What did you do before coming to Quadient?
I worked mainly in the accounting department of a foreign-affiliated securities company for more than 10 years. The last company I belonged was withdrew from Japan due to the financial crisis in 2008, so I began to look for a company other than finance. Meanwhile, in March 2017, I heard that there was a challenging position it required few years of working experience of accounting tasks. I thought I could make the most of my experiences and I applied and joined Quadient Japan.
What makes Quadient a special place to work?
In a large company, even in the same work of accounting department, one may be responsible for some of the subdivided work, but in Quadient Japan with less than 20 people, the responsibilities are varieties from monthly book closing, financial reporting to tax filing, and I need to cover all the finance tasks. And more over, my responsibilities have expanded to general administrations and HR support. It always nice to challenge new things. Packcity Japan, a group company that shares offices with us, is leading the locker business and as they’re growing rapidly, now we see "PUDO" anywhere in Japan. I think Quadient is a company which is constantly evolving with the times. In addition, Quadient is a company that values employees. As such, the company offers English classes and wide varieties of E-learning courses, we can learn as much as we like.
What are some ways you feel Quadient creates an inclusive community?
I’ve strongly agreed that EPIC culture is an essential element for a better working environment, relationships with co-workers and effective business operations. I experienced myself that due to the existence of members who could not apply EPIC culture, information transmission was delayed, the work environment was deteriorated, and the business were staggered. With the strong support of the head office, this member naturally left the EPIC community, then the working environment improved, and the group has been reunited.
How have you grown in your role or personally while at Quadient?
The responsible areas have been widened not only finance dept but to general admin to HR support. I’ve had many opportunities to challenge new rolls and could learn much from them and being able to grow myself. It is stimulating that there are many excellent female managers around.
