September Spotlight: Teza Elca
Title: Corporate Trainer
Location: Manila, Philippines
Been with Collaborative for: 1 year, 2 months
Why did you choose Collaborative?
While looking for opportunities in the job market, I saw Collaborative consistently listed as one of the top places to work. The employee testimonials and reviews were highly appreciative of the company. And what attracted me the most were Collaborative’s core values and the organization’s enthusiasm for encouraging employee growth through training and vast resources. That is how I knew that Collaborative would be the right fit for me, as I firmly believe that empowered employees produce better work and most likely stay and grow with the company.
What does your day-to-day look like in your role?
As a Corporate Trainer, I am passionate about helping employees do their jobs better. Sounds fun and exciting, right? It is indeed! I support and welcome the APAC (Asia-Pacific) new hires to the organization, making sure they get the warm welcome they deserve. I also work with my team and the Delivery team to design an effective training program for all employees. No two days are the same, but they are always fun and exciting!
What do you love about your job?
I love working with a team that pushes me to take on new and challenging opportunities and provides me with amazing new things to learn. I am happy to be part of a global, dynamic, and professional Learning & Development (L&D) team.
What does it take to be successful in your role?
I believe that to be successful in any role it is essential to be intellectually curious. You must have that desire to learn new things and dig deeper than the surface. In L&D, we challenge the traditional ways of thinking. We always search for ways to improve an existing process and to re-imagine solutions to both quintessential and unique problems. Most importantly, we view others as a resource and learn new things from all members of the team.
How does Collaborative help you grow as a person and in your career?
Collaborative pushes me to do my best work and supports me along the way. I am given the necessary training and resources to do my job well. They recognize my hard work and celebrate the wins. We are also given an opportunity to give back to the community through some of our corporate programs and employee resource groups’ activities.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
If I could have a superpower, I would want to read minds. I would like to know other people’s exact thoughts, potentially avoiding misunderstanding.
What’s your favorite TV show at the moment?
Better Call Saul— a great show on Netflix that I would totally recommend.
