1. How long have you worked for SafetyCall International?
I started in January of 2021 and just celebrated my 1 year anniversary. This company has been such a perfect fit that I feel like I’ve been here forever, in the best possible way!
2.What does your job entail (brief overview of your job) ?
My two main jobs are;
One: Recruiting, where I help find, screen, and hire awesome new team members.
Two: Promoting our company culture and values through the Wellness Committee, Intranet, Value Activities, etc.
3.What is your favorite aspect of your job?
I love that I get to help find new talented team members for our company. Nothing brings me more joy than watching someone I helped to hire find happiness and success on our team.
I also LOVE promoting team unity and connection, which is especially important with so many of us working remotely across the country. Planning activities that keep us connected is so much fun!
4.What is the best career lesson that you have learned?
As a recruiter, I have learned that it is incredibly important to find new team members that align with the company culture and values. Lots of people have the right skills and background for the job, but not all of them will have the right attitude or value the same things as SCI/PPH. Finding the right new team members, even if it takes longer to fill open positions, is much more beneficial in the long run.
5.Which 3 of SafetyCall’s 7 core values and principles do you resonate the most with and why? (Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Teamwork, Professionalism and loyalty)
- Loyalty: This has always been important to me. I have only had three jobs in my entire 23-year career. I want to commit myself to a company and not only grow personally, but help the company grow as well. I can’t do that if I jump from one job to the next. I value this same thing in other team members (which SCI/PPH has lots of!).
- Compassion: Having worked in either veterinary or human medicine my entire career, I’ve learned that a little compassion goes a long way. You only see the surface of what someone is dealing with. Below the surface lies numerous things outside of our control that influence how a person speaks or behaves. By showing compassion, even when someone may not be “on their best behavior”, we are able to connect and help people in their time of need. Being kind, listening, and supporting others is what helps make the world a better place, and might be the thing that turns that person’s day around.
- Teamwork: There is no way that SCI/PPH would be what it is without our incredible team working together. Working as a team, and lifting each other up daily, helps both the individual and the entire company grow. A team that supports each other, depends on each other, and is there for each other, will be successful!
