Learning and Development Business Partner, HSO
1. What do you like best about your job?
I frequently say that I have the best job within HSO. Running the HSO Academy allows me to work with both colleagues and customers to help them develop, grow and gain insight into new things: it could be soft skills, application skills, new ways of thinking – actually anything. Making sure people get what they need to take the next step is what I like best. And being a central hub in an organization requires a lot of effort to stay up-to-date and aligned with every unit. It is a fantastic thing to do!
2. What are the biggest professional challenges you face, and how does ClickDimensions help you address those challenges?
ClickDimensions helps me to easily send fully tailormade mailings, newsflashes and management information to relevant people inside and outside of HSO. It helps in professionalizing HSO Academy and supports where we want to go.
3. What was your background before landing in your current role?
Before landing in my current role I was a functional consultant at HSO, working for HSO customers both in The Netherlands and in other countries. Since I have a background in education, I have always delivered training, so the path to my current role has been a perfectly natural one.
4. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I love to read and to play around with language, so if I would have to choose a different profession it would be editor at a book publisher, preferably a Christian one.
5. What book has had a big impact on your life, either professionally or personally?
Find Your Why by Simon Sinek; it has led to a lot of insights into both myself and the HSO organization and has allowed me to move forward in unforeseen areas.
