What is your name and title?
My name is Sinett Williams. I am a Senior Administrative Assistant, and I started my career with IT at Nestlé in 2019.
What is your favorite part about being a Senior Administrative Assistant, and what skills would someone need to be successful in your role?
Every day is a new experience for me. I enjoy having a variable and challenging work schedule where I can showcase my talents and have the sense of belonging collectively to a diverse and inclusive employer. One of the best things about my job is that as an Administrative Assistant I play a support role, which means I need a set of diverse skills to perform my job successfully. From organizing the office, to managing schedules, setting up meetings, and communicating on behalf of our company’s executives, some of my most important skills are organization and communication. The nature of my role at IT at Nestlé presents unlimited growth opportunities where I can use my skills to pursue the next level in my career, like an Executive Administrative Assistant, or possibly a career within Human Resources.
How has NesFlex created a healthy work/life balance for you and your family?
Flexibility in my work schedule is a key motivator for my overall job satisfaction, and my work life balance. Because of NesFlex, I’ve been able to schedule and accommodate home repairs, doctor appointments, family engagements, as well as maintain my work agenda like meetings and on-site support where needed.
Describe how you’ve felt supported in your role by IT at Nestlé.
I’ve chosen a hybrid work arrangement as that is what has worked best for me personally and professionally. Having the flexibility to choose my work arrangement takes the worry out of what would be an otherwise stressful situation and distraction from work. I have an active senior mom, an out-of-town dad, and an aging step dog, Bandit, who all need my help at any given time. It’s important to me to be available to them.
What does working at IT at Nestlé mean to you?
Working at IT at Nestlé means opportunity. It has created great opportunities for me to build my professional network, learn the ins and outs of the industry, and develop practical skills through the many learning platforms available to me.
