Round-trip office four hours a day is certainly tiring.
That is what the brand manager Citra Lotion at Unilever feels when commuting from his home in North Jakarta to his office in Serpong, Tangerang.

This move coincided with the new role of ITB Industrial Engineering graduates as global managers for the Citra Lotion brand at Unilever.
In this position, Citra had to coordinate with teams from India, Thailand and Singapore that she had never even met in person.
