- Why did you want to work here?
Sutherland Global Services is a stable company. We’ve been around since 1986. A company that’s been around for close to three decades now was appealing to me as a young professional looking for a company to grow with long term. I was also attracted to Sutherland’s policy of being actively engaged in the local Rochester community. We are involved in many community service projects and fundraising efforts that have benefited many local organizations and causes including: The Boys & Girls Club of Rochester, United Way of Greater Rochester and the YMCA of Greater Rochester. Our social responsibility efforts is a prime example of how devoted we are to service.
- What have you enjoyed the most so far at Sutherland Global?
The people…My coworkers are smart, fun and very hardworking individuals from all walks of life. They go above and beyond. I have a supportive supervisor, Matt Weinrich who empowers me through weekly 1:1 coaching and by providing positive feedback. He’s someone who I can vent to; we work together to find solutions to challenges facing sourcing and recruitment. His willingness to trust me and afford me the freedom to do my job; this has been a key motivator to succeed.
- What is your favorite part of training?
Our training facilitators are very knowledgeable. They know what they’re talking about. I like that we have continuous coaching, development and role playing. We have a wealth of development opportunities. Sutherland is constantly offering opportunities for employees to strengthen skills and areas of weakness.
- If you could stock a vending machine with anything, what would you stock it with and why?
I would stock a vending machine with coffee. I love coffee! I usually have 2-3 cups a day. By the way Tim Hortons has the best coffee in my opinion.
- What were you doing previously before you came to Sutherland?
Before joining Sutherland I worked as a business operations specialist for Frontier Communications. I was assigned to work on the Frontier Communications $2 billion acquisition of AT&T Connecticut’s wireline, broadband and video operations. Before that I worked as a recruiter helping to recruit talent for companies like JP Morgan Chase, Disney, Xerox, and for the State of New York including the Governor’s Office.
- What’s your favorite hobby or non-work related activity to do in your spare time?
I run cross-country. I started running in high school. During the spring, summer and fall I run 4 miles every other day. Running is meditation for me. It helps me sleep at night. And it keeps me disciplined. Running also enables me to set goals and push myself toward those goals. This has been helpful in my professional life and on the job.
- What’s something you’re hoping to take away from your work experience here at Sutherland?
Another reason why I took a position at Sutherland was the fact that I wanted to make a positive difference while working. I didn’t want just “another job or a paycheck.” Within sourcing and in my role I am adding value. I am helping people find and get back to work. Finding and securing employment can be life transforming on many levels. Helping others get ahead or back on track is my take-away.
