I am sitting in my Jessore-based office wearing a wonderful pink shalwar kameez (local dress) surrounded by my lovely colleagues who are chatting and laughing. I My name is Isabel Kasprowiak and I am German-Filipino; I was born and raised in Germany. Travelling, experiencing foreign countries, and visiting my Asian relatives has characterized my entire life.
I am a senior in the Saxion Hospitality Business School in Deventer, Netherlands. My study exchange year in Barcelona and my experience working in Bangkok, Ireland, and Spain have instilled in me a diverse understanding of different cultures and people. During my studies I recognized that sustainability is the future of a new, fresh, and innovative hospitality industry. Consequently, the internship with Panigram seemed like a unique opportunity for challenging myself and broadening my horizon. Currently I am working on a sustainable HR strategy for Panigram, and I am actively involved in the recruitment and training process of its staff. The HR strategy will represent Panigram’s mission of being not only environmental, but also socially responsible, consequently we are trying to include as many local staff as possible.
