I am very excited and extremely elated while writing this blog. The reason being that I am traveling to India next week for a 2 week vacation, especially to celebrate ‘Diwali – festival of lights’.
Getting back to updates about project and work life… It´s still good :)
I am in the same project, but I have grown in my role of Support Consultant, and my area of responsibilities vary from technical support to analysing data issues to testing to transition activities; basically supporting the complete business process of the client. The exposure is good and I am learning a lot. It`s also been one year since I started working at the ISC this October, so it was time for my project evaluation. It was nice. Essentially if you are doing good and giving in your best, your efforts will always be recognized and one will definitely get his/her due credit. The motivation and support you get from seniors and colleagues is incredible.
Last week I was at the ISC Groningen office to fulfill a very important responsibility. The elections for our works council were being held and I had to vote. Deprived of the voting rights here in The NL, I really wanted to make the most out of this chance :D. So I voted, and voted wisely! The results are out and we have a works council of 5 people. It is always good to have a team of people who can interact with management about employee rights, and discuss the decisions and policies for you. This is possible at very few places and one of them is ISC. So you basically get to voice your opinion which is very important for an individual.
Coming back to the ISC is always fun. Every time I come here I get to see a lot of new faces. It`s also nice to touch base with the oldies ( the 1 year old ISCers ;) ). Also, last Friday was different because we had a ‘Board games’ event night. So people were enjoying playing various board games like – Scrabble, Settlers of Catan and Monopoly. It was so much fun that I didn’t want to leave for Amsterdam (that`s where I live) and hence reached back at 11.30 PM. But all in all, it was a great day!
Until next time…
