What sparked your interest to Fosbury & Sons?
"First of all, I looked at what the job entailed. The fact that I could have an impact in my role as HR on wellbeing, team satisfaction, work conditions of all those smiling faces in Fosbury and Sons and also combine it with recruitment in different locations (Antwerp-Brussels-Amsterdam) I was curious. After seeing the place & people, I was sold. The work environment and company culture in Fosbury and Sons make the difference. You just have to see it for yourself."
What do you like about working at Fosbury & Sons?
"Everyone is working in another field, we have all operations such as HR, Marketing, Sales, Finance, Hospitality,... but we manage to cooperate as a team. Further we are all very different but yet so alike. We try to have a positive mindset and have the feeling we are in this together.
Also I like the fact that job crafting is possible at Fosbury and Sons. Meaning you can think critically about your job description and create impact within the organization. As we are a young organization, there is room for adjustments & improvements. After only 10 months in Fosbury and Sons in my role as HR Lead, I had the opportunity to take on Food & Beverages projects, which means it is possible to take on different roles in a short amount of time and to add your own touch to it."
To who do you look up to the most in life?
"My grandfather. He was such a protective, caring, hard working man for his family. After working as an airplane mechanic for the U.S. army, he started a restaurant business in Belgium. This inspired my mom to start a restaurant herself as well, which my brothers and I grew up in. The love for Food started all here!"
How would your friends or family describe you in three words?
"Social, Energetic & first name Always, last name Hungry."
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
"Enjoy a little party, have a cosy dinner with friends or family, citytripping (when this was allowed pre-covid times!). Recently I started with kickboxing. This is awesome since you really can destress and be present in the moment while working on a healthy body."
If you could be another person for a day, who would you choose?
"Kamala Harris. I admire her determination, strength & charisma."
