Hi I'm Gabriel, currently I work in the FinOps team as the Operations Coordinator. I am also the Customer Service Manager for WooBoard. I love that I get to experience many different fields within these roles. The culture and people at Pollenizer are also awesome, which makes it a great place to work.
During my time here I've learnt the importance of failure and that this is not necessarily a bad thing as long as you learn from it. Complimenting this, I've realised that in most cases it is best to JFDI. Not only does it provide autonomy, but it gives you a chance to either prove yourself or flearn quickly.
When I'm not getting kicked around by Bree, I'm usually off hanging out with friends, playing a game of tennis, eating dessert, reading a book, or studying commerce at Sydney Uni.
Teleworking is set to be a mainstay of the future. We can sleep in, work in our pyjamas in the comfort of our home, spend more time with our family, avoid the daily commute, etc. all thanks to teleworking. However, I was reading an article in the BRW which discussed Google and how it bucked [...]
This week I wanted to look at the other side of the delegation scale, at under delegation and the causes and consequences of failing to hand down work appropriately. Under delegation is when a superior withholds work, whether they realise it or not. Some of the reasons managers may under delegate include: 1. Feeling that [...]
This is the first of three blog posts on delegation and the spectrum of delegation that exists, at least in my mind, in any workplace. As someone who has been on both the giving and receiving ends of delegation throughout my time at uni and work (relatively short as they may be) I wanted to [...]
One of the topics I touched on briefly during my internship at Pollenizer was the importance of Team Happiness in contributing to the dynamic of the workplace. At this point, after working at Pollenizer for more than 3 months, I wanted to expand this and highlight the importance of having a positive workplace culture and [...]
My final week at Pollenizer and I’m not sure whether things have slowed down or that this week just seemed a bit more consistent than usual. Throughout the work I have been able to work on my University presentation with the intention of presenting part of it at X-Poll this week. While in previous posts [...]
The theme of my second last week at Pollenizer has been about team happiness and how to best achieve this. During my time at Pollenizer I have definitely come to appreciate the importance of team happiness in the workplace and the effect this has on the entire workplace, making it an enjoyable as well as [...]
My third week here and there are no signs of slowing down. This week’s theme is all about training and development, which is appropriate given this week marks the beginning of Pollenizer’s Academy sessions which are open to members of the public as well as staff in Pollenizer and is a great way to learn [...]
My second week at Pollenizer has revolved around the theme of induction, something particularly relevant given we have just onboarded a new employee this week – Humphrey. I must admit induction is not as interesting as recruitment and the number of processes and tools involved with induction are a lot less than recruitment. However while [...]
When I first started at Pollenizer, a lot of my friends and family joked that I would be getting coffees and photocopying for people. This was not helped given my first duty after induction was to unpack groceries. Yet my first week with Pollenizer could not have been more different to what I had imagined, [...]
