Employee of the Month: Carmen Jisa, Financial Specialist
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 April’s Employee of the Month, Carmen Jisa.
1. What is your role at The KPI Institute and what makes it special?
My role within TKI revolves around collecting and recording data on everything related to the financial, accounting, and HR aspects of the company’s business with both international and domestic clients.
My duties are to ensure that all of The KPI Institute’s finances and monetary affairs are handled in an orderly, streamlined, and clear-cut fashion.
2. What do you find most challenging at The KPI Institute?
To complete all of the tasks I have in one day.
Working at TKI entails having to split up into multiple individuals, even more so now that we’ve transferred our teachings altogether in the e-format.
Due to our courses being mostly online now, demand has skyrocketed, and there are certain months where matters can get quite hectic from a financial administration point of view.
However, that’s all for the better, since more attendees mean more courses, which in turn means higher revenue. So overall, things are looking on the up and up.
3. What would be the three main career lessons that you have learnt thus far?
I wouldn’t say there are main career lessons that I’ve learnt, however, there are a few traits that I have developed, as a result of my work at The KPI Institute.
If I were to list the top 3, these would probably be perseverance, involvement, and the diligence to complete everything that needs to be done.
Like I mentioned previously, with the amount of work that’s been pouring in, one has to be very focused on their tasks, and luckily for me, I have had ample time to work on & develop these traits.
Now, I find myself in a position where I always find it easy to become 100% concentrated on what I have to achieve day in ‘n’ day out.
4. If you could interview one person, either from the past or present, who would it be and why?
One person which I’ve always found interesting, with a very compelling personality, is Michelle Obama. If I’d have the option, I’d very much enjoy having a personal conversation with her.
