We connected with Vivian Wei, a student within the Human Resources Post Graduate Program at Humber College and asked her about her current Co-op placement. She shared with us how the workplace culture at Softchoice has helped shape her overall co-op experience.
What is your role as a co-op, and tell us what you do at Softchoice?
I’m the Training Coordinator in Sales Excellence at Softchoice. Let me tell you a little bit about my role! I have the amazing opportunity to be involved in many different dynamic projects such as content auditing and process improvements for Sales Academy, coordinating the onboarding experience for new Sales Reps, facilitating and coordinating the Take Your Kids to Work Day event and even getting to be involved in the Learning Management System migration.
What excites you about coming to work every day?
Your day is never the same! It’s been an exciting journey for me, and the most rewarding part is the people & culture across Softchoice and the People & Growth team. The Sales Excellence team has been a vital part of my Co-op experience and they have made me feel so at home and welcomed. Their dynamic presence, enthusiasm, and openness of learning has helped me through my journey of learning about how Sales Excellence impacts Softchoice. Another team that has been an integral part of my learning is the Talent Development team and who have included me in the LMS migration. Through this, I was able to contribute to larger initiatives and directly impact different teams.
At Softchoice, we strive to live by our values every day. In your role, how do you see these values come to life?
During my time at Softchoice, the value that I see come to life every day is: “We take care of each other.” Everyone at Softchoice embodies their culture through their work ethic, desire to help each other grow and truly bringing the human aspect to the organization.
If you had one piece of advice for a new co-op, what would it be and why?
Softchoice truly cares about your personal learning and growth, and so my advice to never stop asking questions!
