Job Culture
NGO with emphasis on advancing child rights around the world.
Bilingual Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON14 January 2015
Highly political emphasis compared to other NGO's, with a worthwhile cause that does advance the rights of children around the world. I learned to work in a diverse setting, where staff and management have many different political perspectives and backgrounds. I learned respect for these differences and acquired new approaches to staff and management, that accommodated their administrative support needs and objectives, and that also enhanced my role as a Receptionist.

I was exposed to a non-hierarchal style of management, that fostered expression of employees' opinions, perspective and input. This was very beneficial to the organization as a whole. Under the stewardship of a progressive, VP of Finance and Administration, I was able to take a lot of initiative and put into place, policies and procedures, that streamlined the processes for office administrative support.

I found that co-workers were generally, friendly and respective, however, there were some, who had an air of entitlement. I took the opportunity to 'bring them around' to my side. In other words, I went out of my way, to accommodate them, and in going out of my way for them, I softened their approach and established a very positive, friendly rapport with them. This was the hardest part of the job.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the exposure to a world-wide cause. I learned so much about children and their life situations around the world. I also enjoyed the day to day contact with visitor's to the organization. It gave me the chance to promote the organization and be an ambassador
