Back in the 1990s, few people in Slovakia knew what the HR abbreviation meant. That did not stop some from taking positions in HR.

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.
