A very corporate environment that strives on work/personal balance
Executive Assistant, Corporate Resources (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 November 2014
Reported to the Vice President in the Toronto head office and supported a team that included Human Resources, Marketing, and Sustainability.
Through the 8 years at the company, I've learned a lot by watching people and closely working with colleagues in understanding and adapting to the culture of the company. I had the opportunity to understand what goes on with the various departments and individual employees.
Patience goes a long way in a company where various departments has different processes for approvals, reports etc. before anything gets brought forward. I believe that it was critical to be thorough before proceeding with any major decisions. Process improvements are always ongoing, therefore it's best to bring forward any discrepancies to ensure smooth processing.
