Innovative, Collaborative, Customer-focused – Joyce’s Why Story
In just two and half months, I'll be celebrating my 4th-year anniversary with Qualtrics. Joining in September 2019 as a Senior Talent Acquisition Partner based in Singapore, I was part of a small team of 20 employees working in a service office. Fortunately, I was among the new hires who had the chance to visit the Sydney office for onboarding and attend a Talent Acquisition all-hands meeting at our Provo headquarters before the pandemic struck. Despite the challenges that followed, Qualtrics demonstrated resilience by swiftly transitioning to remote work. Reflecting on my journey so far, I'm grateful for the growth, opportunities, and inspiring collaboration I've experienced. I eagerly anticipate celebrating this milestone and the future with Qualtrics.
