What do you love about your job?
One of my favorite pastimes is people watching – but more in the context of what people are doing and how they do it. The professional term is trends research, but it really boils down to people watching! Identifying and understanding social trends leads to finding new opportunities for OMT-Veyhl.
I love the opportunities that I have been given in my job, to take those social learnings and observations and apply it to new product design. The ability to be creative, to design and engineer something new, and to learn is what I love about my job and what keeps me motivated every day.
What does it mean to you to be able to help a customer meet their needs?
I feel that our purpose is to provide our customers with innovative solutions that help solve a problem or satisfies a need that they have. If we help a customer meet their goals, then there’s a good chance they will come back to us again and again. That’s our reward.
How does working at OMT-Veyhl make you feel empowered?
We have a very cohesive group and it feels like we are making a difference. For me, empowerment is the spirit of innovation and creativity that we share in our group.
