The #CultureFirst series is a chance to showcase the team here at Culture Amp. We asked everyone a few questions which will give you an opportunity to get to know each of us a bit better.
Holly Bossert - Senior People Geek
I'm originally from PA but currently split my time between Baltimore, NYC, and Boca Raton. I've spent the last 10 years in engagement with a focus in healthcare.
Culture Amp: What can you do as a CAmper that you haven’t been able to do elsewhere?
Holly Bossert: I get to work with some really cool companies. I've really enjoyed healthcare but I'm enjoying the opportunity to learn about different industries.
CA: Best day you’ve ever had at work (here or anywhere else)?
HB: I was sitting in the lobby of a cancer research center waiting for my meeting and I happened to be sitting under the cancer bell. Patients ring this bell when they are declared in remission or cancer free. I was able to witness a patient ring the bell surrounded by all his treatment team. A nurse turned toward me with tears in her eyes and said "I can't believe they actually pay me to work here". That was when I really knew that creating a culture first organization was much more important than I ever realized.
CA: What do you geek out about outside from work?
HB: Currently I'm growing veggies in pots on my porch and I'm obsessed with making sure everything is perfect (soil, PH level on the leaves, enough bees for pollination, etc). It's a little out of control.
CA: What is something about you not many people know?
HB: I have a music box collection from when I was a kid. I have over 50 music boxes from all over the world. Currently my mother has them on display at her house.
CA: What’s on your playlist this week?
HB: Anything I can sing to. You don't want to hear me sing though.
CA: Where would you go on an all expense paid trip tomorrow?
HB: Bora Bora has always been on my list.
CA: What does culture first mean to you?
HB: Putting people first within an organization and trusting them to make the right decisions.
CA: What was the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
HB: "If you can look up you can get up."
CA: You pick a magazine up to read – what is it?
HB: Garden & Gun (don't laugh. It's really a good read)
CA: What’s up next in your Netflix queue?
HB: I'm currently working through "Bloodline" but I have yet to get into "Orange is the New Black" so I guess that should be on my list.
