Igniting Growth and Powering Potential: Kinatico Development Week

Odelia Sarre, Chief People Officer at Kinatico has worked in people leadership across the technology sector for a number of years. As we kick off Development Week 2023, today she shares insight into how she is driving change and helping Kinaticans power their potential.

As Chief People Officer, I am always on the lookout for ways to unlock the potential of our employees and empower them to contribute to the progress of our organisation and themselves. Growth and development is a key part of our attraction and retention strategy and all teams are supported in consistently completing activities across the year through education, exposure, and experience.  That’s why we are thrilled to announce the commencement of Kinatico’s Development Week, Powering Potential. This internal event serves as a dedicated platform for our organisation to educate, motivate, and foster teamwork.

Kinatico’s Development Week, Powering Potential is a vehicle for our organisation to stop and look at how we innovate and collaborate and how the tools we use – support us. There are 15 dynamic sessions scheduled across the week, led by different areas of the business that aim to educate, motivate, and bring groups together to collaborate effectively. We have taken the proactive step of rescheduling recurring meetings across the organisation, to prioritise attendance at these valuable sessions.

One of Kinatico’s values is “gaps are opportunities to make a difference.” A number of the sessions are focused on getting into the laundry list of things that have been on the “to-do” list while others are being used to educate and motivate our teams on our future as an organisation and where they will bring their unique skills and experience to contribute. 

With employee well-being front of mind, we are particularly excited about a session featuring the esteemed award-winning health journalist, Casey Beros who will generously be sharing with our people tools and insights, empowering them to take control of their health and a challenge to keep them accountable to themselves. I’ve had a sneak peek and Casey’s well-being model aligns very much with my own ethos of progress over perfection!
