individuals:
LEAD is about taking the lead, being in the driver’s seat in all our actions. It is about being visionary and passionate, striving for leadership, and identifying the highest potential in our people, businesses and relationships.
SENSE is about being aware of people – colleagues, customers, consumers, and the world around us. It is about being curious, having an open mind, and a global mind-set. It is about seeing opportunities in people and relationships and acting responsibly.
CREATE is about developing and being creative in acquiring expertise, products, and market relationships. It is about inspiring and motivating people to higher levels and developing innovative businesses and people capable of delivering excellent products and results.
We believe that Lead – Sense – Create – on a personal level, on a team level, and on a company level – are fundamental for our success. We nurture the Arla character on all these levels and balance the three traits in order to ensure the right mindset and behaviour. Everyone in Arla plays an important role in putting Our Character into play.
