Andrea Roberto Bossi - Workforce Planning Specialist

It’s uncommon for an engineer to move away from technical issues, but for me it’s exciting to change roles and develop new HR skills and responsibilities!

My name is Andrea. I’m a Chemical Engineer and graduated from the Politecnico di Milano in 2009. I joined Dow in July 2010 within Manufacturing & Engineering as an improvement engineer at the Parona plant, holding a variety of engineering roles in different functions (Operations, EH&S, Maintenance and Supply Chain). Today I work within HR as a Workforce Planning Specialist; I’m the focal point for University Relations and HR Site Service Leader for Pisticci e Fombio sites.

Working as a chemical engineer for Dow gave me an amazing opportunity to grow personally and professionally, to meet people with many different backgrounds and to see how different functions interact in a well-structured company.

It may sound strange and uncommon for an engineer to move away from technical issues, but I am proud and excited to be given this opportunity to change roles and develop new skills and responsibilities - that’s also part of what makes Dow different. I am sure that I can bring a different mindset to my HR role and I am also sure that this HR experience will help me broaden my horizons and my competencies.
