Another thing I love is that we’re also going beyond just supporting, to empowering our community.
During the pandemic, we partnered with Dignity Kitchen. We provided low-income families and ethnic minority groups with meals and drinks, and cooking classes so they can make nutritious yet affordable meals at home. The energy and passion of community events really motivate me and enhance my self-reflection on what truly matters in life. I hope everyone can go beyond good in their own ways to make a difference in the world.
This year’s “new normal” has required all of us to take a different view on work.
I always remind our team members to embrace change, and to be agile in adapting to new situations. To discover a refreshed perspective on their roles. Just as we listen to our consumers, we must listen to our teammates, too, and support them. This is a crucial time for leaders to cultivate a growth mindset in their teams and to empower them to be curious about the unknown. We also like to encourage breaks to re-energise the work day – the very reason why our pantry has an unlimited flow of Coca-Cola products!
I’ve worked at the Coca-Cola Company for 14 years now.
But it’s these fresh ideas that keep me looking forward to what’s ahead. But I also know that I must reserve some time by myself to have my mind not just focused on work; this is me listening to my refreshment needs! COVID-19 has suspended a lot of my family’s weekend activities and my business travels. During this time of staying in at home, I rediscovered a number of interests, like sewing. With my kids, we draw, bake cakes and make “400 times coffee” [Dalgona coffee] together. And we love it. Taking things slow can be so rejuvenating. Be it at work, in life, in responsibility, mentally, physically, by ourselves or with our loved ones – we all need a “refreshment” of some sort, from time to time!
