Employee of the Month: Ágnes Ilyés, Business Research Analyst
Join us in our journey to interview some of the most extraordinary individuals that continue to make The KPI Institute a role-model for others to follow. In today’s edition, we will be featuring February’s Employee of the Month, Ágnes Ilyés.
1. What is your role at The KPI Institute and what makes it special?
I work as a Business Research Analyst. What makes this position special is the variety of everyday tasks and the possibility of constantly learning new things.
Thus far, my favorite responsibility has been recording the Certified Data Analysis online training course, which was a totally new experience for me, and it is a defining event in my professional career.
Such a task comes with multiple layers of micro and macro managing, and I feel as if I’ve accumulated a great deal of experience as a direct result.
2. What do you find most challenging at The KPI Institute?
The chief thing I find truly testing, yet also rewarding, is the fact that every task is different from the other one. Such a high variety of different daily objectives makes my job very exciting.
It also helps develop new skills, however sometimes, like most roles positioned at the conflux of a company, all of this can be really overwhelming.
Nonetheless, the novelty that each task brings makes every day a new adventure.
3. What would be the three main career lessons that you have learnt thus far?
- With a good team, you can do things you thought impossible.
- Never say no, until you’ve tried it.
- Do not be afraid to ask questions.
4. If you could interview one person, either from the past or present, who would it be and why?
Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, since she was one of the most important figures in the British monarchy, which I find fascinating. Moreover, I’m someone who values one’s family a great deal, and we now know from history books that she was a good wife and mother.
I would like to ask her how she managed, as a woman in those times, to deal with her responsibilities and how she managed to keep the ”work-life balance” in check.
