This week represented a significant milestone in our PG journey as we marked 18 years in business. As a team we’ve been celebrating, reflecting and looking forward to what’s to come in our latest team catch ups and Q&A with our CEOs Poonam and Puneet Gupta.
To end the week we’re catching up with Shoaib, our Finance Analyst, Mannu, our Finance Analyst, Sonia, our Senior PHP Developer, Justine, our Logistics Coordinator, Ramy, our International Business Development Manager, Prashant, our Research Analyst, Iain, our Sales Executive and Govinda our Head of Research.
What has been your most satisfying moment in PG Paper?
“When I first joined PG Paper and took part in my first company-wide meeting and truly understood the huge scope of the company’s future.” – Sonia
“Each time my ideas and efforts are appreciated. Particularly when new training has taken place around the paper industry, helping to build my understanding and insight.” – Prashant
Is there any such thing as a typical day?
“No two days are the same in Logistics, every day brings a new challenge or opportunity. The morning always starts with a to-do-list but this usually changes as the day progresses and I speak to suppliers, customers and shipping lines.” – Justine
“There is no such thing as a typical day. The Research team receive new projects requests every day, helping to push our boundaries and increase our knowledge of the paper and packaging market.”– Govinda
What motivates you?
“Every day is a new opportunity to learn which is what really motivates me. My team members and supervisors are also very supportive and helpful.” – Mannu
“Appreciation from my team and leaders is what motivates me the most.” – Shoaib
What has been your biggest challenge? As PG grows what new challenges do you see over the horizon?
“I think the biggest challenge for me was my initial training as I work remotely. I have awesome mentors in Pat and Beth and they have been very helpful and patient at each stage of my training.” – Shoaib
How do you define success? What does success look like to you?
“Knowing that my work and responsibilities make a real contribution to the success of the company.” – Iain
“For me, success is learning new things every day.” – Mannu
Outside work, how do you relax?
“I like to work out and play sports, read a good book or watch movies.” – Ramy
We hope all our readers have enjoyed our latest Q&As with the PG team as we mark this important milestone together. Instead of celebrating by blowing up balloons, we are delighted to be partnering with UK-based environmental organisation, Tomorrow’s Forests, who have already planted over 9 million trees across the UK, helping to plant a native forest in the UK.
We are planting a tree for each member of the PG Team across the globe together with trees for our customers, helping to create a diverse, complete ecosystem habitat to flourish and be enjoyed for decades to come.
We look forward to celebrating many more milestones in the years ahead as we focus on our commitment to sustainability.
