“It’s been said that most people will spend about 90,000 hours of their lives working, so it’s only natural that one’s level of job satisfaction will have an impact on their quality of life. Knowing that the daily effort I make in my role may positively influence an employee’s experience at work fills me with a sense of purpose and is incredibly rewarding.”
