Regional Patient Experience Manager, Crothall
“I help put meaning behind what our people do every day. They are making a big impact on lives. In essence I am helping them move from cleaning to caring.”
Cook, Bon Appétit Management Co.
“I grew up in Ludhiana in India’s state of Punjab and I’ve recently started experimenting with fusions — mixing some of my mom’s recipes with my own zest. Our Farm to Fork relationships have encouraged me to try new ingredients, like incorporating many different pumpkins and squash that I’ve never tried before into my dishes. At Bon Appétit, I don’t have to stick to a set menu, I can let my true flavors shine through my cooking!”
VP Performance Excellence, Morrison Community Living & Touchpoint
“When I think about Compass Group, the phrase ‘The Power of Change’ comes to mind. After spending 11 years in marketing, I just transitioned to a new challenge, entering the field of finance and I couldn’t be more excited. To have the opportunity to make this huge shift in my career speaks to the power of Compass. I don’t know too many companies that allow this type of transition.”
