In this issue of Noark Newsletter, we will introduce you Mrs. Kristýna Šenfeldová, an important pillar of our office.
What is your position and responsibility in NOARK?
My job title is Office / HR Specialist. As you can conclude, my work consists of two important parts. Firstly, I´m responsible for organizing all of the administrative activities that facilitate the smooth running of our office and supporting all my colleagues not just in Czech Republic and Slovakia, but across Europe and the world. This part of my job starts with equipment and materials and ends by negotiations with suppliers or consular issues. The other important part of my job heads to HR area. I also provide support to HR Manager on tasks specific to HR area, including activities such as recruitment & selection, employee recognition, compensation, health & safety policies, training & development and other related HR programs. So what is my responsibility in Noark? Simply said… keeping my colleagues happy.
When have you joined the company?
I have joined NOARK right after my graduation, that was 2 years ago. A journey full of big experience has started since then…
What is your daily work?
I broached this topic in my first answer so let me describe this just briefly… Each day brings new task and requests from my colleagues all over the world, so there is no space for a routine. The schedule changes day by day, sometimes even hour by hour. There is a lot of communication with my co-workers and partners as well as dealing with internal issues and finding the right solutions, making travel arrangements and taking care of consular issues or planning and organizing meetings and events. This is my favourite part of the day as I enjoy working with various kinds of people and I´m given a space to encourage creative thinking and to come up with some new ideas and proposals. But „each coin has two sides“ so naturally there are also less attractive necessities that I'm responsible for. If anyone of you enjoys handling paperwork or maintaining register of all important documents and inventories of supplies, you are welcome to come by.
What is your main target?
Because I truly believe that the group´s well being and success conspires to create more balanced, functional and successful company, my main target is to help to create a workplace where people feel appreciated. Having satisfied employees means that everyone benefits.
What is the most important progress?
I really appreciate a lots of improvements that has been done by HR department since the beginning of the year. We´ve come up with some new ideas and proposals in order to keep safe and pleasant working environment and to increase a satisfaction of our employees so I hope we will continue moving forward step by step. The other positive thing is that we are growing and expanding.
What you found challenging on your job?
I have already mentioned that my job is very diverse, but I have to bring that once more, because the diversity happens to be the fact, that challenges me the most. I don´t make a good friend with routine and stagnation, I love the feeling that comes by when things are moving forward and growing, living their own life, so every unknown situation, each new request or task is an opportunity to learn new things, to improve myself and become better. To provide consistent quality work and support requires reliability, constructive communication, ability to eliminate stressful thoughts and stay optimistic, to keep yourself up to date and being flexible in finding your feet in whatever is thrown in your way. To become that kind of colleague is definitely the challenge.
