WHY I LOVE MY JOB
I love my job as administrative assistant in Human Resources at CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. CBL is a shopping center developer, which owns and manages properties in 27 states. One of the things I enjoy about my job is that something tangible happens because of our collective efforts. Work begins on a project, and on its completion there is something tangible (a shopping center) and there is a great sense of satisfaction from being a part of that. Every day is different and fast paced. The management team is committed to working hard and developing quality projects.
During my more than 30 years with CBL and its predecessor company, I have served in various roles before joining Human Resources in 2005. The entire HR team creates a collaborative environment. All members of the team have the ability to communicate well and work effectively as part of a team truly exemplifying the team spirit.
CBL celebrated its 30th anniversary in business on July 1. Over the years I was given the opportunity to develop a newsletter that became a corporate communication vehicle, along with a periodic lunch and learn educational program - featuring speakers inside and outside the organization. It is called Team Voices and provides a forum for everyone, from secretaries to senior management. The newsletter highlights achievements, individual accomplishments and reports on the presentations. Team Voices has helped us to achieve our objective of improved communication among departments along with recognition for employees. It also allows me to express creativity and to interact with many different people both inside and outside the organization. I appreciate the autonomy the company allowed me to conceptualize and bring this project to fruition. Recently I received new graphic design software, which enables me to produce a professional product. Team Voices is an established communication vehicle of CBL today and I am happy to have had the opportunity to develop it.
These are the reasons I love my job!
