Kolibri stories | Dominika, our stick department manager

At Kolibri Company, where passion for orchids and teamwork come together, it is our employees who make it possible. To give you a look behind the scenes, we introduce you to Dominika in this blog. She talks about her introduction to Kolibri and her growth within the company to become a task-responsible stick department.

On to a 12,5 anniversary
''About 10 years ago my journey began Kolibri Company. I started working here through an employment agency and worked in various production departments. I'm from Poland and I didn't speak the Dutch language yet. During my work I decided to learn Dutch and went to school for this. Because I learned the Dutch language, I was able to carry out more work within the company. This led to taking on new roles and I have now been updating for about 10 years Kolibri!''

Task responsible sticks
''Our Kolibri Orchids pass through various production departments, including the stick department. This is a department where unstemmed orchids enter, but leave the department with sticks attached to the branches. After they have been staked, the orchids are sorted by a camera by number of branches and length of the branches. There are many automatic processes in this department, but we also work with a large team to stock all the orchids. I am responsible for ensuring that this department runs as smoothly as possible. This position involves, among other things, checking the machines, troubleshooting any malfunctions and determining which types of orchids need to be planted. I have regular conversations with my team to ensure that everyone is working with pleasure and happiness.

Because we work with different cultures within our company, I translate our internal newsletter for our Polish employees. This way, every employee is involved in events in the company and is well informed."

 

Kolibri day
''Just like all production departments, the stick department starts around 7:00. I start a little earlier to start up the machines and make sure everything is working properly. I then organize who sits where during the sticking and sorting to ensure that the day runs as efficiently as possible. I regularly attend meetings with my manager and the sales team to ensure we are on track.”

Favourite Kolibri Orchids
''All Kolibri Orchids are beautiful! I already have a lot myself Kolibri Orchids are at home."

The best thing about your job is…
''The best thing about my job is the opportunity to continuously learn and grow. My work is very varied and I enjoy communicating with my colleagues. I love the conversations I have with the staff and the challenges that the work brings."
