Millenial Review - from Private to Public
I've been with the board now for 8 months and it has been a big shift moving from private to public sector, in a good way.
Being one of the younger employees on my team, I've never felt more welcomed by the HR staff and various divisional teams. People here truly care about what they do because it's linked to a powerful overall organizational purpose, which is making workplaces safer across BC. As a millennial working for an organization that makes an impact everyday, my job feels very fulfilling. I feel like my opinions, thoughts, and suggestions actually matter, like I'm am important part of the team everyday, which makes me more driven by what I do, rather than by a what I make (pay and total compensation package is best I've ever received).
Is this organization perfect? No. Do things take time here? Yes. But what I see here is that they're making the right strides to change and adapt to stay current, reduce redundancies, incorporating technologies for a more streamlined process and it's all headed by strong leadership, especially by their new CEO to make diversity and inclusion a high priority.
I found the hardest part of working here is just at the start, learning their processes which can take a few months or longer like with most jobs. But at the end of the day, I get to come into work and know that what I'm doing helps makes workplaces safer and I don't need to kill myself over 50-60+ hour weeks anymore. Work-life balance isn't just a word here, it's highly encouraged, seriously! I'm happy where I am, and am excited to learn and develop with this organization!
