Reynold appreciates that a lot of care goes into understanding what you’re passionate about, what sort of tasks you struggle with, and what things you’re good at: “This has allowed me to contribute strongly in the areas I’m passionate about, and also perform better in the tasks I struggle with.”

_MG_5725To thrive at edge, you don’t need previous HR experience, says Denise: “When I joined edge, I had no formal work experience with HR. I’ve learned so much about the space in the time that I’ve been here. Aside from Human Resource and Recruitment knowledge and skills,  I’ve also learned about business advisory, engaged with design thinking, and project management, which have also added to my skill set.”

Fabianna has been here for over two years and still learns something new every week: “The only way you improve at anything is to get feedback from the people you work with. We’ve got a strong feedback culture here, and I never feel unsure about my performance on projects I’ve worked on.”

Mwalimu enjoys the freedom to map out his own path for growth and development: “The team takes the time to understand what tasks and activities I was good at, and allowed me to build a role that not only matches my interests but also brings me closer to achieving my career goals.”
