A year of changePublished: 2017-12-08 09:41
Hi, so first official new post on the brand-new blog forum. If you have a look around you can see there are some nice shiny additions to the pages. The bloggers (us) each have our own section of the blog, this will make it easier if you want to quickly follow a blogger. We also have direct links to social media channels and a comments area where you can freely comment and engage with individual bloggers. Part of the fun of writing these blogs is getting to interact with the readers and who knows, your comment may be the next topic for a post.
A lot has been going on since the blogs took a hiatus earlier in the year. The general feeling is that the dust has settled after the company split. I must say at least for my part, for a company the size of SCA (as it was known at the time) to be splitting and going two different directions, the transition went smoothly. This has also been massively helped by everybody getting behind the new direction and company feel, coupled with a vast amount of cake and balloons.
On top of all the associated challenges that went with the split in everybody’s job role I have also had changes on a more personal front. I’ve moved on from the dual positions of Marketing for the Tork Brand and for Employee Attractiveness and I am now purely a Digital Specialist. This is great for me, because if you have read any of my blogs before I have been super lucky about falling into positions that I have a huge interest in. Being a Digital Specialist gives me a really nice blend of being creative day to day, thinking holistically, being part of/and coordinating projects but also learning a lot.
I do mean a lot. Here is an artist’s rendition of my learning curve in weeks 1-4.
I am still relatively new to the role and I am feeling pretty upbeat. I enjoy the things I get to do and I don’t really have a day-today at the minute as with the company rebrand often it comes down to which fire needs putting out first. All in all its been a really good year for me professionally and personally.
