"In Nordea, we try to comply with the work-life balance rule”
I think that the greatest value of Nordea is its organisational culture, which is based on the Nordic culture. It enables us to develop our skills and knowledge. Another great asset is a real pleasure of working together with pleasant people. In Nordea we try to comply with the work-life balance rule. We encourage our employees to spend their leisure time actively and we can serve as an example of this.
When I decided to make my first attempt at diving, I discovered that this sport enables you to get to know yourself and your limits. When you dive, you may well find yourself in an extreme situation with the opportunity to prove yourself and develop your teamwork skills as you never dive alone but always with another person or a group. This moulds your character and you may see where your actual limits are.

"In Nordea, work-life balance is preserved”
What I value the most in Nordea is the work-life balance orientation – in my opinion, the most important of all non-pay benefits - and this system in Nordea works very well. We have time to catch a breath and time to have a rest. I write books after work. It is a kind of a self-driven system - I write something in my book and think how to use it at work. If at work I see that it would be good to do something extra, I describe it in my book. At Nordea, the work-life balance is ensured.
"You can get on your bike in the morning and ride to work”
The sports card is the most attractive benefit offered to me by my employer. I am a Physical Education University graduate so sport is a completely natural thing to me. The card is a great addition not only for me, but also for my husband, because we both use it.
I live in Gdynia Orłowo, not far away from my workplace, so I am able to commute on my bike. It is great that I can get on my bike in the morning, go to the local marketplace and buy some strawberries and then go to work. It is lots of fun to me. We have also registered our company for the "Bike to Work” competition, organised by the Roads and Green Areas Administration in Gdynia.
"What I need the most is the possibility to realise my own ideas”
I have a hobby which often requires longer holidays or a sudden departure. What I need the most and where I am supported to a great extent is the opportunity to realise my own ideas. I organise and participate in mountain expeditions.
In February 2015 I went together with a friend from our team to Tubkal in the Atlas Mountains. It often takes me one year to prepare for an expedition and I need a lot of time to make it come true - even two or three weeks. I know that such long absence from work in many companies would be difficult to accept, but in Nordea everything is different. I often hear: "it is good that you are doing something for yourself, how much time do you need for that? Go and remember to return with some photographs”.
