"I think what keeps me here is the genuine passion not to give up. There are lots of challenges, lots of change. But nobody takes a backward step, no matter what is thrown at them. People here are good at supporting each other, solving problems and finding solutions. There’s a lot of optimism and positivity. The attitude is always ‘let’s see what we can do, let’s work out what we should be doing".
What attracted you to join Quadient?
I joined Quadient as a Key Account Manager. I only had a week to prepare for the interview. I threw myself into researching the company,
learning about their technology, solutions, their amazing history. I got to understand how they helped big and small organisations to communicate differently, beyond just the usual letters in envelopes. I saw how they were helping to digitise
I got the job and then catastrophe struck - within a couple of months I broke my leg playing football. I learned a lot about Quadient then. I was really worried but my manager just told me to take it easy and get better, take as long as it takes. That was such a weight off my mind. I could just concentrate on getting well and in a month and half I was back. The company was
really, really great as well as my managers and my
colleagues. They welcomed me back and made me feel a part of it straight away.
What do you like most about working for Quadient?
What’s always amazed me is how people take the
time to talk to others. I have had direct conversations with the CEO, the Chief of Staff, regional managers, directors in North America and other individuals in senior, national and global roles within the organisation. It’s great to hear what they say. It is also motivating to know that they
are interested in your work, too. Most of all, it’s just good to hear
how human they are. When you’re starting out in a big company, the people at the highest levels can seem a long, long way away. Not here.
They talk to you; they
share your passion and they are real people that you can have an honest conversation with.
