We celebrate the anniversary of the first woman that came to work for Light4U. ‘’You will be the first woman, and the last one,’’ they said to me with a wink. Now, 1/3rd of the company consists of women. Today Jantien works at Light4U for 15 years. A milestone to be proud of.
What do you like the most about your work at Light4U?
“I enjoy growing with the company. I do work that makes me happy and where I have all the space to be free and creative. We think in possibilities and not in impossibilities. Contributing to the development of the company is great to experience. For example, I played a big role in the entire process of our #Lightbuilders concept, wonderful! The great team and the unique working environment within the company give me a lot of energy.
What are your ambitions and dreams for the future of Light4U?
I want to continue to do great things with Light4U. It’s a wonderful company, and with the current corporate culture, we can accomplish a lot together. Hard work but also fun and jokes at times. “There’s a lot of ‘’icing on the cake’’ here. I want to continue to snack on a lot more of that icing.” Then who knows where we will be in a few years.
Hobbies and fun facts about you.
So I am the very first woman who came to work at Light4U. It was jokingly said(and with a little bit of a serious note): ‘’Yes, and you are also the last.’’ We now have a very nice mix with 7 women just in the marketing and sales department (as you can see it works quite well😉). I like to be active outdoors. I love a bike ride or a nice walk. I also like to play tennis. I gain a lot of energy from this. Exploring abroad is also something I really enjoy. I especially love Scandinavia, I’ve always had a predilection for that.
I always enjoy going to work and I am planning to do so for a long time to come.”
