It has to be when I was appointed to the Global Controller role. By that time, I had been with the company for 5 years and was in a project team. This was not only a recognition of my work, more importantly it gave me a greater scope of responsibilities and the flexibility to explore the different areas within the business which helps with my personal development.
How do our culture and values resonate with you, and how do you think you apply them to your daily routine?
At Engelhart people are always welcoming new ideas, new approaches and challenges to established processes. This culture of “openness” can encourage entrepreneurship in individuals. With that in mind, I am not afraid of saying or doing things wrong, rather I am empowered to make every change for improvement.
