Hello everyone! My name is Sara Cesin and I recently joined the Global Employer Brand team at Willis Towers Watson.
Apart from introducing myself I wanted to share with you my experience of joining Willis Towers Watson under the unusual situation caused by Coronavirus and say thank you.
Starting a new job can be a challenging and stressful experience under normal circumstances, never mind when there is a global pandemic. During such times we see the importance of technology as well as having an organized, welcoming and communicative team. Fortunately, this has been my case at Willis Towers Watson. With only five days in the company and working from home I already feel part of the family.
I’m based in Madrid, one of the cities with the highest number of people affected by COVID-19. We are in full lockdown and under state of alarm. However, the local HR and IT team managed to quickly and safely set up and send to my place all the necessary equipment for me to have a great first week. In addition, all the members of my team had already organized a full two-week onboarding process for me to get to know, understand and absorb everything about Willis Towers Watson’s culture, people and values.
As part of the employer branding team I’ve learnt in one week the importance of being coherent and sensitive about our messaging. Also, I’ve seen how Willis Towers Watson has demonstrated resilience and a great understanding of the health situation by implementing the necessary measures to take care of the wellbeing of its employees.
I am excited and grateful to join such an amazing company that in difficult times shows unity and humanity. Thank you all who have welcomed me, I hope to meet you soon under better circumstances.
