Been there for over 13 years Kolibri
''After traveling at sea during my time in the Navy, I felt this was not my calling. When I finally stopped here, I decided to work for a year and then go back to study. As a teenager I had a part-time job Kolibri and I sent my former colleague a message asking if I could come back to work for a year. After nice conversations, I could immediately start working as person responsible for the cane department. Not knowing that this meant that I have now been working for more than thirteen years Kolibri!''
The point of contact for it Kolibri personeel
"During my start at Kolibri, I worked in production where I was responsible for the stick department and internal logistics. During this period I immediately noticed that I enjoy managing staff and being a point of contact. Due to the growth of the nursery, there was an increasing need for personnel planning and I was given the opportunity to develop myself as a team leader. I eventually became a staff planner! I ensure that the staffing levels in the production departments are optimally utilized.
In addition, I am responsible for ensuring that communication with staff and task managers runs smoothly and I supervise staff to ensure that they perform an appropriate function. Kolibri Company is a growing company that is always looking for staff, so I work a lot with our HR employees. "
A Kolibri day for Kevin
''Before it Kolibri staff arrives, I check whether the day's planning is correct. This can be a big puzzle because each employee has different working days. If an additional order is added one day or someone is ill, this planning must be adjusted. Flexibility in this position is therefore very important. In addition, I am involved on a daily basis with cooperation in the production departments and I am a link between the task manager of those departments.
Because I really enjoy being in contact with the staff, I am the confidential counselor within our company. This makes me a point of contact when an employee needs help with a private or work situation. Inside Kolibri Company We think it is very important that everyone feels good or knows that they can discuss questions with a colleague."
His favorite Kolibri Orchids are…
''Two Kolibri Orchids that stand out for me are the Morelia and El Salvador!''
Spring is the biggest challenge
''One of the most striking periods for me is spring. This is a busy period due to holidays such as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. During these days, proper planning is important. The departments must be well coordinated. It is a challenge for me to make a plan during this period, where there is a good chance that I will have to adjust it daily."
Developments and career opportunities
''Even after thirteen years, I continue to develop and grow in my position. I have recently become responsible for leading the production departments. This is the best part of my job! Being in contact with colleagues and helping and directing them. This allows me to get the best out of employees and empower them.”
