Meet Hellen, our Director of Operations. Discover why working for Seuss+ provides Hellen with adventure, fun, and the chance to learn continuously.
Hi Hellen, Can You Tell Us A Little Bit About Yourself?
I am the Director of Operations at Seuss+, I have a background in clinical research and Human Movement Sciences, and I got caught up in the Life Science industry. I like people management and actually seeing the client you are working for and collaborating with.
How Long Have You Been An Employee With Seuss+?
I really started working for Seuss+ in May 2019, so almost for 3 years now. However, I have known and helped Kieran and Sabine before that.
Why Do You Like Working With Seuss+?
Definitely the adventure! Before starting at Seuss+, I already knew Kieran and Sabine, they are close friends of mine, and I knew that there would be no political games within this company. Seuss+ is built upon mutual trust and creating a positive working environment.
While working at Seuss+, I keep developing myself, and I continue to learn. Of course, this is not always fun because it might result in making a mistake. However, this creates you as a person, which is something Seuss+ emphasizes in their company environment. It is trial and error, but that is what makes work an adventure. You have to get out of your comfort zone and maybe work on unfamiliar projects.
How Did You Learn About Seuss+?
As I mentioned, I already knew Kieran and Sabine before working with them. I had the opportunity to follow everything from day one, to see the company grow and contribute when necessary and where my help would be beneficial. When Sabine and offered me a position at Seuss+, the choice was also a fast decision. It would be a perfect fit as the Director of Operations.
What Is Something You Find Unique About Seuss+?
Their drive to help a client.
The first instinct of Seuss+, when asked for help, is to answer YES. Yes, we can help you, and yes, we are willing to collaborate on this project and see how we can improve your business. They might not know exactly how to achieve the goal, but the answer will always be yes.
This creates a positive and friendly environment to work in. They are straightforward, fast, and pro-active. Everyone is excited to work and to help each other to achieve the goals desired. There is work pressure and time-pressure; however, this is not negative. There is a positive, encouraging tension to work hard.
The drive also leads to a change in mindset. Panic does not turn into passivity but into creativity and innovation.
Is There A Quote Or Moment You Would Like To Share About Your Time With Seuss+?
It is not really a quote, but more a word: ‘YES.’
Yes, we want to help you! Yes, we will find a solution! And yes, we will get to the result desired one way or another. I remember one time, a client asked for a specific training program for a function. We had no idea how to do this, but since we are so willing to help each other, this panic turned into creativity. In the end, the client was pleased; the employees keep learning, the adventure is still here!
