Why does the value of “Passion” resonate with you?

I feel that the driving force that makes me wake up every morning and say “let’s go for it” is the passion I feel towards my job, but also towards this great company. Passion is the fuel to my motivation.

Frequently, people tell me that they perceive my enthusiasm and excitement towards my job, and I truly believe is due to how passionate I feel for what I do and the company. I feel that passion gives me a sense of belonging, but mostly, it allows me to experience work, and life in general, to the fullest.

I believe passion pushes me to want to do better and to never give up, to always move forward stronger and with determination, most importantly, to remain positive and believe that things will work out as long a I work hard for them.

How does the value of “Passion” help you in your role?

Passion is present at my job every day, though where I get to experience it more often is when I implement different employee engagement initiatives. Because I feel passionate about what I do, I have fun while doing it and I want that to be the case for everybody else. It is very rewarding to see employees having fun at the different activities I organize. I feel I am fulfilling my purpose of creating a more enjoyable workplace.
