Our people are one of our greatest assets. Learn all about the most memorable Frencken moments our global team members had over the years and what they do to unwind after work.
The work is challenging and diverse – everything from Mars rover instrumentation to Formula E racing engines. Producing quality products requires all our colleagues to participate in one form or another. Teamwork learning is addictive.
There are a lot of highlights working for Frencken and watching two of our motors launch up to the International Space Station (ISS) is definitely at the top. Nearly everyone here onsite had their hands on this particular project with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. I’m happy for our team’s success, and even happier for our contribution to climate change research.
Evenings. When most have turned off their work lights for the day and there is a calm in the building. It’s a particularly productive time for me.
When I am not working, I am usually found performing Jazz in clubs, riding motorcycles around racetracks, or getting out into nature.
Frenken’s culture that encourages freedom to explore diverse solutions. That freedom enables me to engage with creative ideas and solutions.
My favourite part is analysing an issue and solving it. Through in-depth analysis, we can get to the root cause and able to resolve the issue once and for all. The analysing process is exciting to me.
I remembered being filled with nervous energy because I was eager to contribute and hope I could value add to my team and the company. I was also looking forward to learning more about myself – strengths and areas of improvement.
When I am not working, I am constantly thinking about areas of improvement. A question I often asked myself– what can I do or learn that will help me improve? I love learning, and if there’s anything that can help me become better, I want to learn all about it!
I like what I do in Frencken. My role consists of special assignments, so it’s not monotonous, and I am kept interested. Also, back when I started, we were given a lot of room to contribute. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to contribute beyond my role and grow with the company.
One of the major highlights is being part of the team that contributed to the company getting listed in Singapore. It was my first time with such an assignment and it was exciting to be part of that corporate exercise.
There’s a misconception about the role of an internal auditor. An internal auditor’s role is not to penalise or pinpoint mistakes but to improve and enhance processes. I overcome the challenge by initiating more face to face interaction and reaching out more to share that we are here to help.
Lunch with my colleagues because we always make it a fun outing.
When I am not working, I am at my mother-in-law’s house helping her prepare meals and at the theaters catching the latest movies with my family.
There are two major reasons – the variety I have in my work and Frencken is close to my home.
Last year, a few customers were visiting my workspace. One of them came up to me and thanked me for the good work we did. I appreciated that very much!
Coffee in the morning – it gives me good energy to start my day!
When I am not working, I am doing sports, dancing, travelling, and spending time with my kids.
When I was doing my research on Frencken, I find myself wondering what it would be like to work on the interesting projects that the company works on. Secondly, I believe Frencken is a place that will enable me to develop my skills.
My favorite part is that my job never gets boring! There are new things to learn and solve almost every day. There’s also an immense satisfaction when I can meet customers’ requirements.
I was a little tensed because it was my first job, and I feel that Frencken would be a great place for me to start up my career.
The variety in functionalities keeps the job fresh and interesting for me. Another major reason that made me stay is having colleagues that display great teamwork.
The first experience was the ceremony of winning the smart manufacturing award in 2017. The second most memorable one was in 2019 – attending a party celebrating my 25th work anniversary with a colleague.
The first round in the factory in the morning – greeting my colleagues with a smile.
When I am not working, I am either shopping or playing tennis.
