One of them was Tatiana Orglerová, a native from the western-Slovak town of Prievidza. She started her career in HR in the Slovak branch of Yazaki, one of the first Japanese investments in the country. Even though she had no previous experience, she got a leading position in its HR department.

Since then, she has worked for various multinational companies and has even received several awards. Last year, she was awarded as HRLeader 2019.

“HR is a matter of heart for me,” Orglerová, who now serves as HR Director for Central and Eastern Europe & Middle East for the Knauf Insulation, told The Slovak Spectator.
