What is the number one takeaway from your time here?
Michelle: For me, it has to be how kind and welcoming everyone is here. Pelican really care about their people and their families, supporting each other and the work they do. That feeling of togetherness runs across every floor and department without fail.
I know I speak for us both when I say that the support we’ve had here has been second to none – putting on a ‘mini academy’ just for us said it all about what it means to be part of #TeamPelican! They have made us feel so valued.
Jade: If I had to sum it up in three words, it’s support, flexibility, teamwork. Like Michelle, I’m struck by how welcoming, friendly and supportive everyone has been. The mini academy is such a fantastic way of welcoming new colleagues to the business; we were eased in gently rather than thrown in at the deep end and felt like part of the team from day one.
I’d also like to mention the mental health support – having Mental Health First Aiders available when needed is a strong message to send. There is the recognition that people have commitments and a life outside work, and that, if they are struggling, it’s ok to speak to someone.
