In this month’s Employee Spotlight, we talk to Senior Business Manager Tina Colonico about her career at Redox.
When did you start at Redox, and what was the decision behind coming to Redox?
What initially impressed me about Redox was that it is a family-owned business. I felt a close connection to the company’s values, and it felt like the right move for me.
I started here in 2001 in a sales clerk role, and I learned a great deal during my first twelve months in that role. I progressed to a sales representative position shortly after that.
How has your career progressed over the years?
Over the years, I have had many opportunities to grow and develop professionally.
Thanks to a combination of hard work and ongoing commitment, I have been fortunate enough to have been exposed to several different business areas. This has really helped me gain valuable insight into the company and has deepened my own personal working knowledge within the industry.
Speaking about exposure to several different business areas, I hear you have recently transitioned from food and beverage to the industrial team; what’s that been like?
I have, yes! I feel so lucky to work at a company that constantly offers such opportunities. The move to another industry has been exciting and another excellent learning prospect.
The support from my peers has been overwhelming, and I am thrilled to have made the transition. In some ways, I feel as though I am a child in a candy shop with lots of new customers to learn about and new products to sell.
What stands out the most for you about working at Redox?
I honestly love my job, and working at Redox offers a genuinely positive culture with great people.
The workplace is a supportive environment, and the team genuinely works together, providing excellent guidance and advice.
How have processes or technology changed at Redox, and how has that benefited the customer?
One advantage I hear about all the time from my customers revolves around how we issue our quality assurance documents. With Redebiz, we can quickly and easily send all required quality assurance documents on file in one simple step.
Redebiz also allows us to track a customer’s release of blanket orders, allowing new contracts to be secured and minimising potential supply gaps.
So our system innovations genuinely have changed for the better, improving things for both customers and employees.
Definitely, Redox is a truly dynamic company. We constantly review our systems and procedures, searching for areas to improve. This allows us to meet our customers’ needs irrespective of the challenges faced.
What strategies does Redox employ to stay ahead of its competition?
We support our clients through the highs and lows. We pride ourselves on forming strong partnerships with them, and these relationships are crucial to our success.
Our genuine unwavering commitment to our clients and partners sets us apart from our competitors.
Over the past couple of years, this has been demonstrated repeatedly with all the challenges and upheaval.
You can’t beat Guns and Roses or Survivor – I love Welcome to the Jungle and Eye of the Tiger.
